Great Fried Chicken - anyone remember The Last Word in DG?

RSMBob | Sep 6, 2001 02:22 AM

Hi all,

An earlier discussion here talked about White Fence Farm, and got me to thinking about my old favorite...the long-gone Last Word on Ogden Ave in Downers Grove. My original post is listed below. Anyone remember the Last Word and/or have any favorite places for great fried chicken in the Chicago area?

White Fence Farm was always great...a trip out into "the country" for a special occasion, but memories of the finest fried chicken of all come from a place that used to be in Downers Grove on Ogden Avenue called The Last Word. And outstanding cinnamon rolls with dinner, too. They expanded into a buffet restaurant and it was never the same. Closed in the 70s sometime and ne'er to be heard from again. Anyone else remember? - Bob in RSM, CA
