In a highly populated market, Decatur’s Farm Burger manages to provide a fresh experience by providing fresh beef. The appeal of Farm Burger lies primarily in their support of regional farms raising grass-fed cows. Its meat is provided by Moonshine Meats, a coalition of cattle raisers that also supplies meat for Farm 255 in Athens.
This support of quality meat has garnered a lot of attention for Farm Burger, often to the detriment of the customer. The space neighboring Watershed cannot handle the hype that it generates, making it nearly impossible to get a seat at times. Luckily, the service is quick and there are snacks for sale while you wait, so the experience is manageable.
Another great feature of Farm Burger is the selection of sides and toppings. I opted keep it simple, topping my burger with pimento cheese, bacon, and FB sauce. Next time I go I have to try the oxtail marmalade or the brisket chili. I also ordered onion rings and fries with garlic, herbs, and parmesan. Both were excellent, but the real star of the show was the burger itself. The beef was the freshest I’ve ever had. I tasted sweet flavors that I’ve never experienced in beef. Every burger I’ve had since tastes a lot lower-grade in comparison. Farm Burger is definitely one of my favorite burger experiences.
