you can get anything at this local chain- burger, turkey burger, chicken or veggie burger. Fries and onion rings are always good- great kids menu too.

“Best burger in town.”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

But don't just think that the Habit has just burgers. They also have several salads, and other sandwiches, all done the Habit way. Always consistant and just the best place to get a burger and fries at lunch. They will even do a combo of 1/2 onion rings (deliscious !) and 1/2 fries.

“I BROKE THE HABIT”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

First of all, I'm not a fast food chain fan, but with just a few minutes to eat, I broke down and tried the branch in La Cumbre. Ordered the double burger meal. Man, those burgers are Mojave DRY. And the fries were done inconsistently: some were crisp, some were mushy, but all were cold. The counter service was way slower than places like McDonalds or Burger King. You need to take a buzzer and hang around.

If fast food is what you're looking for, stick with McDonalds. Or get one of those fabulous sandwich meals at Gelson's for around $8.

“Okay, no more.”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

I had their "classic chargrilled" burger, which was certainly cooked on the spot and used fresh ingredients - but had a sort of bland, uninteresting flavor. Just a burger, no less - but certainly no more.
Oh, and this isn't a restaurant, it's a hole-in-the-wall place with a few tables outside.
