Chain opens up new eatery
Stanislaus County residents have known that Farmer Boys has been offered in Riverbank for a number of years. They often ring the bell as they leave to announce that their meal tasted great. But the drive got a lot shorter for Ceres residents with the opening of a Farmer Boys at the northeast corner of Mitchell and Service roads last month.

Farmer Boys restaurant was founded by the five Havadjias brothers in Perris, Calif., in 1981. The eatery's generous portions and farm-fresh food quickly gained a loyal following, and by 1997, seven more family owned restaurants appeared in Southern California. The chain granted its first franchise in 1998. A year later, the first independently owned Farmer Boys restaurant opened in Temecula. The chain now has over 70 Farmer Boys restaurants at locations all over California and Nevada.

Starting at 6 a.m., (except on Sunday when 7 a.m. is opening) the restaurant is known for serving breakfast all day. Breakfast plates include three-egg platters, hotcakes, breakfast burritos, egg sandwiches, biscuits and gravy and fruit bowls.

Lunch and dinner items include hamburgers, melts and classic sandwiches, soups and chili, fresh salads, fish and flame broiled chicken.

Farmer Boys closes at 10 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays and on Sundays; and 11 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.
