I stopped in at this place based on a recommendation. The burger was good, juicy and of a fair size, definitely better than your regular fast food place. I was disappointed with the fries as they were soft and soggy.

Stopped by for quick breakfast and coffee. The coffee was hot and the food better than average. The place was clean and comfortable and the staff friendly. They have their own parking lot.

We ordered a turkey melt and patty melt sandwich with a order of onion rings and Dr. Pepper to drink. The food tasted good and the service was excellent. The atmosphere was pleasant and the restaurant was clean. The price was reasonable for what you get.

We had early breakfast. Servings were very substantial so we split a plate. More than anything, the staff was so friendly, helpful and polite. That made such an impression on us! I have been here for other meals and always found the selection and quality of food to be excellent.

Great place for quick and good food. Breakfast, lunch etc. I go for breakfast about once a month. Great price on eggs (3), hash browns, bacon etc. If you like 'bowls' then the Chicken-fried and gravy is goodness. Good sized servings - never a disappointment. For burgers and such and a quick lunch Farmer Boys is great. A huge selection... More

The staff in this restaurant are awesome! The prices are very good. The food could use a little work though! I had the farmer omelet and hash browns. All the ingredients are there...but the food didn't have any flavor. Pull out some spices!

Great location right off the freeway. The food was good. We had burgers and a chicken sandwich. Kids rated it above fast food and really enjoyed it. My Dd says "Yum". My husband didn't like the slightly green tomatoes and said it was too big and sloppy to hold. I liked that the chicken sandwich used an actual breast not... More

Typically I don't do many burger joint reviews. But, I've had the opportunity to stop at the Farmer Boys on Van Buren Ave, in Woodcrest, CA (Riverside) recently. Over the years I've probably stopped there 14 times or more. When measured against 'big chain' spots it seems to rise a bit above the typical. Great menu to choose from, breakfast,... More

Half our food was breakfast and the other half was lunch. The breakfast food was okay. The french toast was the best. The burgers and the club sandwich were pretty good. The bread they use is awesome. It's a tad bit pricey for what you get, but I would go back again. Customer service was pretty good too.
