What's up with the name? Are you a farm to table restaurant?
Our name reflects much of what we serve. Farm is for the grass fed and finished beef we source for our beef burgers. Fries is for the in house cut and twice fried potatoes and sweet potatoes we serve with ridiculously good dipping sauces.
We’re not a pure farm to table operation, but we do work hard to source local when we can, and we ALWAYS strive to use the cleanest ingredients available. We use REAL mayo for many of our sauce bases, and even our condiments feature Simply Heinz ketchup. Choices like these are more expensive to source, but we want to serve you what we’d serve our own family.
Are you a franchise?
Not yet! We’re just focused on being the best local restaurant in the area right now.
ARE THE “GRASS FED” BURGERS AT RESTAURANT X ANY GOOD?
Ha! We don’t know, but we can educate you and arm you with some information. There has been quite a LOT of food labeling controversy about this. It seems some folks want to call beef for which cows get moved from pasture grasses to grain, even as a voluntary source, to quickly fatten the cows up, “grass fed.” The best thing you can do is to ask your butcher, chef, server, counter person, etc. whether their “grass fed beef” is also grass finished. Farm & Fries’ beef is grass fed and grass finished.
Dang...now you have me thinking about what I'm eating. What else can you tell me?
Our beef is also fresh, not frozen, and from farms in the USA where cows graze openly on pastures. The farmers that raise these cows do not add non-therapeutic hormones or antibiotics. They also utilize Temple Grandin standards for humane treatment.
We constantly strive to bring you similar ethical proteins else we decide to put on a burger!
What do you cook your fries in? I have allergies.
We use clean and natural peanut oil for most of our frying. We realize some of you have peanut allergy sufferers in your family and are sorry you are not able to enjoy our restaurant. We’ve tried numerous cooking oils, and peanut oil simply tasted the best in our opinion. It costs us more, but we feel it’s the right thing to do. Trust us, there are quite a few “franken-oils” in use out there.
