Said Dave S. from Chicago: “If someone wanted to go here for a chicken dinner. There is absolutely no way I would ever turn them down! Their fried chicken is the gold standard on my humble opinion, hands down. This fried chicken is what I judge all fried chicken against. The thing is that this has been true since I was young! The quality of their food has not diminished since I can remember. I have never left here feeling unsatisfied with the food or portions.”
Said Megan C. from Elgin: “Love this place. I started going here a few years ago with my boyfriend and his family. I'm not a big fan of all the salads they bring out first. Boyfriend and I just went yesterday and we skipped most of it, I ate the cottage cheese and we got extra corn fritters. The chicken comes out faster than you could say kentucky fried chicken. We had enough left over too that I had it for lunch today. Our waiter was also very nice and we got lots of corn fritters and some extra to take home, score!”
Said Melanie V. from Chicago: “$14.50 for 4 pieces of fried chicken? I was appalled, yet intrigued. We stumbled into White Fence Farm on our way down to Starved Rock. (Obviously, we were insane if we thought there'd be no traffic on 55 on a Friday. Yesssir.) The menu literally has fried chicken, steak, fried shrimp and maybe a salad somewhere. If you're looking for a healthy meal, just don't come here. It's fine. All the dinners come with beet salad, cottage cheese, coleslaw, kidney bean salad and AMAZING corn fritters. Besides the beets (as I'm just not a fan in general), all the slides were actually really great! The chicken comes out pretty fast, so you're not sitting and waiting for 20 minutes like at other places.This chicken is REALLY tasty and somehow not that greasy. Crispy skin, juicy chicken - It was amazing. They gave us some Sweet Baby Ray's bbq sauce, too!”
So, are you going out for dinner today?
