This little hole in the wall Habit has always delivered the best grilled burgers. I cannot order anything but the "Aloha" burger with pineapple and teriyaki. I have tried several other Habit burgers around California but this little "original" Habit is the best.

There is nothing bad on the menu here. Great food, amazing and friendly service. Real shakes, outstanding onion rings. You can even get healthful options here, the salads and ahi are really good.

The Habit is way better than In 'n Out. Great grilled burgers with pepperoncini or hot peppers available. My go-to place when I'm hungry for a burger. And the fries are great, too. Good prices. Also salads and sandwiches.

When we moved here 26 years ago, this place was recommended as the best burger in town and to this day, it still is. We now eat lettuce wrapped burgers and they are delicious. Great turkey burgers and wonderful fries either regular or sweet potato....More
