The Habit is a small burger chain with about 100 locations, mostly in California but also spilling over into Arizona and Utah. Founded in Santa Barbara, CA in 1969, The Habit offers a decent selection of burgers, sandwiches and salads. The burgers range from the core "original" Charburger to fancy deluxe versions with mushrooms or Teriyaki sauce.
My friend Tom and I tried it out recently. We both opted for the original cheeseburger, his with the default Swiss cheese and mine with American.
The burger tasted fresh and hearty and arrived loaded with condiments including optional grilled onions. As you can see from the pics, they don't skimp when building these sandwiches. And these are just the singles.
Give it a try next time you find yourself near one. It's a nice alternative to the mainstream burger choices.
