Let me start off by saying that the chicken is not terrible. I bought the 12 piece special and all of it will get eaten. However, I can't recall any other place I've eaten chicken that wasn't as good or better. On the plus side, the breast meat was moist and tender. The breading,while crispy, did not have a lot...

Great value, always done right and outstanding sides. The service is really quick and the food is always a crowd pleaser. Though no place to sit and eat, they are 2 blocks away from Hummer park where you can eat at a picnic bench and do some communing with nature. Or take it home and enjoy.

The chicken is really greasy, and while the corn fritter are tasty, they are greasy also. The sides are OK, but not the greatest either.

White Fence Farm claims to have the word's best chicken and they might be right. I think they both bake and fry the chicken to give it a really great flavor without feeling greasy. The menu is limited and I actually don't like any of the side dishes (the mashed potato gravy and every other side is odd-tasting to me)... More

Nice carry out chicken - getting in and out of the place can be tough. The branch is sometimes friendly and the food arrives failrly quick - no place to sit in comfort.

If you can get to the original White Fence Farm in Romeoville, go for the old-time atmosphere and the great old-time food. If you can't get there, the carryout still has the good food!

I just don't get the appeal of White Fence Farm chicken. The place is usually very busy and seems to be popular. But in my opinion the chicken is bland and greasy; would it kill 'em to add a little pepper to the coating? Or even a smidge of sage or oregano? The best I can say is that I... More
