White Fence Farm

6263 W. Jewell Ave. Lakewood, CO 80232 | Lakewood | 303-935-5945

Location Description:

There is only one reason to endure the carnival of shlock that is White Fence Farm, and that is the fried chicken. It is some of the best around, probably the best on the Front Range. Granted, the place also has its own gift shop, playground and petting zoo - in addition to a menu of good ol'-fashioned American eats. But take good advice when it's given: Avoid all that and go straight for the fried chicken. You won't be disappointed.
