I love chicken tenders so much, and when Carly recommended them I could not pass up the opportunity. Very excellent experience and I will be back again but only when Carly is working and not when Nathan is.

I had ordered a meal for my husband over the phone. When I went there to pay for it and take it home there were 4 people behind the counter. At least three people looked my way during the 3-4 minutes I was waiting. Not one person bothered to smile. Not one person bothered to greet me or tell me... More

Every time we go in there the food has always been good but it is always so cold in there a person cannot enjoy it because you are freezing. Even in the winter with a winter coat on it is freezing. I know the waitresses get warm running around there but they also need to consider the comfort of the... More

This place is always full of people. They food is great and so are the prices. I eat here often. Haven't had a bad meal yet. Seems to be a Springfield favorite as a meeting place! You're going to love it. Family friendly.

Farmer Boy exemplifies my idea of the typical midwest family diner. The service is great and friendly, the portions are reasonable, and the food is comforting. It's my family's go-to place when we need good food that will sit well on our stomachs. I will say as a potential caveat, if you're under the age of 50, you may feel... More

The meals were priced very reasonable. I had all you could eat fish on Friday for 8.99. My friend had the extremely large portion of 12 oz. swiss steak with veggies on top. It was huge and was, also, 8.99. It was clean and friendly. My first time and I think I would like to go back and try some... More

Fantastic meals at a reasonable price! On Sat. Night the best veg. Soup in town is served. Each day they provide a special and it is worth trying! All their meals are very good and many meals for the kids!

Just a comfortable place to get a decent meal for a decent price. Their Hillbilly breakfast is good if you're even able to eat all of it :) And the all you can eat fish on Friday evenings is also good. Nothing fancy about this place, and no tv to distract anyone from having a conversation :)
