One more way to feed our insatiable burger habit is the new Habit Burger (1801 S. Federal Hwy., 561/265-0934), which opens next Wednesday in the Delray Place shopping center just off Linton Boulevard.

The Delray Habit is the first East Coast/South Florida location for the California-based chain, which operates 115 burger joints in four western states. It’s part of an ambitious expansion plan said to add several more Habits in South, Central and West Coast Florida cities in the coming year.

Following in the footsteps of other “fast casual” eateries like Chipotle, Habit touts its fresh, high-quality foods prepared on-premises, from never-frozen burgers grilled over an open flame to fresh-made salads and dressings to trans-fat-free fries and onion rings.

In addition to several styles of “Charburgers,” from teriyaki to avocado and cheese, there are also sammies made with house-marinated chicken and tri-tip, plus line-caught tuna, along with side and entree-sized salads. Habits also feature a complimentary condiment bar where diners can jazz up their burgers and sandwiches.
