Dig Into a Classic Charburger at The Habit Burger Grill

When The Habit Burger Grill first debuted, its signature charburger cost a mere 24 cents. The year was 1969 and the setting was Santa Barbara, California. What began as a single burger bungalow, a labor of love by two brothers, quickly exploded into something more. Now, nearly half a century later, The Habit Burger Grill boasts locations all across the country — including a new one in Gaithersburg.

Head to the eatery to taste why its burgers have won over taste buds all around the nation. The signature charburger comes topped with the standard lettuce, tomato, pickles, and mayo, plus a layer of caramelized onions for an extra infusion of flavor. The Santa Barbara Char pays homage to The Habit's hometown with cheese and avocado atop two burgers, all stuffed between two pieces of grilled sourdough bread. If you're looking for something lighter, try the mushroom "burger," which skips the beef in favor of a carefully seared portabella and brings the flavor with roasted garlic aioli.
