I love that this location is near my job. The food is absolutely excellent! It is crowded at lunchtime though, and there have been times when I had to go somewhere else to each when I had a limited time frame.

I stopped in the one in LAX. I loved the staff all talking to each other , and the guys calling put your food order was awesome! The burger was pretty darn good for the low price! And my milkshake was the bomb!

While I was passing by, I decided to grab some lunch at the Habit on Winnetka. I ordered the pastrami sandwich on a roll and a drink. Suffice it to say, it was very good. The food was ready is a very short time and it was just as I ordered it. While Habit isn't going to set any gourmet... More

My wife and I grabbed dinner at this place before a movie at the theater across the way. The staff were good overall and the food was freshly prepared and hot. I would recommend this location if you are in the area and want a very good burger and fries.

3 ahead of me in line, took 2 minutes to get there 1 minute to order, 4 minutes to get my correct order. Hot, juicy, made to offer order. That the way it's supposed to be done.

Have heard it is sensational, but found it merely good to very good. Apple Pan in Westwood is my personal favorite. But this was satisfactory when in a hurry, as we were when we were about to attend a movie nearby.

When you want an excellent fast food hamburger, The Habit is THE place to go. The service is excellent (some of the friendliest employees anywhere), the food is always prepared as requested, and it is consistently hot and tasty. I have always and will always love In-N-Out but their choices are more limited. At The Habit there are other sandwich... More

Located in the same shopping center as the Pacific Winnetka 21 movie theatres, the Habit offers semi fast food at very reasonable prices. For instance, their double cheese burger with fries and a drink is only $7-ish, and their single w. fries & drink is $5-ish. They offer a nice variety of common burger themes, along with some non-beef alternatives... More

I really wanted to write a review for this Habit. I always get the veggie burger, which is excellent! What I like about coming here is that I see that it is a well-run place; clean, nice and the staff is always so friendly! Thumbs up for that!

Very good burgers (other foods are good too) but highlighted by an efficient and friendly staff. Next to In-n-Out it's the place for hamburgers.
