Great burgers and fries. Can't help but love the old school approach. Took a little longer but tasted way better than fast food and was worth the wait. I think this is a chain but it had an original feel to it.

Driving San Diego to Carmel and stopped for gas. Across the street was The Habit Burger restaurant. Such a great fresh burger and sweet potato fries were the best ! We will be looking out for more on future road trips.

Absolutely great. Cheap eats, close by the airport, fast and friendly service. Quality burger, good cheese and bacon done right. Perfect place to stop for a quality bite which is fast without being fast food. Parking in the back.

I actually worked for them when I was 16. They really due use quality products. You can get a nice juice burger for 11.50. Yes its a little price but worth it. They also have grate salads.

Yes, you can get lettuce as a bun, it is called protein style. Also, if you tell them you have gluten problems, they can tell you what they have that is gluten free.
