The Habit Burger Grill on Tyler in the City of Riverside, California has been open for just about a year, but it has recently become one of my family’s favorite places to eat.
If it weren’t for my oldest son, I might not have tried it. A few months ago, after a long day of water polo, my son wanted a Habit burger. Unfortunately, it was closed by the time we arrived. I promised him another trip.
The next time we visited, I ordered something too… I was hooked.
The Habit offers more than just burgers, as you can see from the menu:
The food is prepared to order, and I have never seen it wait under a heating lamp to be served. As soon as the food is ready, the buzzer goes off.
Since becoming a fan, we have eaten at a few different Habit locations, including Riverside Plaza in the City of Riverside…
… and Huntington Beach in Orange County, California:
We have only had good experiences, but The Habit on Tyler in Riverside is my favorite. One of the reasons is because of the people who work here:
Along with French fries and sweet potato fries, The Habit also has onion rings. They are awesome.
My wife usually alternates between the Chicken Club or the Santa Barbara Cobb salad.
Our kids all get burgers.
I get burgers too, but mine usually arrive in a bowl without a bun. I really like the burgers here even without a bun. The burgers are charbroiled and seasoned, and the bacon always seems to be fresh.
The first time I tried The Habit was a few years ago in Lake Forest, California. I was not a fan. It must have been an off day, because fast forward to today and The Habit is one of my new favorite places.
