Mira Mesa has seen the rise of many new eateries in the past couple of years, the newest being The Habit Burger Grill that is currently in construction on the Mira Mesa Blvd. and Camino Ruiz intersection. The Habit has been quite the buzz lately, as this new establishment will be across the street from MMHS, thus giving students a new place to eat at after school. While Mira Mesa’s location isn’t complete yet, we can know what to expect based on other Habit establishments like the one in Balboa Mesa Shopping Center.

Upon walking in, it’s noticeable that the aesthetic is very modern, being sleek yet welcoming. With music playing over speakers and pictures of surfers and beaches on the walls, the place gives off a unique vibe. The Habit is known for their “Charburger,” described on the menu as a burger containing “a fresh ground beef patty with mayonnaise, pickle, fresh tomato, lettuce, and caramelized onions on a toasted bun.” For about $4.00, you can order a Charburger meal, which includes fries and a medium soft drink for an additional $4.00. For a vegetarian option, you can order the veggie burger, which is around the same price as the Charburger.

While the fries and soda selection are nothing noteworthy, the same cannot be said for the Charburger. The vegetables were fresh, accompanied by the cheese and the meat working together to bring out a wholesome, hearty taste with each bite. Working your way into the burger, the savory taste takes root and leaves you wanting more. While the veggie burger isn’t nearly as flavorful as the charburger, it’s a decent option for vegetarians seeking a filling meal. The vegetables are still fresh-tasting, but the bland bun and patty really dull the taste down.

While being pricier than other burger establishments, The Habit offers wholesome signature burgers at a reasonable price. With chill atmosphere, affordable pricing, and proximity to the school campus, it has all the makings of being the next big thing for Marauders seeking something to eat when the school day is over. Keep an eye out for when this burger joint opens. You’re not going to want to skip out on this one!
