The Habit Burger Grill Introduces New Garlic Herb Fries, Just in Time for National Garlic Month

(Irvine, CA) March 21, 2019 – The Habit Burger Grill (Nasdaq:HABT), the Irvine, CA-based restaurant company renowned for its award-winning Charburgers, is adding a bold new level of flavor to one of its most popular side dishes. The Habit today introduces Garlic Herb Fries, available starting March 20 and just in time for National Garlic Month.

“Fans know The Habit is the destination for bold flavors and these new Garlic Herb Fries deliver a delectable addition to our sides offering,” says chef Adam Baird, The Habit’s vice president of food and beverage. “Our house-made buttermilk garlic herb sauce adds the right touch of garlic and richness to make these fries the perfect complement for our Charburgers and especially our new Italian Chicken Ciabatta Sandwich.”

This new side starts with The Habit’s hot and fresh fries which are sprinkled with garlic seasoning and smothered with a creamy, savory house-made buttermilk garlic herb sauce.

“We think garlic lovers won’t be able to get enough of our new fries, and they are the perfect way to celebrate National Garlic Month,” added Baird,

The new Garlic Herb Fries join The Habit’s popular sides including regular fries, sweet potato fries, onion rings, tempura green beans and hand-cut small salads.

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.
