The restaurant opened in April 2000 and, at that time, the Los Angeles-Downtown location was the 14th Farmer Boys eatery of what is now a chain of 100 locations throughout California, Nevada and Arizona.
The Southern California-based, fast-casual concept opened its first location in 1981. This year, the chain is celebrating 40 years of “Farm Fresh.”
“We have a team who is committed to quality,” said Daisy Alvarez, senior director of marketing for Farmer Boys.
“Our team members, franchisees and local purveyors are inspired by what the farm gives us, what’s fresh and what’s irresistible. Everyone in the Farmer Boys family is committed to making great friends of our customers and creating community connections using the power of food.”
Farmer Boys has set the standard for serving high-quality, farm-fresh food in a fast-casual setting. The menu consists of award-winning burgers; cooked-to-order, all-day breakfast; hand-chopped salads; specialty sandwiches and more, all prepared with quality ingredients that are locally sourced whenever possible.
Produce is delivered fresh and whole to each restaurant every morning. Instead of sitting in a warehouse for weeks, the produce can be enjoyed at the pinnacle of crispness and flavor. By going the extra mile for delicious, flavorful food, guests can count on fresh, cooked-to-order meals every visit.
Farmer Boys’ mantra is “Nobody does it fresher.” Farm-fresh food doesn’t just taste better; it feels better. Guests know the difference between vegetables served right off the farm and fast food processed from a factory. After a meal, guests are not ready to take a nap; they’re recharged to get to work. That’s the difference between fast food and farm-fresh food.
She said the restaurant’s signature dish is the Farmer’s Burger.
“It is special because of the farm-fresh topping and high-quality beef. Avocados, tomatoes, lettuce and onions arrive whole to each Farmer Boys and are hand-cut daily. Fresh ground beef is grilled to order over an open flame and topped with bacon, cheese and a sesame seed bun. Great food comes from fresh produce and hard work.”
Farmer Boys invites foodies to visit the Los Angeles-Downtown location and take advantage of the coupon offers in LA Downtown News. Enjoy award-winning burgers, summer salads, all-day breakfast or one of the new Farmer Boys fried chicken sandwiches.
The fried chicken sandwiches are made with an all-natural chicken breast, double dipped in a batter seasoned with paprika, garlic and onion, then fried to lock in the flavor and ensure maximum crispiness. In addition to a crisp, flavorful chicken breast, the classic includes mayonnaise and pickles on a brioche bun. The fiery fried chicken sandwich includes a house-made Fiery Farmer’s Sauce on a brioche bun to elevate the heat and add a kick. It’s delicious.
