Excellent food. One of the best chicken I have ever had. Corn Fritters! OMG A if they are fresh and haven't been sitting around long. They could use more 'corn' in them. Prices are getting out of hand. It is just a chicken dinner!

White Fence Farms has been there a long time and there's a reason, the chicken. They have other food too, but most folks go for the chicken and fritters. Got good shrimp and fish too, so drop by and see for yourself.

On a recent visit to Oak Park, White Fence Farm was recommended to us for take-out chicken. We were not disappointed! The chicken was hot, moist & delicious; the fritters were a pleasant surprise. Along with coleslaw and French fries, our chicken dinner was delicious & well worth the price!

This establishment is a treat just to sit and relax in a very "country" style atmosphere. Great food, specializing in fried chicken but the fish and steak are very good as well. The side dishes of beets, coleslaw, hush puppies and cottage cheese are a treat in themselves but the chicken is fantastic. Great service from a staff of professionals.... More

Was so excited to finally try this place since fried chicken is my favorite meal. Boy was I disappointed!!! This is probably some of the worst fried chicken I've ever had. It was extremely wet and soggy and had no flavor. I cannot even put into words how nasty the gravy was that came with the mashed potatoes. It is... More

Went today and wait was pretty bad which is expected on easter. Food was excellent. All the sides were perfect and so was the shrimp. Waiter was subpar.

My elderly father-in-law told us stories about the legendary taste of White Fence Farm chicken for years. He had gone there sometime back in the '70s, the '80s, and most recently, before the turn of the Century. Last night he finally convinced us to drive him there for dinner -- with the promise that he'd pay for dinner. "No brainer."... More

Innocently 10 of us bought 4 pieces of chicken each but when the food came it was put on 2 platters of 12 making it only 24 pieces of chicken. I was with future in-laws and did not want to make a scene. I will never go to WFF ever again.
