I had previously only dined at Founding Farmers for dinner. So coming in for brunch and having to be so, so delicious was a treat! Bring the stretchy pants, folks. You’re going to want to go up to the buffet tables several times. Must tries: cinnamon buns, crab dip, and salmon.

Comparing our brunch buffet experiences per and post COVID, it’s better now. The wait staff brings certain items to the table straight from the kitchen and the buffet has servers. Very safe and the food was delicious as always. A wonderful experience.

My Chicago dog was okay. It didn’t taste the same when you could by three hotdogs for one price

Kind of a mixed bag. Everything is basically okay but nothing stands out—not food quality, ambiance, service, etc. You’ll get a decent meal, which I suppose is the main point, but nothing that will cause you to be wowed. Took a long time to get our drinks ordered and by the time they arrived, meal arrived 2 minutes later. Of the dishes ordered by our group of 4, the Steak Frites was the best—nicely prepared.

There were 6 of us and we all got different dishes. Most were delicious but one order of Turkey was tough and hard to cut and chew. My dish came out with the main cold but the side warm. Portions were quite large. The interior has high ceilings so it was hard to hear our tables conversation over the background noise. Overall 3 out of 5 stars.

We had the most incredible experience at Founding Farmers DC. The Tyson’s Corner restaurant was not as impressive. The fried green tomatoes were not very crispy. The hoe cakes were hot and sweet, best I’ve had in a long time. My steak was cooked properly, however the green beans were almost raw. The desserts were good, the bread pudding would’ve benefitted from more sauce, but the flavor was nice. I would go there again.

I love founding farmers! It is by far one of my favorite brunches around the area. You get the most value for your money with the all you can eat menu and being able to order custom food from the back and a delicious drink menu to top it off!

Excellent service from our server. Food was amazing. We did the buffet brunch and the mimosas were delicious...my fav being the cranberry. Loved how spacious it is and they followed CDC guidelines, which was the cherry on top. Would def recommend not only this place but it’s location.

Food was good. At first we were seated at the furthest point in the restaurant. This made no sense because the entire upstairs was empty. The seating and assignment of tables made no sense. My reservation was 9:00 am in the morning and the hostess wanted to seat us all the way in the back of the upper level and the entire section was empty. We had to complain.

All of the food came out cold except for the chicken. There were alot of people seated in the same area. It didn’t feel very social distanced. The drinks weren’t good.

Founding Farmers is our go to place for great eats. Our waiter was tentative, but not overbearing. He mentioned the specials of the day and recommended menu items. The food was hot and delicious. The restaurant was following COVID protocols as the tables were more than 6 feet apart and the staff wore masks.
