Every Farmer Boys® has a traditional farmhouse bell to honor the heritage of our original family farm. To us, the bell is an enduring symbol of warm hospitality and great home-cooked meals from the farmhouse kitchen. So whenever you visit our restaurants, be sure to ring the bell on your way out and we’ll thank you with applause and cheers!

Ring the bell if you like the service, love the food, or just want to make some noise. It’s our tradition.


Inspired by the spirit of the heartland, Farmer Boys was built on homegrown goodness and raised on family pride. Founded by the five Havadjias brothers, the first Farmer Boys restaurant opened its doors in Perris, California in 1981. Our generous portions and farm-fresh food quickly gained a loyal following, and by 1997, seven more family owned restaurants appeared across Southern California. Eager to share their success, the Havadjias brothers granted their first franchise in 1998. A year later, the first independently owned Farmer Boys restaurant opened in Temecula, California. At last count, there were 86 Farmer Boys restaurants at locations all over Southern and Central California and in Nevada. Today, thanks to an ever-expanding franchise operation, the Farmer Boys family continues to grow.
