IRVINE, CALIF. — California-based The Habit Burger Grill is coming to Clemmons. The company plans to open its second North Carolina restaurant in Clemmons on Aug. 14, bringing its chargrilled burgers, handcrafted sandwiches and fresh-cut salads to Forsyth County.

To celebrate The Habit’s opening day in Clemmons, the first 50 people in line at 10:30 a.m. on Aug. 14 will receive free Charburgers with cheese for a year.

“Coast to coast, Americans are loving the taste of The Habit, and we couldn’t be more excited to open in Clemmons. We look forward to introducing the community to The Habit hospitality and our flame-grilled Charburgers,” said Iwona Alter, chief brand officer at The Habit.

The new drive-thru restaurant is located at 3125 Gammon Lane, on the southwest corner of South Peace Haven Road and Lewisville-Clemmons Road. The new location, which seats more than 70 people in the dining room with room for 15 more on the patio, will be open seven days a week from 10:30 a.m.-10 p.m. with the drive-thru remaining open until 11 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.

Pre-opening events will include fundraisers with 100% of the proceeds going back to local organizations, including:

  • Sunday, Aug. 11, 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m., supporting the Jerry Long Family YMCA
  • Sunday, Aug.11, 5-7 p.m., supporting the Clemmons Food Pantry

Members of The Habit’s CharClub will also be invited to various pre-opening VIP events. To receive and invitation and stay in the know, guests can visit to sign up.

Celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, The Habit was recently named Best Regional Fast Food in the USA Today 10Best Reader’s Choice Awards. Earlier this year, Thrillist called out The Habit as the top underrated burger chain that should be in every state.

At the center of The Habit’s menu is the signature Charburger, made with 100% fresh, never frozen ground beef, grilled over an open flame, and topped with cheese, caramelized onions, pickles, fresh tomato slices, crisp lettuce and mayo served on a toasted bun.

The Habit’s menu also includes fresh salads, handcrafted sandwiches including chargrilled line-caught, sushi-grade ahi tuna, fresh chicken, and hand-filleted marinated sirloin steak, 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.
