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.

When we aren't sure what we want to eat, Farmer Boys is often our default. There's such a variety, you will always find something you like! No frills, order at the counter, tho they bring you the food. Always good, friendly service. At the Loma Linda location recently, we were eating outside because of our dog, and the server brought...

Took a chance on a walk through downtown riverside, the staff was extremely friendly, polite to the extreme. The establishment was very clean, service was quick, AND THE FOOD WAS AWESOME!!! Large selection to choose from, you get two sides with each combo, the deep fried squash was delicious, perfectly cooked, a light coating of breading and firm but tender... More

If I could choose less than one star, I surely would. A month ago, I sent and email to the 'corporate' office indicating my frustration with the location at Iowa and Massachusetts in Riverside. I had been stopping in there regularly on Wednesday evenings after class. I always arrived between 9:45 and 9:50, at which time I ordered a salad.... More

I ate at the Ceres Ca restaurant, The person taking the order seemed to have attitude. The $8 hamburger (hamburger only) had no flavor. Very disappointing, not a bell ringer for sure and last time for me and farmer boys!

Burgers are great here. Onions rings need a lot of salt. You can also get grilled cheese sandwiches and even breakfast. If you are in a hurry you can order on line and pick you meal up at the drive up window.

Straddling the Riverside-Moreno Valley border yet close to Interstate 215, this Farmer Boys reflects their industrial area and freeway-dependent store concept. Some may discern that the restaurant decor and attitude of staff is often subtly different depending on such a location. There are few residential neighborhoods in this vicinity. A blue-collar, military or freeway clientele can be expected, but that... More
