Max’s Restaurant

After browsing in the Axxess Book for a new spot to try, Justin and I decided to visit Max’s on Upper State Street for a late breakfast / lunch.  Max’s is definitely a favorite spot for some of SB’s older residents.  In the 75% filled dining area, all but ourselves were over the age of 60 it appeared.  I have no problem with this and once I opened the menu my attention went straight to the food.  After opening the breakfast menu to the first page, I knew I was in a breakfast mood and would order something off that menu rather than the lunch one.  The breakfast menu was incredibly substantial as they offered 15 or so omelets along with any other traditional breakfast plate you could think up.  I decided to try the Max’s Quesadilla, which came with eggs, onions, bacon and cheese inside a whole wheat tortilla.  It came topped with sour cream and salsa with a side of potatoes and beans.  After a bit of a wait for our food, it all came out perfectly and tasted great.  The Quesadilla filled me up and had great flavor. We were able to use the Axxess card to receive 2 for 1 pricing and will definitely be back to use the 10% discount thereafter.

The Habit Burger Grill – La Cumbre

The Habit Burger happens to be one of the most successful, Santa Barbara born restaurant chains and also one of my favorite places to grab a quick burger.  We decided to visit the La Cumbre location because it has the most inside seating and happens to be their newest.  We lucked out upon arrival and came in with no line and quickly put in our order, finding a nice booth immediately.  Not to mention the FourSquare badge (see below) for the check-in!  The order happens to be pretty standard for me although it can definitely vary depending on the time of the day and the extent of my appetitie.  Tonight I was hungry… Going for the malt!  The order is as follow:

– BBQ Bacon Charburger ($3.85) add Cheese ($0.50) and avocado ($1.00) … This beast of a burger happens to be one of my favorites and due to my appetite on this particular night I decided to add avocado (what doesn’t it make better?).  The grilled onions are also a must for any of the burgers or sandwiches.  As always the burger came out delicious and was the first item to dissapear of my plate.  On to the onion rings and fries…

-Onion Rings ($1.95) & Fries ($1.80) … In my opinion the onion rings at Habit are far superior than the fries.  The fries come out a little soggy for my liking while the onion rings are nice and crispy!  You have to ask for ranch (so don’t forget) and I know Allison’s meal isn’t complete without it!

-Chocolate Malt ($2.95) & Chocolate Milkshake ($2.85) …  Both of these drinks make for a great dessert and can even be enjoyed during the meal.  The malt is usually my choice because of the malty taste it brings.  I tend to like bigger chunks but oeverall both are usually enough to bring a nice end to the meal.

Baskin Robbins

Since I showed so much restraint during dinner by ordering a salad, we decided to splurge for desert and headed over to Baskin Robbins on Upper State Street. With a place like Baskin Robbins you pretty much know what your gonna get both service and food wise. Per usual we each tried three different flavors after which I decided on a single scoop of Cake Frosting inside of a sugar cone. We were able to use our Axxess card for the second time in one night as we received another single scoop for free (one time offer). Allison decided to go with the “classic” Pralines & Cream in a sugar cone. The young girl working was plenty cordial and a good sport about our trying different flavors (as she should be). The store was clean inside and our trip was overall a good experience.
