The scent of freshly frying burgers will draw you like a magnet. Fresh is the word as cooking only starts when you order. Well worth the small wait. Don’t miss a side of the tempura green beans!

Passing through Santa Barbara and dropped into this small Burger grill which has nice outdoor seating on a beautiful sunny day. Burgers are very ordinary taste just like Mc Donalds burgers, sweet potato fries are yummy and the staff are very friendly.

Habit is a small local chain in SB with 5 locations. It's not fast food, but the burgers are definitely "great food (reasonably) quickly". If you can wait 10-15 minutes, I promise you these burgers are not only fabulous but well worth waiting for. Go!

My burger was super good and fresh. The ranch was also stellar. The prices were very reasonable. My only complaint is that a homeless man stuck his finger up the water dispenser since it’s located outside.
