We love their burgers and onion rings are to die for. I like their fish on a bed of lettuce too. The place is can get busy so we don't go very often. It's close to the beach and is a decent meal for a family.

We have been going to the various Habits for many years, beginning with the original in Santa Barbara. Food is consistently excellent. and reasonably priced. Order at the window and pick up when the food is ready. Service is always prompt and friendly.

My wife and I shared the veggie burger and potato fries. And although my wife is not a vegetarian, she really enjoys the veggie burger at the Habit.

My wife and I were starving after a morning spent combing the beach. We went downtown to the info center and asked where we could get a good burger. He said just down the block at Habit. Good choice! The Santa Barbara burger with avocado on it was amazing. The fries were good. If only judging on fires I would... More

Have been eating their food for years. The staff are friendly and informative. The service, while it is busy most of the time, is quick enough not to lose your cool. A great spot to grab a burger for lunch downtown, close to the beach and pier.

Limited parking, easy walk if your staying at the Bestwestern or Vagabond. If your in Ventura give this Habit a... More
