Free Burgers This Saturday at Habit Burger

Come taste a Habit burger this Saturday at the La Canada Flintridge Town Center.

I was so excited to see The Habit Burger sign on the corner of the LCF Town Center at Foothill Boulevard and Angeles Crest Highway. The first time I bit into a Habit Burger, I said "Wow." It's a different flavor than other fast food burger places. It wasn't greasy. The lettuce and tomatoes are fresh and crisp tasting. The grilled onions enhanced the flavors.

This morning, I walked by the open door of the restaurant to learn when it will be opening. As painters were finishing up a wall near the entrance, a man in charge approached me. When I asked him about the restaurant's debut, he said, "Come this Saturday (Dec. 1) between 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. or 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. We will be serving free burgers, French fries and a drink."

The official opening day is Wednesday, Dec. 5, however, the Habit Burger will be cooking up burgers throughout the weekend to train the staff and entice the community to enjoy the Habit experience. 

The first Habit Burger opened in 1973 serving charbroiler burgers in Santa Barbara. The owner Brent Reichard added a fresh grilled albacore sandwich made from line-caught tuna. Later, he introduced a Veggie Burger on a toasted wheat bun.

Based on the menu on their website, The Habit offers 5 different types of 100% fresh ground beef Charburgers. They also cook up two types of grilled chicken breast sandwiches, a hand cut tri-tip steak sandwich and 6 different salads.

Kids under 10 can eat a burger with fries, apple slices, applesauce and a drink for under $4. Other options include chicken tenders or a grilled cheese sandwich.

Shakes and malts are made with real ice cream. For dessert, they make ice cream sundaes and sell vanilla ice cream cones.

The Habit Burger may become an enjoyable habit for you and your family.

The Habit Burger is located at 990 Town Center Dr., La Canada Flintridge.

On Sunday from 12-2 pm Habit burger will offer its full menu and donate 100% of the proceeds to the La Canada Educational Foundation. It is very generous of them and I hope tons of people will turn out to support a new La Canada business and make a contribution to our schools at the same time.

Thanks for that info, Josh! How cool. What a lovely way for a new business to ingratiate its way into the community. I've been to the Habit in Burbank and couldn't get over how fresh their buns and fries were - the perfect shoestring fries! Hope the line's out the door :-)
