A yummy trip back in time.

I really like fried chicken and my parents had their wedding reception here in the 60's so I had to try it. I really had a great time. We went for Sunday lunch and although there were a lot of blue haired ladies there, it had young families as well. The place is HUGE, with some really "vintage... read more

This restaurant is worth a stop right off I55 heading toward Chicago. They are known for their chicken but also serve steaks and some fish. Never have had steak or fish there so I can't comment on those items. Served family style with corn fritters, cole slaw, cottage cheese, pickeled beets and my favorite bean salad. Choice of potato for... More

Lately we have been going to White Fence Farm for my birthday but have gone there with out-of-town relatives, too over the years. Our grandchildren love to go there as well as their parents. They have the best broasted chicken, baked potatoes, and sides include kidney bean salad, cottage cheese, coleslaw, beets, and corn fritters. The grandchildren could pick between... More

We used to go here for special occasions as a kid but haven't been back since moving to FL in 1985. We were back in the area visiting family and decided to stop for lunch on our way back to the airport on Saturday. I was so disappointed when we pulled in to an empty parking lot!!! They were not...

Had brought my parents here for fried chicken. It was awesome. Extremely fresh and hot. They serve you a relish prior to your dinner with fresh corn fritters, bean salad, cottage cheese and beets. They also bring you fresh bread and butter. There is no limit to them re filling the relish dishes. Even though the chicken was extremely good... More

On Sunday the TWA Windy City chapter of senior citizens made their annual visit to this restaurant for the fried chicken. I only ate the appetizers (cottage cheese, sliced beet salad, a finely chopped vinegar coleslaw, and a red bean salad). Plus I had lettuce, tomato, crouton and cheese salad. They also served a hush puppy fritter rolled in sugar... More

It's been around for years...enjoy the antiques and the ambiance. Try to catch an evening when the Legacy Girls perform music from WWII era of the 40's. The food served family style is fabulous! Of course the chicken is spectacular! Everything at White Fence Farm is GOOD and priced right. Great family venue. they welcome parties! Step back in time... More
