We started out on our way to Slater's 50/50 to try their great burgers again. But when Sweetie Pie called ahead to find there was about an hour wait ( the NCAA basketball playoffs were in progress), we decided to change our route and head over to the new Habit Burger Grill in Santa Ana. We had heard they had good burgers and wanted to check it out for ourselves. The restaurant was clean and inviting, and the staff friendly and helpful. They have a nice menu with burgers, sandwiches, salads, shakes and ice cream.  Everything is reasonably priced.

Sweetie Pie and her mother each ordered the double bacon cheeseburger. I had the bacon cheeseburger and a pastrami sandwich. We all shared orders of onion rings, french fries and sweet potato fries. The burgers were big, freshly cooked to order and very delicious. They come with lettuce, tomato, caramelized onions, mayo and pickles on a soft toasted bun. Really a great burger! The fries and onion rings were also very good ( and they will give you extra dipping sauces at no charge- we had Ranch and Blue Cheese). 

We had heard they had good burgers, but what surprised me was how good the pastrami sandwich was. Grilled lean pastrami with melted Swiss cheese, tomato, caramelized onions, mayo and mustard. The bread was freshly toasted, but still soft enough to make it easy to eat.

Today's Habit Burger Grill lunch gets three thumbs up from the 3 Tubby Tummys!


  1. This place is great! I'v been to the one near CSFU

  2. Good pastrami is hard to find. Thanks for the heads up!
