On Hollister food was very hot and tasted fresh. Can be busy with a wait to order and hard to find a seat if busy. Parking in back. Some tables near the road. Large menu with burgers, different sandwiches and salads. There are two more Habits in the area. Santa Barbara downtown and at the mall on Hollister.

Love to go here with the whole family for lunch. Great burgers, great cobb. Sometimes there's a long wait, but it's worth it for good food.

Busy Busy Busy place and for good reason. I usually get their burgers which are always perfection, but tried the Chicken Sanwich this time. Oh my was it good! It was on grilled sourdough, yum, with grilled onions double yum, lettuce etc. and had a choice of BBQ or teriaki sauce. I got the teriaki. It was so perfect, there are no words. The teriaki was not overpowering which it can be at some places.
Can't go wrong wtih this one...can't wait to go back!!
And....the staff are all very nice and friendly. When a place is that busy, you wouldn't be surprise if they might be frazzled or grumpy but everyone was smiling and so nice.

This is the ultimate experience of the classic burger joint. No fancy tables, no fancy service. But a burger and fries that can rival any burger and fries in town. The people who work there clearly enjoy their jobs, and the customers clearly enjoy the food. Big lunch crowd, but they seem to keep up with it.
