The Roasted Garlic Portabella Double Charburger is served on toasted garlic herb sourdough bread spread with roasted garlic sauce.

“The Roasted Garlic Portabella Double Charburger is an amazing combination of bold, umami flavors,” said chef Adam Baird, The Habit’s vice president of food & beverage and creator of the new Charburger. “There is a rich, earthiness and great texture from the roasted portabella mushrooms that blends so well with the roasted garlic and our chargrilled beef. The portabella, and the toasted garlic sourdough, are what enhance our signature Charburger here.”
