This Miami spot (99th & Flagler) is the 2nd location for The Habit Burger Grill in Florida with Delray Beach being the first. I drove up to Delray Beach one morning to eat there and didn’t think much of it. I like to give restaurants multiple opportunities as there will be days when even the most well run machine will have an off day, to think otherwise is ridiculous.
The official opening date for the Miami location is this coming Tuesday September 29th. They have been opening the last few days for some hours here and there where all the proceeds benefit a local charity or school. This afternoon, the Red Cross was the beneficiary of my food purchases.
The Burgers at Habit are char-grilled hence the name “CharBurger(s)”.
I start with a meal of a Double CharBurger w/Cheese, Caramelized Onions and Mayo. I skip the Lettuce, Tomato and Pickles…please remember I don’t eat filler. You can go ahead and order it with everything, I don’t judge. I complete the meal with these really crispy Onion Rings and a fountain Coke.
As I’m having the order read back to me I decide to tack on a BBQ Bacon CharBurger. I gotta see how the other half lives with BBQ Sauce on their Burger.
I pay, fill my cup with the ice cold goodness and take a seat with my buzzer. A few minutes later my buzzer lets me know it’s game time. I grab a couple of napkins and some Jalapeños at their peppers bar which I think might come in handy later.
I fill my hand with the Double CharBurger and go in for a killer bite. It’s way better than I remember it from the first time. I can taste the seasoning, the light char flavor and the gooey melted Cheese. The Onions and Mayo come in on the second round of flavor notifications to my mouth. I put this fella down and head to the Bacon BBQ CharBurger next.
Alright, not true. I eat three or four Onion Rings dipped in Ranch in between the tastings. These guys are good.
Back to my story before I interrupted myself. I’ve never had a BBQ Burger with Mayo on it but it works. It’s missing something though………let’s say it together……JALAPEÑOS!!! It’s a pretty little ditty with the Jalapeños added.
I’m thinking I gotta bring something back to my wife Marcela who is at our HQ hard at work. The Santa Barbara CharBurger (Double Char with Cheese & Avocado on Grilled Sourdough) seems right up her alley. And it was.
There you have it, it’s gonna be tough for me to decide from now on with PDQ in the same strip mall with The Habit Burger Grill. Or I’m gonna have to come real hungry.
