A VERY Serviceable 1/3 Pound Bacon/Avocado/Angus/Cheese/Burger

Sold in combo with a generous portion of good fries and an unlimited refill soft drink, about 8 bucks. The default on doneness of the burger seemed to be medium, which was just right. Order and pay at the counter and they will bring your food to your table in a jiffy. Home-y, kitschy ambiance and no little screaming kids running around.

Farmer Boys, Foothill, one door east of the KFC at Mountain, Upland.

        Servorg guessed the secret word, sorry guys.

            You should definitely win a burger with ChinoWayne! :)

              Servorg is welome to collect on that burger anytime, but I don't think his bicycle travels east of Sepulveda Boulevard.

              1. re: ChinoWayne

                It'll go a little bit east, but you are EAST! I do like the breakfast burrito at the downtown LA location, and they have the added benefit of being a 24/7 operation.

    1. Whose burger is it??! Inquiring minds need to know.... Don't just tease us.

      1. I've heard of mystery meat. Mystery restaurants is a new one.

          1. re: JAB

            Yes, but it's a specific recommendation for a specific item in LA County, and thus germane to our local board. Burger discussion threads here frequently cite In-N-Out, too, and Top's. If ChinoWayne says this is a good burger I'm inclined to believe it and thank him for the info (THANKS!!).

              Let's not lose all sense of perspective here! ;-D> (And for anyone in doubt...I'm KIDDING!)

                :-) Most definitely, Will. The only time I have gone to FB was a couple of months ago. A friend had said that they served biscuits and gravy. It was a HUGE order and I could barely eat 1/4 of (probably since I stupidly ordered a chili cheese dog with it). I liked it (don't laugh, but I like to eat my B&G with pickle relish - it is the closest I have been able to come to mimicking the relish-stuff that Lola (a lady I used to rent a room from when I was 18) made and served with hers). She was from Idaho - wonder if it is an Idaho thang. I had the rest for breakfast.

                1. re: Will Owen

                  Technically, given that it's in Upland it's San Bernadino county not LA county, but I appreciate the tip as it's not far from me.

                  1. re: Robert Thornton

                    Wayne might have gotten his in SBC, but (assuming some appreciable degree of similarity between one outlet and the others) I'm taking it for granted that one need not go to that particular FB to have essentially that same burger. I'm guessing that WildSwede didn't get her biscuits and gravy at that one either, but most likely the one I'd go to, just off the 210 between Duarte and Irwindale.

                    1. re: Will Owen

                      I went to the one you mentioned, Will: on Irwindale off the 210.

                      1. re: WildSwede

                        Figured. The others are all miles and miles for both of us. I've just been by there a lot and never stopped in, but I think that B&G is tempting me, probably more than the burger.

                        1. re: Will Owen

                          The gravy is the white gloopy kind with pieces of sausage in it. ;-)

                          1. re: WildSwede

                            The kind I make, only I'm sure the gravy part is from a mix. That's okay; I've used a few of those and some are good, as long as you don't mind blinding white. I think the last I had out was at the Swing Inn in Temecula, with their CFS.
