In past years, Eric and I often stopped at Farmer Boys for breakfast before the Renaissance Faire. Even though we don’t participate much anymore, when I read that their veggie burger was vegan, I made a mental note in case we were ever in the area. On our way back from an event way out in Riverside recently, we stopped at Farmer Boys in Irwindale. According to the Insufferable Vegan page, there are actually two vegan options at Farmer Boys, which is pretty remarkable for a fast food place. You can either get the veggie burger with no dressing or the veggie sandwich with no cheese and on either rye or sourdough bread since the wheat bread has honey.
I ordered the veggie burger sans dressing. The patty was remarkably similar to the Don Lee Farms frozen veggie burger patty. It was one of those veggie burger patties that didn’t seem all microwaved and dry. There were distinct veggies in it as well as some sunflower seeds.
It also came with lettuce, tomato, onions, and pickles (I removed those) and I added some ketchup. It was really filling and pretty moist. I would actually order this again without feeling like I was making a huge compromise, but I would likely ask for avocado to be added (FYI: Insufferable Vegan says that costs an extra $1.50). Overall – Not bad! I applaud the chain for offering two different vegan options.
