I wrote a review last week of my first ever trip here. The chicken was somewhat bland and dry. The corn fritters were very good. The rest was meh. So since we were going back through Romeoville and needed to eat, we thought we would give it one more chance. We had seen it last winter on Check, Please and... More

My daughter is a picky eater and even she ate her dinner (the original dinner). Love to take leftovers home and its still good... More

Since its beginning in the early 1920s, White Fence Farm in southwest suburban Romeoville has advertised that it produces "The World's Greatest Chicken." Order a half-pound chicken dinner (four pieces) with kidney bean salad, cole slaw, cottage cheese, pickled beets, corn fritters and choice of French fries, mashed potatoes or baked potato with homemade gravy, all for $15, and you...

I recently visited the Chicago area, after more than 25 years since my last trip there. One of my memories from the past involved White Fence Farm in Romeoville. When my friend and I visited, the place looked pretty much the same, both inside and out. We both purchased the traditional Chicken Dinner, that comes with family style sides and... More

I used to go here as a child for special occasions with my family and grandmother (40 years ago). I had no idea that it was still open until last time on my visit I saw the billboard along the freeway on my way to the airport. So that was the only request this trip - visit White Fence Farm... More

The food was not as good as $15 chicken should be, the chicken tenders were overcooked and tough. Used to come here when I was a child, I remember a fun family dining experience with great chocked, games, and a petting zoo. Now it seems run down, the games are broken, the bathroom smells, and the zoo no longer allows... More

It has been a long time since we had been there...so long the kids didn't remember it! So we went last night. The chicken was nice and moist, but if you are looking for something with some flavor, this is not it. My daughter had the fish and said the same thing. Good but not terrific. Our waitress was very... More

We celebrated a family member's birthday here at his request. It is an old restaurant, with lots of added-on rooms and strange passageways. Immediately upon entering, you are hit with a nauseating, musty smell. This went away somewhat when we went through several doors and hallways to reach our dining room. The menu specialty is chicken. None of my family... More

Now do not get me wrong, I have enjoyed White Fence Farm's chicken and fritters for years, often times going to their carry out location in Joliet when I had a taste for fried chicken and, of course, their wonderfully tasty and sweet corn fritters. Their sitdown restaurant, however, show's a side that leads me to believe it is better... More

We had a disappointing experience. After we were seated, it was a long wait to place a drink order and to get those drinks. Our waitress was pleasant enough but after she brought our drinks and took our order, we didn't see her again till she dropped the bill on the table and scurried away. Other people (busboys?) brought our... More
