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.

Plenty of seating, good service and selections. Fries were a little off and dry, but burger was excellent. Good taste and price is very decent.

Had a Santa Barbara Style Char and fries as lunch: burgers in style, with fried onions and avocado. Certainly a step up from MacDonalds...but basically the same idea. A nice break from shopping in a nice place like SLO!

Great corner location, downtown SLO. Always crowded and tables are at a premium. Staff can't do enough to please with great attitude. Service is fast with pagers. Burgers are fantastic and Albacore tuna sandwich is the best. Value is outstanding.

I had lunch at the Habit, which had a busling crowd. Always a good sign of good food. I wasn't sure I was going to find a place to sit, but they were turning tables pretty quick. Most people were having burgers, which looked great, but I went for the ahi burger. It was juicy, delicious, flavorful, grilled just right.... More

This place is not good. It has more options than McDonald's, say, with optional guacamole and sourdough bread, but the quality is poor. I had the veggie burger and I was grossed out. My husband, who is NOT picky, had a burger and said it "was not good." The prices are cheap, and maybe this would be good for families... More

We stopped in late in the afternoon and ordered a Santa Barbara Style Double Cheeseburger which had avocado and came on grilled sourdough bread (for only $5.90!). The burger was cooked perfectly and tasted really good. They offer combo meals adding fries and a drink, as well. My group also ordered a grilled cheese sandwich ($3.50) and sweet potato fries...

Had heard that this place had great burgers, but was disappointed! The burgers were subpar and the onion rings were just OK. Too bad!

Burger was good (I seldom eat red meat, but this is worth it) and although fairly modest in size, share a side of fries with one or two people to round it out nicely. You can also get a fountain drink (I like tea with some lemonade in it) and spend some fun time people-watching from the large windows facing... More
