The Zagat Review
A “love for local, seasonal food” fuels this “farm-to-table” chainlet where “big portions” of “something-for-everyone” American dishes (e.g. red-velvet pancakes, bacon lollipops) are paired with “unusual homemade drinks” ; the rustic-chic settings are “always crowded” , and despite the “noise” , fans claim “you can’t go wrong” here.

Update as of 2018-Feb: I had an amazing experience at Founding Farmers Tysons recently! To my surprise and delight I was told that fried vegetables are no longer fried in animal fat. To add to that, I tried their new impossible burger (plant based) and it tastes amazing! The fried green tomatoes tasted great as well. I really appreciate the restaurant's efforts to listen to customer feedback and offer various options. I really wanted to give another chance to Founding Farmers as it used to be my favorite restaurant until I heard about their cooking method (see below). I am happy and hope to return very soon! Old Review from 2017: I was surprised and shocked to learn that EVERYTHING that's served fried at this restaurant has beef tallow/fat in it. It's disgusting and unacceptable. Especially for a vegetarian like me, it is terrible. There is absolutely no need or necessity that french fries or fried green tomatoes needs to be fried in tallow. What's worse is that there is no option that vegetarians could get these things fried in regular vegetable oil. I will never set foot in founding farmers again.

If you are going on weekends, plan ahead as this place gets busy. The food was really fresh and tasty and service was great. A friend of mine recommended to order the impossible burger! It’s veggie burger with soy extract . I am not vegetarian but I ordered to see what’s the deal ! Try it ! You won’t be disappointed . My husband ordered the shrimp and lobster risotto and it was perfect.

I've only been here for the all-you-can-eat weekend brunch. With that being said, this place is amazing. From what I understand all of their food is made in-house, and it definitely shows. Everything is delicious. Great atmosphere too. Note that you might want to call ahead and check out how crowded it is before going.
