everyone told me "you have to try Habit!" I did and I can get a better burger at Denny's or Shell beach liquor. Overpriced, over hyped and over cooked. no thanks!

The burgers here are hard to beat, as the meat is first class, moreover they are large, and juicy, with generous amounts of melted cheese. Homer Simpson would spend a day eating here, Hope this has been of some help for you...

Had lunch with a friend and service was quick and food was good. She ordered a salad with chicken and there was quite a bit of chicken on top. My teriyaki burger was very good also. Always a safe bet for good food and friendly service.

You can't beat the Habit for value meals. The food is fresh and very tasty. I love the teriyaki and pineapple burger, fries are good too.

I love eating at the Habit! I always get a really good burger that doesn't feel like a grease bomb and is very affordable. Their fries are delicious. In the past I have ordered their Ceaser Salad (with and without meat on it) and it is a good Salad. I recommend this place as a quick place to grab a... More

Burgers are consistently excellent at the SLO location, and at busy times you may have to wait ten minutes, but that won't kill you. Also there are a few non-burger options that are surprisingly delicious ... salads, for example. The non-burger menu items are definitely not afterthoughts!

I ate here with my family during the Farmers market in downtown SLO. It was very busy but the staff was efficient in taking and getting out orders. I had the Santa Barbara Char with onions and avocado and it was a very high quality burger. The rest of our crew had various burgers and all got a thumbs up.... More

Freaking delicious! I only learned about these chargrilled burgers on my latest trip to California and could not wait to try one for myself. The wait time was kind of long but the burger was worth it. Delicious fries, too. Excellent server and good choices on the menu at decent prices. I'm a believer.
