Marilyn Hagerty Reviews Founding Farmers

June 11, 2014


marylynNorth Dakota food critic, Marilyn Hagerty, began reviewing restaurants during the mid seventies and has gained popularity for her candid review style. Founding Farmers DC was thrilled to learn that the legend’s granddaughter was sent to dine with us by Hagerty herself. The younger Hagerty had fantastic time while enjoying great food and service. She relayed stories of decadent mashed potatoes and a staff both courteous and knowledgeable. We were glad to introduce the younger Hagerty and her guest to the Founding Farmers signature dish “Chicken and Waffles!” Founding Farmers thanks both Marilyn Hagerty and her grand daughter for a fantastic review and welcomes both ladies on their next trip to the District of Columbia. Read the full review here.
