It’s a place with a rustic sounding name, but you don’t need your boots. Farm Burger in Huntsville will gladly answer the question to anyone asking, ‘where’s the beef?’

“Everything is fresh, farm to table. It’s all grass-fed beef,” Farm Burger manager Christopher George said.

Farm Burger on Bob Wallace Avenue recently celebrated its fourth birthday. The eatery was founded in 2008 by two partners in Georgia wanting to bring locally grown beef to the big city.

“Our most popular one would be the number one,” George said. “It’s got the white cheddar, the caramelized onions and house-made Farm Burger sauce. Everybody loves the vegan options,” George said.

Farm Burger’s menu features seven specialty burgers, along with sides, salads and shakes. In their last inspection, Farm Burger scored a 95.

Farm Burger on Bob Wallace in Huntsville is open every day from 11 to 9.
