Farrells Candy Buena Park

As a kid, I can recall the Farrell’s Tradition, celebrating many birthdays with friends and family, enjoying Sundays, Pig’s Troughs and more.  Naturally, I’m giddy that they are back, and literally down the street! I can continue the tradition with my children.

We were honored to be invited to the VIP Opening Party last weekend to celebrate with staff, family and friends.  As the tradition continues, Farrell’s staff are more than willing to entertain and even embarass you with their witty humor, catchy tunes and amazing ice cream creations.

Farrell's Is Back

A little Farrell’s History:

  • The first Farrell’s Ice Cream Parlour, a unique “Celebration” restaurant, opened in 1963 Portland, Oregon by Bob Farrell
  • In 1970, the company had 58 restaurants open
  • In 1971 the Marriott Corporation bought the company and grew to 130 locations nationwide and changed their concept to a ” traditional family restaurant”, ultimately closing in 1990.
  • In 1996, a new company tried to bring back the infamous Farrell’s Ice Cream Parlours and with a few legal tussles from 2003-2008 again stopped Farrell’s development.
  • In 2009, now under the ownership of Orange County, California based, Parlour Enterprises Inc. Farrell’s is back. With a goal of keeping true to the original company and input from Bob Farrell, Parlour Enterprises brings Farrell’s into the Twenty First Century.
Farrell's Special Occasions

Farrell’s Ice Cream Parlour Restaurants still offers a amazing American cuisine for the entire family! Here are just a few of the delicious items on the menu….

Farrells Chopsticks Chicken Salad

Farrells Chopsticks Chicken Salad is perfect if you’re looking for a little “kick”.  This delicious salad consists of chopped cabbage and romane lettuce, red cabbage, SPICY peanuts, carrots, tomatoes, cilantro, scallions, rice noodles, crispy wonton strips and sesame ginger dressing with grilled chicken. I loved every last heated bite!

Farrells Fabulous French Dip

Farrells Fabulous French Dip starts with a Parmesan-buttered French Roll piled with thinly sliced oven roasted Angus beef.  To top it off, add some swiss cheese, creamy horseradish or Au jus.

Farrells All American Burger

Farrell’s All American Burger is a 1/2 lb of fresh beef flame broiled with crisp lettuce, pickles, red onion, tomato and Farrell’s Sauce with your choice of cheese.

Farrells Slugger cheesehangerber

For guests of the “Tiny Variety” – that is 12 and under, Farrell’s offers a great selection:

  • Slugger Hangerber or CheeseHangerber
  • Grilled Cheese Samich
  • Mac ‘N Cheese Please!
  • Chickity Dippers
  • Hot Diggity Dogs!
  • You Name It Pizza
  • Grilled Chicken Breast
  • Even a Clown Sundae!

After a fantastic lunch or dinner, you must save room for a fabulous desserts, because that is Farrell’s specialty.  In fact, if you look at the menu, I think the “Fountain Fantasies” section has the most options.

Farrell's Strawberry Shake

Farrell’s Strawberry Shake is purely heaven.  Old time, rich and creamy shake with a touch of strawberry flavor, whip cream and a cherry is to die for.

Farrell's Caramel Nugget

Farrell’s Caramel Nugget is perfect for candy bar lovers!  I had this amazing dessert with a scoop of chocolate ice cream, loaded with creamy caramel and nuts, hot fudge and more caramel, topped off with whipped cream, more nuts and a cherry – pure bliss!

Farrells Ice Cream Nachos

“For the Rebels, because they just don’t fit into any category”, the Farrells Ice Cream Nachos consists of a waffle cone, mint chip, chocolate malted crunch and vanilla ice cream; topped with hot fudge, caramel, blueberries, whipped cream, almonds and a cherry.

Farrell's Ice Cream

Farrell’s Ice Cream Parlour is the perfect place to commemorate any occasion – or make any typical day into a reason to celebrate.  My advice, plan early!  If you have a big party, make sure you call ahead to make reservations!

  1. I enjoyed Farrell’s for many years as a child and celebrated many birthdays and I would hope to see a revitalized Farrell’s in our town of Bakersfield Calif. Even if I was to run it myself. Ii would be a big shot in the arm for this growing city and I have always dreamed of my own Ice cream and candy store. With the world moving so fast we forget the past and the simple things in life that make you feel good and this establishment and Idea should not be lost in the future but be preserved for all to experience and enjoy. If I was given the opportunity and means I would open one up right here in Bakersfield and I would be confident in it not just turning a profit but giving joy and a happy exciting experience to young and old alike.
