Fan-Favorite Guacamole Crunch Charburger is Back at The Habit Burger Grill

-Limited-Time Charburger Pairs Perfectly with New OREO® Cookie Shake –
(IRVINE, CA) May 01, 2019 – For a limited time beginning May 1, The Habit Restaurants, Inc. (Nasdaq: HABT) is bringing back the Guacamole Crunch Charburger jam-packed with unique layers of flavor and the perfect crunch to match. The fan-favorite returns just in time for National Burger Month and National Burger Day on May 28, 2019.
The Guacamole Crunch Charburger ($4.99) heightens the flavor of the already juicy, award-winning Charburger by topping it with a crisp tostada shell, fresh house-made guacamole pico de gallo, melted cheese, and a zesty ancho chili lime crema made in-house. The new, south-of-the-border inspired Charburger is served on a toasted sesame seed bun with crisp, shredded lettuce, tomato and pickles. Like all Charburgers at The Habit, the Guacamole Crunch Charburger is always made-to-order and chargrilled over an open flame.

“This Guacamole Crunch Charburger was an instant hit last year. Its authentic flavors, bold taste, and crisp texture from a crunchy tostada shell addition gives this Charburger layers of flavor that our fans can only get at The Habit,” said Adam Baird, executive chef at The Habit Burger Grill.

Because every great burger needs a delicious shake, The Habit Burger Grill is also introducing a new OREO® Cookie Shake that’s blended with OREO® cookie pieces and topped with whipped cream, available for a limited time only.
