The Habit

The Habit Burger (2720 Nutwood Ave.) is a chain that originated up the coast in Santa Barbara in 1969. Their food has that Californian healthy feel to it. Fresh produce tops their burgers and the method of cooking (char-grill) leaves them less greasy.

People often try to compare the Habit with In-N-Out burger so we will use that famous benchmark here. The burger patties themselves are comparable, but they compare a little lower than In-N-Out burgers. The patties are about the same size but the meat is just not quite as good as that of an In-N-Out burger. The Habit takes the extra time to chop the lettuce by hand so it is always fresh and you don’t the the lump of iceberg lettuce that is often found in an In-N-Out burger. You can also get bacon or pineapple on your burger at the Habit.

The Habit has six types of grilled sandwiches. I tried the Tri-Tip Sandwich. Here again, I am spoiled, but this time by the tri-tip sandwiches served by the church at the Farmer’s Market in downtown Fullerton. By comparison the Habit’s version was overcooked, and chewy. The meat was laid in a lump but it did taste good.
