Great food - "okay" service.
I've grown up with White Fence Farm. The staff at the door is either overly nice or the total opposite. The wait staff is "okay". The food is always hot and good, but the dining experience is always a hit or miss. We will return, but it has only become a once a year thing and when we do we hope it is a "good" day.
Families have packed into this cavernous fried chicken emporium for good, cheap home cooking since 1954.. The Scene A stunning thirteen dining rooms branch out in all directions from the lobby of this maze-like restaurant, which seats a whopping 1,100 patrons. Check in at the front, but be sure to remember the name of the dining room you've been assigned. Grandfather clocks, old photos and kitschy craft displays adorn the lobby walls. Service is fast and friendly.
The Food Pressure-cooked, then flash-fried, fried chicken comes out tender and juicy, with a light crust of secret-recipe breading. For $12.25 get a half-chicken (four pieces), fries or baked or mashed potatoes with chicken gravy, and a table full of relishes: cole slaw (with an oil and vinegar dressing, not mayo), cottage cheese, bean salad (with a mayo dressing), pickled beets and positively addictive corn fritters (dusted with powdered sugar). The menu also offers T-bone and rib-eye steaks (huge--12 to 25 ounces--and grilled to perfection), whitefish and fried shrimp.
