The Habit Burger Grill Brings Bold Flavor With New Southwest BBQ Chicken Salad

(Irvine, CA) January 23, 2019 – Beginning January 23, The Habit Burger Grill (Nasdaq:HABT), the Irvine based restaurant company renowned for its award-winning Charburgers, introduces a new flavor-filled salad, the Southwest BBQ Chicken Salad, as a permanent addition to their menu.

The Habit’s new Southwest BBQ Chicken Salad serves up a perfectly seasoned chargrilled chicken breast atop a bed of hand-cut fresh garden greens with fire-roasted corn, pickled red onions, diced tomatoes, hickory-smoked bacon, and crumbled feta cheese, all tossed in a cilantro lime ranch dressing and topped with a smoky ancho chili BBQ sauce, both made in-house.

“In the new year, we strive to craft delicious entrees that will be sure to satisfy all of our fans’ cravings. Our new Southwest BBQ Chicken Salad is made with a mix of bold, fresh flavors, that pack quality taste in every bite,” says chef Adam Baird, The Habit’s vice president of food and beverage. “The combination of our house-made cilantro lime ranch dressing, with our zesty ancho chili BBQ sauce, takes our chargrilled chicken salad to the next level and will make a great addition to our menu.”

Better burgers are just the beginning at The Habit where the menu also includes hand-cut salads, grilled sandwiches including line-caught, sushi grade ahi tuna, fresh chicken, and 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.

The Habit is known for its award-winning Charburger which features 100% fresh, never frozen ground beef grilled over an open flame and topped with melted cheese, caramelized onions, pickles, fresh tomato, crisp lettuce, and mayo served on a toasted bun. Their restaurants have been serving the Best Tasting Burger in America exactly this way since the first Habit opened in 1969.
