Is this burger habit-forming, or is it just a Habit Burger?
@BuildingPHX tweeted about the new Habit Burger at McDowell and Seventh Avenue just as I was trying to find something adventurous to do today. Adventures in Phoenix are harder to come by in June than in March, as in summer our outdoors becomes so hot it is possible to get burns from touching metal door handles.
