Compared to other fast food chains, the Habit is better. The service is quick, there is a system in place for ordering and getting your food. You are given a buzzer that flashes when your meal is ready. One person puts the order together while another actually presents it to you. And all the while you can see the cooks... More

Even if there is a line, the service is good. Fresh made to order food. Choose sweet potato fries as your side. Portions are large, and full of flavor.You can eat inside as well as outside. If burgers are not your thing there are numerous salads to choose from as well as chicken sandwiches. The habit is not your fast... More

There is always a thick halo of smoke around the Habit. For a mostly vegetarian person that is hard to take. My family generally orders chicken entrees or salads. The dressings are mayonnaise-laden and the salads lack the tasty variety of produce you would hope to see if you are into veggies. The food is still acceptable anyway, although the... More

If a burger is more to you than simply fast food, The Habit is a destination for you. From the traditional fare of the cheeseburger to the more exotic in the form of a teriyaki burger topped with pineapple, a plethora of burger confections await you with fresh and thick slabs of onions, cheese and tomato in attendance. Moderately priced,... More

One of the best fast food burgers I have ever had. French fries are hot and delicious. The shakes are just the best. You can also get an ice cream cone for a dollar, what a deal!

Fast yummy food. Burgers are great. Salads are good here too. It's always busy but the wait is never too long.

Let's begin by saying that The Habit is not going to be habit forming, for what we had, was only one more on a long chain of similar items. Not a revolutionary eatery by a long shot. Yes, the investment is there, plenty of bells and whistles, and the prices way up there to reassure the patron that this is... More

We visit the Habit frequently. If you want a good burger at a great price, visit it! We also like their chicken sandwhich, and our daugbters like the grilled mahi mahi sandwhich and the tri tip sandwhich as well. Your orders are cooked while you wait, on a grill. It is clean and the prices are very good. It has... More
