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.

hand-filleted marinated grilled tri-tip, and sides including onion rings, sweet potato and French
fries, and tempura green beans. Guests can choose from a variety of peppers, lemons, limes,
and sauces at a complimentary condiment bar to customize the flavor of their meal.
