Okay, but not quite as enjoyable as it once was

I grew up in Illinois, and ate here with my family in the 1960s. Back then, it was one of our favorite places to eat after church on Sunday. We recently ate there with friends while passing through on vacation. The place really hadn't changed in any significant way. The menu was also... read more

Service was excellent. Most in our large party ordered the infamous $15 fried chicken dinner White Fence Farm is known for. Assorted relish trays items were good. Bread or rolls would have been nice. Four pieces of fried chicken and choice of potato. Mashed potatoes were instant and one scoop, no refills. I make better instant potatoes at home and... More

We went with 17 people including 5 kids ages 2-11. The kids had fun looking at all the things in the museum. The food was as good as I remembered when I last ate there 20 plus years ago. The petting zoo was rather marginal. The service was excellent, friendly, and responsive.

I had been driving past the sign for this restaurant on I-80 for years, and finally decided to drive up to Romeoviille and see for myself if there claim of the "World Best Fried Chicken" was true. I love fried chicken, and I compare all fried chicken to that which my mother made for my birthday as a kid. Well,... More

Went for lunch on Sunday afternoon. Not too busy, which was nice for us. Service and food was very good. We got steak tips, chicken strips and of course some of their tasty chicken. Everything seemed very fresh and delicious. Been a while since we've been to the actual restaurant, but will be going back again soon.

I have eaten here quite a few times and it's always very good. The chicken is consistently good as well as the corn fritters. The service is friendly and fast.

White Fence Farm is an institution in the area. We have been there many times over the many years we have lived in the area. The chicken is some of the best you can find, both in their restaurant location and in their store front take out locations. And the sides you enjoy at the restaurant are also available at... More

We ordered our food to go, so I can't discuss anything about service in the restaurant. All I can say is we really liked the chicken, and loved the corn fritters! I do remember that we did not like any of the other sides though. So in the future, all I will order is the chicken and the corn fritters!!!... More

I have not eaten here in twenty years and was so looking forward to doing so. Boy was I disappointed. The chicken was bland, not even salt and pepper for seasoning. The beets were from a jar with vinegar poured over, the cottage cheese from a container and the "cole slaw" was grated cabbage with I think vinegar, ugh! We... More

We celebrated my father's 70th birthday here--he chose this restaurant because there is an area in the restaurant where kids can play old-fashioned games (Out of the 14 of us dining, 5 were under the age of 5). The menu was limited and around $20 for each entree. You do not get much food for your money and the quality... More
