Habit Burger: A habit that may become an addiction

Written by: Caitlin Kevett

Habit Burger located on Rt 1 in Lawrenceville, has given Central Jersey a touch of sunny Southern California–where the franchise began–in only three months of it being opened.

It is the perfect combination of cheap, but good quality, food, excellent customer service, and an overall friendly environment, which makes visits to this restaurant your first good habit.

On a recent visit, the majority of customers were there for the first or second time. They only had good things to say.

“It’s a great place,” said Habit Burger customer Vinicio, adding, “It’s our second time coming here.”

Though it’s new to central New Jersey, The first Habit Burger was opened in Santa Barbara, California in 1969, and can now be found nation wide.

Habit focuses on freshness and visitors compliment the availability of fresh food on the menu.

“I got the cobb salad, she got the double burger, and the kids got chicken nuggets.” said Habit Burger customer Paul, while out for a bite with his family, “We don’t go to too many fast food places, but everything was pretty good.”

Habit Burger tries to differentiate themselves from other fast food chains, despite sharing similar qualities.

Khala Bagwell of Hamilton said, “This place kind of reminds me of a fast paced Red Robin.”

One of the best items on the menu is the teriyaki charburger, which is packed with an almost overwhelming number of flavors. This burger is topped with ingredients such as grilled pineapple, teriyaki sauce, as well as classic burger toppings like fresh lettuce, onions, juicy tomatoes, mayo and a pickle. Ordering the sweet potato fries adds an even bigger punch to the meal.

The total cost of a burger and fries is around $7 which, when compared to McDonald’s prices of a regular cheeseburger meal being $8, makes the options at Habit Burger a steal!

When asked about the freshness of the food, General Manager, Brian Berry said, “The food is never frozen. We have a special meat packing plant in New York, and all of the toppings are fresh.”

The freshness of the meat can be easily tasted in the juiciness of their burgers. Habit Burger also has a dedication to the freshness of their vegetables. According to the kitchen Manager Brian Pierce, “In the morning there is no prep besides lettuce, tomato, and salads. At around 2 pm we send employees to the back to prep some more so that it’s not cut and open all day long.”

The Habit Burger staff are friendly and welcoming, and will offer help with any questions on the food. After placing the order, you can either wait and watch, since it is prepared right in front of you, or you can sit back at a table and have a mental vacation imagining you are in Southern California where Habit burger began.
