For good measure, the photo below absolutely had to be shared as well. There is only one word to describe The Farmer and the Cow and that is scrumptious. Craig raved on Yelp, "Great burgers. Awesome atmosphere. Fantastic bourbon selection.  Spectacular service." What more could you ask for? They even have milkshakes themed after breakfast cereals!
