Founding Farmers’ Pot Roast

Although the ambiance and bar are great for a casual night, the food is the best part about Founding Farmers. Appetizers range from American classics to Yankee favorites with a twist.  You can try the fried green tomatoes, the widely-loved “popcorn of the day,” or deviled-eggs.  Another option is the “bacon lollies.” Who doesn’t like bacon on a stick? Like the safe “assorted nuts?”  Try a mix of roasted peanuts, raisins, BBQ, and savory spices.  I’m sure your mouth is watering—and I’ve just covered a fraction of the appetizers!

For the main course, you can indulge in classic sandwiches; chili cheeseburgers, delicious shaved pork or roasted turkey with Gruyere and arugula. There are crab rolls, pastrami rolls, and even the “balsamic onion bacon dog.” Bacon on anything is guaranteed to be delicious. I suggest the meatloaf or the Yankee Pot Roast, or one of the homemade pasta dishes…or a giant, gourmet salad…  Yeah, I can’t really offer the best entrée—as they are all equally delicious.

Try an amazing drink for the bar! Sample a freshly made soup.  Don’t even ask me about dessert… I won’t be able to refrain from drooling all over my keyboard.

Mouthwatering dishes with perfectly seasoned ingredients and fun presentations are what Founding Farmers specializes in. If you’re craving a delicious, “made from scratch” meal, then look no further, Founding Farmers is the place for you to dine tonight!  Note: Since the “secret” regarding Founding Farmers is common knowledge, you will want to get a reservation. If the D.C. location is full, head up to the Maryland location in Potomac—it is more suited to walk-ins.
