Farmer Boys, the Southern California-based fast-casual restaurant specializing in burgers and made-from-scratch breakfast that is served all day, recently opened their first Modesto location at 1701 Prescott Road.

Farmer Boys, which started over three decades ago, offers an expansive menu of dishes cooked-to-order and prepared with quality ingredients that are locally sourced whenever possible. Favorites include the award-winning Farmer’s Burger, the hearty Farmer’s Chopped Cobb Salad, and scratch-made French Toast.

“I’ve always wanted to open a Farmer Boys restaurant,” says Rafael Armenta Jr., who co-operates the Modesto location with his uncle Rene Armenta. “Farmer Boys’ fresh take on fast-casual, with an emphasis on high-quality ingredients, really resonates with me, and I was thrilled to finally have the opportunity to bring it to the Modesto community.”

Farmer Boys has built their reputation on offering an expansive menu, comfortable restaurant atmosphere, drive-thru, and friendly staff. The Modesto location is open from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. daily and offers dine-in, with seats for nearly 100, take out, and phone order service. For more information call 209-408–0735 or visit www.farmerboys.com.

Founded in 1981 and headquartered in Riverside, California, Farmer Boys also looks to partner with non-profits in the community, especially their partnership with the Loma Linda University Children’s Hospital. The restaurant chain was recently named a Champion of Children for contributing more than $655,000 to date.

“Every year, we sponsor an in-store fundraiser rewarding our guests who make a contribution to Loma Linda University Children’s Hospital. The generous donations go to maintaining the only dedicated children’s hospital in the San Bernardino, Riverside, Inyo and Mono counties,” read a statement from the restaurant.

“For over 30 years, Farmer Boys has been a successful, growing business thanks to the support of the communities we serve. Our annual fundraiser allows us to give back by supporting this region’s only dedicated children’s hospital.”
