The Habit – Mission Valley, San Diego
The Habit has finally made it’s way to San Diego! I only tried The Habit once within the past year. We were up in the San Fernando Valley looking for a snack to eat before heading back to San Diego. A lot of people were raving about their burgers, so we had to check it out. It was delish.
Fast forward a year later and we were excited to see The Habit setting up shop in the Mission Valley area over by King’s Fish House. Is The Habit the best burger in San Diego now? We finally gave it a try today to find out.
Do you recognize this building? It used to be the old Baja Fresh. Fuddruckers is just across the parking lot. Lots of competition for your burger dollars!
Menu was simple and inviting. Nice lighting and setup throughout. We could tell there was a lot of energy in the place and lots of staff bustling around.
Apparently it opened up first in Santa Barbara, CA. The girl at the door greeted us and said they now have over 40 stores!
So my wife and I decided to split 2 burgers. The first one was a Charburger ($2.95) with American cheese ($0.50 extra) and the next the Teriyaki Charburger ($3.25) with swiss cheese ($0.50 extra). Kind of looks like In’n’Out burgers, huh?
We also ordered frings (1/2 fries and 1/2 onion rings). The onion rings were crispy and tasty (comes with ranch), but the fries were definiltey not hot (they look better than they taste). Hopefully next time we’ll see a fresh batch.
One bonus item I liked was the $0.95 ice cream cone! It was a soft service ice milk which I love (hard to come by these days). Next time I’ll try a malt or something.
All in all, The Habit is a welcome addition to the burger mix in San Diego. The more competition the merrier! It makes everyone strive for better results.
BTW, if you’re not in the mood for a burger, The Habit also has grilled chicken and veggie sandwhiches, as well as salads.
