Description: Located one block from Oprah Winfrey's Harpo Studios and perfectly centered between City Hall and the United Center, Wishbone was an early participant in the emergence of the West Loop neighborhood from a commercial area to one of the city's culinary hot spots. We've been here through it all, quietly serving our own unique brand of Southern Cooking.

Just went for lunch. Parking around here is now crazy. Cost more to park by valet costs more than lunch. I won't go if I had to pay.
Back to food. Southern style. Great gumbo. Bread pudding best I've ever had. Maybe it's the caramel sauce.?
Have had their catfish and chicken...both great. Sides are fantastic.
Service is great. Atmosphere is comfortable. Very clean.
Years ago I went here at least once a week.
Always said it was one of my go to places if I want a good meal at a fair price.
Try it. Order something from the daily special. Order anything on the menu that you think sounds good. It will be.

Wishbone is a very friendly diner famous for its generous breakfasts. It should get equal credit for dinner as well. It's a slower time but no less friendly and no less delicious. Generous portions of Southern staples are always available - fried chicken, jambalaya, po boys and more full the menu alongside more generic fare like burgers. If it's on special don't miss the delicious crawfish etouffée - a bit of N'awlins authenticity I didn't expect to find in the Windy City. Great service, reasonable prices

Wishbone never fails to delight your taste buds. The hash: andouille chicken sausage, brisket, or smoked beef... try them all but hands down, the andouille wins. Spicy and savoury. Just like New Orleans

Great restaurant, superb food, relaxed and unpretentious atmosphere.
Had a wonderful meal here tonight. The Crawfish Beignets are truly amazing, the bread pudding is superb and the Mississippi Mud coffee is perfect on a cold winter evening. Not just fantastic traditional southern food, although that is there if you want it, there is part of the menu that takes a interesting and creative step away from the norm without losing it's origins.
Staff are super friendly and the easy going vibe is excellent. I've only been a couple times but both times there have been large parties, birthdays etc. People like this place and feel very comfortable here.
As a recent transplant to Chicago, Wishbone has become my new favorite restaurant. Will be coming back here often and telling all my friends.

Great hearty and fulfilling food. I had the crap cakes and collard greens and they were the best. For desert had the bread pudding and it was nice and warm and sweet.
