I visited the restaurant 25 years ago on Mothers day. I was in the area around dinner time, so I stopped in for some take out. The food was reasonable priced for restaurant carryout, but the food was mediocre.

We've been going to this place for years ever since we found out there's a carry out location in Downers Grove. We visited the original restaurant and while we were impressed with everything it's just too far away. This place is fast AND high-quality food...More

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...More
