the habit double charburger

Revisiting The Habit, a fast food burger chain that started in Santa Barbara CA and has a smattering of locations in the U.S., I ordered the Double Charburger. This is a big sandwich. With the grilled onions features so prominently on this burger I cannot help but compare it with the In-n-Out DoubleDouble. But don't be fooled: The Habit double is much meatier than its rival.

It probably stacks up more akin to a regular hamburger at Five Guys. Let's see if that's true:

Item Size (g) Calories Fat (g) Sat Fat (g) Cholesterol (mg) Sodium (mg)
The Habit Double Charburger w/cheese 356 780 67 24 150 2810
In-n-Out Double Double 330 670 41 18 120 1440
Five Guys Cheeseburger* 453 944 70 28 175 1387

*Since you build your own Five Guys burger, for comparison we used the cheeseburger (2 patties), 2 slices of cheese, lettuce, tomato, onions, pickles, and mayo on a bun, of course.

So yeah, it's in the ballpark. Look at that crazy amount of sodium though in The Habit option. Wow. 

Flavor-wise, you could build a Five Guys burger to taste similar. But the meat is definitely different at The Habit. More smoky and, well, meaty. If In-n-Out's patties were thicker I imagine this is how they'd taste. I like all three and The Habit is worth a trip. At $9 for the combo, it's not cheap though.
