Best Burger: Farren’s Pub

By Caroline Sweeney, Staff Writer

Sometimes, part of what makes a good burger is the atmosphere in which you devour it. This year, Farren’s Pub & Eatery has been voted as the best burger in Champaign-Urbana.

Located at 117 N. Walnut St. in downtown Champaign, Farren’s Pub has a couple options for indoor seating that include a bar, as well as outdoor seating. You can also order ahead online and pick up your food to-go.

With eight different kinds of cheeses, four types of patties and four options for sides, you get the 10 listed burgers on the menu, plus the ability to modify based on dietary needs or personal preference.

If you find yourself at Farren’s Pub with an empty stomach, you can start off your meal with some well-done appetizers, including cheese curds, nachos and fried avocado slices.

This local small business strives to create a positive atmosphere for everyone who comes in. None of the pub’s servers are assigned to any specific table, so any table can ask anyone for help, and they’ll gladly oblige. This creates a more comforting experience that is perfect for enjoying a phenomenal burger. 

You can be the most adventurous eater — or the pickiest eater — and still be able to find the burger best suited for you. Head over to downtown Champaign to get the best burger at Farren’s Pub & Eatery.
