The Habit Burger Grill Restaurant Review

: In recent years, the popularity of this little burger joint has spread well beyond the region. But it all began just up the coast in Santa Barbara. The Ventura location sticks to the time-honored formula that began in 1969. Smoke from the charbroiler beckons school kids, surfers, blue-collar workers and the suit-and-tie set. Everyone loves The Habit. Though burgers are the eatery’s claim to fame, healthier alternatives such as fish sandwiches --- made with hand-cut and filleted tuna steaks --- and crisp salads are available, too. Desserts are limited to shakes and malts, hand-blended and made to order. (Other Ventura County locations include Camarillo, Oxnard, Simi Valley, Newbury Park and Thousand Oaks.)
