The atmosphere is not too bad for a basement location with no windows. The staff are all very friendly and service is good. The menu is pretty decent, but the food is just okay. I was really looking forward to a better experience based on...More

Everyone knows Farren’s for its burgers but don’t overlook their salads. Hearty and full of flavor. My favorites are the steak & blue or the scallop.

Farren's has been a long time Champaign favorite. Good burgers and nice salads but nothing innovative. It is kind of dark and dingy and they will not seat you unless everyone is there. Recently went with a group of guys and 5 out of 6...More

Farren's has been here for a while and consistently puts out great food. Nothing fancy, but you won't find better french fries and burgers anywhere. Their chicken sandwiches are to die for. Can't go wrong with anything on their menu.

Got a burger and a salad. Food is very good. I asked for a check, dessert to go, and a box. Then waited over 15 minutes for my server to stop hitting on a customer that came in after asking for the check. It wasn't...More

LOVE this place! You have got to try the Motherlode or the Russel. Best Bleu cheese sauce I've ever had! Also, the homemade truffle chips are fabulous! Everything is good, but those are the BEST!

I ordered the Warren burger since I read raving reviews of it, it lives up to the hype! I noticed a lot of people had “doggie bags” as they left and I think I know why; first the burger is huge, second you’ll want to...More
