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... read more

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

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

I do enjoy this place. I love their fried chicken and really enjoy their sides. The kidney bean salad is outstanding! It's a little far for me to go too often but it is a nice experience. Not for formal meals but great for families and reasonably priced!

*Bring lots of quarters to play the cute, vintage games* This location has been around since the 1920's and still hasn't missed a beat. When you first drive onto the property, you will notice it is spacious, has a farm style theme, petting zoo during certain seasons and lots of available parking. When you walk in - you've gone back... More

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 virtually unchanged. I had the famous chicken... 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.
