A friend who had graduated from the University of Illinois many years ago came back to town and was surprised to see how much it had changed. "Where can I get the best burger?" he asked. That was easy. My sweetheart and I took him to Farren's and he couldn't have been happier. Well, maybe a bit happier when I picked up the check. I'm particularly fond of the bacon burger, but there is much to choose from. Staff is speedy and friendly and the location is close to the Art Theatre, the Virginia Theatre, and the bars of downtown Champaign.
