The wait is over for Capitol Hill residents: The chicken has landed. White Fence Farm is now serving lunch and dinner from its newest quick-service location, 1025 East Ninth Avenue.

For more than forty years, the original White Fence Farm was a solo operation, until founder Charlie Wilson sold the business to Tom Piercy and Craig Caldwell two years ago. Since then, Piercy and Caldwell have added a number of counter-service versions of the fried-chicken eatery, from the first in Green Valley Ranch to outposts in Westminster and at Elitch Gardens and the Pepsi Center.

The Capitol Hill branch offers four meals priced at $8.95 each: a four-piece chicken combo (bone-in or tenders), a chicken wrap or a chicken-tender salad, all of which come with two sides and six of the Farm's famous corn fritters. Value packs for bigger appetites or groups are also available, along with homey treats such as Rice Krispie squares, fudge, and mint-chocolate truffles.

Get your bird every day from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. — without having to head down to the farm.
