The Habit vs. In'N'Out
The Habit is now open in Torrance, right on the NW corner of Torrance and Hawthorne. A guy that sits by me at work snuck out and has it, without offering any to me. My vengence will be served soon.
Anyhow, there's a lot of talk that this place is better than In'N'Out. While i refuse to believe this, I'm going to at least try it before sayig for certain. Going to lunch today for it, after having a Double Double last night at 11pm.
Anyone else go there yet? Any other people think it's better than In'N'Out?
I haven't tried The Habit, but The Counter is excellent
Just had the habit for lunch at the Torrance location....very tasty, but In'N'Out still wins, although not by too much.
To me, they are 2 entirely different burgers. I love both. It just depends on which I am in the mood for.
Oooh, I used to go to the one on National Blvd. when I was a kid. I didn't know they were expanding. I'll have to check out the Torrance location, it's not far from home.

Never been there. As much as I'm an In N Out fiend (trust me, I'll behead anyone that talks crap about In N Out), you can't compare it to a restaurant. It's apples and oranges. It's like comparing Arby's to a real steak house.
So after exacting my revenge, I had a chance to go, and i must say, the burgers are great.
One of the biggest factors with which I was concerned was cheese paper. I didn't think they'd have much, but the cheese paper was of ample supply and quality.
OK to Cute girls at the counter when I was there, nothing to write home about (but something to write here I guess, one of them had amazing, almost transparent blue eyes).
The burger itself, as someone pointed out, is different, but still good. My friend compared it to a hybrid of a BigMac and an Island's burger. I'd say that's a fair assessment.
It is a bit more expensive than In'N'Out, I spent $8.77 on the equivilant of a Double Double meal, though to be fair, I did add bacon ($.75). Also, it lacked the secret sauce I so love (It's all about extra spread, people) at In'N'Out.
And that's the difference to me. Because I can get extra spread on the burger, or even request packets of that oh-so-fattening Heaven, I'm giving this one to In'N'Out. Habit is good, just doesn't quite cut it, though, again, it is still very good.
And I'll probably go there more since I work about 1/3 of a mile away.
