Farmington Steak House

SOME COMMENTS ON THE PLACE

This is a throwback to the “best steak house” chain that was popular in this region through the eighties. I believe various members of a Greek family owned them all with a “soup nazi” meets ma kettle attitude about how restaurants should be run. The bridge best steakhouse at the u was a rare treat for a college commuter on his way to the car after a long day of classes and labs.

Food is served assembly line with you ordering the meat as you enter and making side dish selections and such as you move down the line. By the time you reach the end of the line all is well and the meat is ready to go. Be aware that sour cream is extra but the napkins were free (at the time of this writing).

SOME COMMENTS ON THE HELP

The men at the grill have a sarcastic smile but a hardy laugh. The women are not patient but they are surly. On the night we went everyone was in good form. This is the way a restaurant should be staffed! Accents can be a bit heavy so be careful not to nod your head in the yes direction if you don’t understand what is being asked- rocky mountain oysters are not as good as they sound.

THE FOOD, THE FOOD

The great thing is that this average food tastes great at a place like this and the cost is so low that you smile through the entire meal. I’m told their lunches are the best deal around. Who could ask for more than a salad, potato, and a darn thin slice of meat?

OTHER THINGS WE THINK YOU SHOULD KNOW

Worth the stop! Farmington used to be a small town that fit its name. Unfortunately urban sprawl has arrived and things are changing fast. Get there while you still have to stop for the train as it passes the feed store.
