This may come as a surprise to you, but the restaurant which has received accolades for serving the best burger in Consumer Reports “America’s Best & Worst Food” isn’t one that’s had a presence in our region…until just last week.
Habit Burger has finally planted roots near DC! December 4th marked the grand opening of Habit Burger Grill’s flagship DMV location. Located in the Belmont Chase Shopping Center in Ashburn, VA, this is the first of several restaurants they are planning to open in the DC metropolitan area.
About Habit Burger
Habit Burger is a staple burger joint for the West Coast, having opened its first restaurant in Santa Barbara, CA back in 1969. Today they have grown to more than 130 locations in 15 markets across 9 states, the majority being in California. This uber-popular fast-casual dining concept is known for serving up its famous Charburgers and other treats. They make fresh, made-to-order chargrilled burgers and sandwiches featuring USDA choice tri-tip steak, grilled chicken and sushi-grade tuna cooked over an open flame.
Emphasis on Fresh
Habit Burger is big on fresh food! Habit Burger prides itself in never serving burgers made from frozen ground beef; each Charbuger is made to order with fresh ground beef. Their Tuna Steak sandwiches are made with line caught, sushi-grade tuna, flown in from Fiji several times per week. Fresh chicken breasts are hand-filleted and marinated in-house. Tri-tip steak is trimmed and marinated in-house. Salads are fresh and made to order, and their house-made ranch dressing is prepared fresh daily. The fixings for the burgers, lettuce, tomatoes and onions, are cut fresh daily.
