SOLANA BEACH, Calif., May 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The Habit Burger Grill, a California-based restaurant brand, announced today the opening of its third San Diego area restaurant in Solana Beach on Wednesday, May 30 located at 909 Lomas Santa Fe Drive just East of the 5 freeway.  With two existing restaurants in Mission Valley and Carmel Mountain, and over 50 locations across California and Arizona, The Habit continues its expansion in its home state with this new restaurant in Solana Beach.


Eager local area residents can get a sneak peek of the tasty menu during their charity tie-in events on Sunday, May 27th, and Monday, the 28th (Memorial Day). On Sunday, The Habit will be open for lunch (from 12-2p.m.) and dinner (from 5-7p.m.) and on Monday the 28th will be open for lunch (12-2p.m.) and will donate 100% of all proceeds on those days to the local Boys & Girls Club, Aquatic Department, Duchenne San Diego and Share Our Strength (respectively).

Compared to other "fast casual" or other "gourmet burger" establishments, The Habit Burger offers high quality and great service at reasonable prices ($2.95 for an original 'Charburger'). The Habit also serves freshly grilled sandwiches, specialty salads tossed to order, onion rings, sweet potato fries and a variety of hand-blended shakes and malts.

"We are thrilled to open our newest restaurant in Solana Beach. With this great location in this strong community and many families located nearby, we are optimistic that our Solana Beach location will be yet another 'Habit' worth repeating," says Russ Bendel, President and CEO of Habit Restaurants, LLC. "We are also thrilled to be expanding further in San Diego County, where we hope to continue our growth."

The Habit is best known for their made-to-order "Charburgers," starting at just $2.95 and grilled over an open flame and their friendly, inviting service. They use only fresh, quality ingredients, and always live up to their motto: "There's No Substitute For Quality!"

About The Habit Burger Grill
Over 40 years ago, The Habit opened in Santa Barbara, California.  Soon after, 16-year old Brent Reichard got his first job flipping burgers there and a few years later he and his brother Bruce made the life-changing decision to buy it.  Through hard work and dedication The Habit has grown a lot since then, but remains focused on one simple philosophy – always deliver high quality food and great service at reasonable prices.
