White Fence Farm - Route 66 Restaurant

100 year old farm restaurant with a giant chicken statue, museum of teddy bears, antique cars and arcade games. Mostly it's a trip back to 50s and 60s family dining complete with high balls, doggy bags, and a relish tray. Save the petting zoo for after the house specialty, brandy ice. Oh and yes, there are chickens in the zoo. You can feed them before they feed you.
