Met a friend for lunch on a weekday. We had made a reservation and were seated promptly. Our server was very nice, but, because of her accent and soft voice, a little difficult to understand. We ordered the small spinach salad, which was very tasty....More

Both choices were flavorful and top notch. The vegetarian impossible burger is possibly better than any "meat" burger...More

I'd been looking forward to going to this restaurant for years, but when I finally went, we were disappointed with the food. Pot Roast was not flavorful, felt like something from a freezer-to microwave-meal. My wife commented that the Homemade Pasta was heavy and gooey...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.
