Farmer Boys is a fast food restaurant in California and Nevada but most of it’s outlet is found in the Inland Empire (San Bernardino and Riverside county) region of Southern California. I went to their Irwindale California location to try them.
DECOR:The decor motif is country with whimsical decor pieces. Furniture is mostly oak.
FOOD: They have breakfast plates and breakfast on the run which are served all day, hamburgers, sandwiches, salads & wraps, and sides. They have fish plates, soup & chili bowls, flamed broiled chicken sandwiches, shakes and fountain drinks and desserts. The sides are onion rings, chili cheese fries and crispy zucchini.
For comparison with other fast food restaurants, I tried the Farmer’s Burger. It has 1/2 lb of flamed-broiled burger patty topped with double cheese, hickory smoked bacon and fresh avocado and greens. The burger tasted good and not greasy like other hamburgers. The greens are fresh and crispy and the flamed-broiled burger patty makes them stand-up above the crowed.
For the side, I ordered the crispy zucchini which is heavenly. It is a battered wedges of zucchini and deep fried. I ordered the real strawberry shake. The shake needs more strawberry otherwise it is passable.
CLEANLINESS: The Irwindale outlet have a letter grade of “A” from the state of California. Their men’s restroom has paper towels soap and warm water although the restroom may need some extra scrubbing. The tile grouts are dark.
STAFF: The staff are friendly and quick. Orders are taken at the counter and your food is delivered to your table. I had my food after about ten minutes.
Overall, this fast food restaurant is worth going back to. Food is fresh and tasty with a lot of selection, and staff are friendly.
Next time, I will try their breakfast items and maybe their soups. They claim each egg is cracked by hand to make their farm fresh 3-Egg Breakfasts and Omelets. I will also try their onion rings. They claim it requires 21 steps to achieve their great onion rings which includes hand cutting the onions, hand dipping in batter with 2 different kinds of batter.
