California-born Habit Burger Grill opens fifth South Florida location


 The Habit Burger Grill

5560 N. Military Trail, Boca Raton, 561-241-8466,

The fifth South Florida outpost of this fast-casual national chain, founded in California in 1969, has opened in the new Park Place.

“This particular center is strategically and conveniently located for both the surrounding residential community and the daytime business crowd,” says Tony Warren, Florida market partner. “There are a lot of great opportunities for growth for our brand in Palm Beach County. This county provides both a strong and growing workforce and residential community.”

Six renditions of the signature Charburger ($3.35-$6) include BBQ Bacon Char, Teriyaki Char with grilled pineapple and the double-patty Santa Barbara with cheese and avocado on grilled sourdough.

Other char-grilled sandwiches ($4.95-$7.25) include veggie and sushi-grade, line-caught albacore tuna flown in from Fiji. Seven salads ($3.95-$7.99) include barbecue chicken, Santa Barbara Cobb and grilled chicken Caesar.

Trans-fat-free french fries, onion rings and sweet-potato fries ($2-$2.75) are cooked in soybean oil. A condiment bar includes multiple peppers, and ranch dressing is made in-house.

Lunch and dinner are served daily amid polished stone, hardwood accents, surfing paintings and a 1969 photo of the original location in Santa Barbara. Red umbrellas dot the covered front patio.
