The food is good, but things in general always seem disorganized. Our order hardly ever comes out correct or complete. One of the problems could be that there are different servers bringing our food other than the person who originally took our order. If you're...More

It is a pity that Founding Farmers has a consistent problem with service in all of their locations. We have given up on the DC original; between the non-service and the ear-shattering din, we really can't tolerate it. So we tried Potomac, which has a...More

Description
MoCo's Founding Farmers is owned by the more than 40,000 family farmers of the NDFU. serving American inspired real food and drink with an emphasis and focus on scratch-cooking. While our restaurant is supplied by hundreds of family farms everywhere, that doesn't mean we know every farm, and that doesn't mean we never have to buy product from the traditional (corporate) supply chain. However, it does mean that we are working hard to direct our purchasing dollars where it aligns with our values. We're serving the best food we can, made from scratch in our kitchens every day. Our innovative, American dishes are made primarily with pure ingredients honoring the farmers and their hard-earned bounty.
