Farren's is one of our favorite hidden gems. The restaurant is hidden in an alley and is located in a basement. The kitchen is open to the restaurant and is the size of a large closet. Everything is cooked on the flat top. It's quite a unique place.
The burgers are ridiculously good. The one to the right is called "The Motherlode" It is an all-beef burger topped with sauteed mushrooms, blue cheese sauce, Swiss cheese, onion and lettuce. It was delicious.
We've also sampled quite a few other burgers - The Green Chili Burger, The Kobe Burger, and the The Spicoli. We don't have anything bad to say about any of them. Keep in mind, however, that the Green Chili Burger packs a punch of heat, so if you don't like spicy food, that's probably not the burger for you.
The fries, oh my, the fries. They are delicious and greasy and perfect with the burgers. We've never tried any of the other sides, just get the fries.
Farren's also has seasonal craft beers on tap. There's always a good selection, so you should be able to find something that you'll enjoy.
Now, we realize that none of the items on the menu fit into our goal of eating healthy. Sometimes you have to cheat and eat a greasy burger and fries. If you're ready for a cheat day, we recommend choosing Farren's Pub and Eatery.
