There’s fast food and there’s farm fresh food.
Farmer Boys was founded in 1981 by five brothers raised on a farm. Farm-to-table may be all the buzz now, but they’ve been cooking from scratch and serving the freshest ingredients since the beginning. It’s country-American-style food in an inviting atmosphere. There’s no surprise that Farmer Boys has such a loyal customer base. The delicious food and unmatched customer service make you feel right at home. Bakersfield has three locations from which to choose, with a fourth location scheduled to begin construction later this year.
The Farmer’s Burger ($7.49):
It takes two hands and a firm grip to grab this stacked burger. The Farmer’s Burger is made with two flame-grilled beef patties, two slices of American cheese, hand-smashed avocado, three slices of thick bacon, Thousand Island dressing and crisp produce between a sesame seed bun. It’s quite a burger and very flavorful. I can see why this is one of their most popular menu items. Make this one a meal and add on onion rings, zucchini sticks or fries and a drink for just $4 more.
Farmer’s Chopped Cobb Salad ($9.19):
This is one salad that will not leave you hungry. It comes with all-natural chicken breast, chopped hickory- smoked bacon, tomato, diced Hass avocado, a hard-boiled egg, and California cheddar cheese on a fresh bed of lettuce. I had a variety of dressings from which to choose, and I found the honey Dijon to go quite well with the combination of flavors. You can go on the light side with this one by dialing back the portion when ordering or get it to go in a wrap. Another great option: All locations in Bakersfield have drive-thrus to make life easier.
Not only does Farmer Boys serve up great burgers, sandwiches and salads, but also an expansive breakfast menu served all day! Popular morning items include breakfast burritos and the French toast combo. Also, if you’re having a business luncheon or family get-together, they offer party platters. Give them a try; it’s good food, great-sized portions and solid value for the money. ￼
