Set in southwestern Chicago, Romeoville serves as another classic Midwest town along Route 66. We’re making progress too, as Romeoville is the first city on our trip outside of Cook County.
After checking out the Route 66 Information Kiosk Romeoville, visit the White Fence Farm – an iconic Route 66 restaurant along Joliet Road. Marked by the giant chicken you can't miss, White Fence Farm is a great lunch spot, offering what they humbly promote to be the "World’s Greatest Chicken." Well, we don't know how official any of these rankings really are.
You come for the chicken, but you of course stay for the White Fence Farm Zoo. Come meet Carmel the goat and "kid" Snickers, Lady GaGa the llama, and many others in Romeoville.
