Locally famous for huge burgers and with me for the chips with malt vinegar. Burger is large enough to split and very flavorful. Blue cheese dressing is a must have on their burger.

Farren's is one of my favorite places in Champaign. Great food, great atmosphere, great service. Very nostalgic for me, have never been disappointed there.

A little hard to find but we'll worth the search. Burgers were some of the best we ever had. French fries fresh and fried right. Burgers large and fries plentiful. All made to order. There was also a large selection of appetizers, salads and sandwiches

The atmosphere leaves a lot to be desired, and there's generally a wait for one of the few tables, but the food is hard to beat. Great burgers, good fries and some special salads that have been menu mainstays for decades in downtown Champaign.

I had the Santa Fe chicken sandwich with fries and my husband had the steak and cheese sandwich with tortilla chips. My chicken was dry and tough around the edges. The fries were ok. My husband said his sandwich was alright but the tortilla chips...More
