The Habit; Santa Barbara, California
August 3, 2012
This post may not interest you at all… there will be no pretty food and no amazing restaurant with a gorgeous space.
This is about a burger joint.
I mentioned this place yesterday in my blog about the town… it is a proper fast food burger place, but instead of getting crappy food at the end it’s freshly cooked and really great, if not good for you it is still ‘junk’.
The menu is simple, pick the burger, the fries and the side (or a salad) and you drink… I had to go for a malted shake, why don’t we have that here?
There are a few tables out front and in the sunshine the majority of people just eat here. You order at the window…
You get your drinks…
And this little gadget that beeps and flashes when your food is ready. Very handy, especially because although the food is fast it is cooked for you so it does take a few minutes. This means you can go for a wander and window shop while you wait, it also means the staff don’t have to find people.
Then you get your food. The burgers were so good, proper thin hamburgers with pickles and those fake cheese slices with a little salad, and great fries.
I didn’t see a McDonald’s in this town, and now I know why. (By the way I am not comparing the two, you cannot)
