My husband and I were vacationing in Chicago and ate at the Wishbone on Washington and I must say we really enjoyed ourselves. The atmosphere was great, the service was wonderful and the food was delicious. We would visit again and we suggest that you visit as well. The food is not the normal bland food you would find at traditional places. The flavor and variety will have everyone ordering different things off the menu and wanting to sample off each other's plate,lol. The grits were wonderful and the freshly made strawberry lemonade was great!

If you go for brunch, make sure to get a bloody mary. They are fantastic! Great cajun cuisine, and the cornbread is a must. The service was quick and friendly, and everything was reasonably priced.

This place is great. The biscuits and gravy, grits and bloody marys are all phenomenal. Cute decor inside and a great patio outside. One of the best brunches in the city.

Pros: grits, bloody mary, patio

Cons: can be a wait on the weekend

The best cornbread I have found around - hints of onion, and always served fresh.

The drink prices aren't bad, there is usually a special. With a meal and a drink, the price runs around $20. The service is average.

Make sure to get the mashed sweet potatoes. Vegan options are available!

I just moved to Chicago a month ago, and I've been to Wishbone three times -- each visit has been terrific. The Savannah shrimp omelette is a hangover cure on a plate...genius. The perfect brunch spot, though it gets crazy crowded: proof, however, that it's a deservedly hot spot.

Pros: Food, decor, service

Cons: Gets very crowded during weekend brunch

I went here with a group of four people, all with very different tastes. Some were vegetarian, some were decidedly carnivores. We were all very happy with our meals. We ate outside on the patio, and were all extremely happy with our food and our dining experience.

Wishbone is a wonderful southern style restaurant with a funky flair. The restaurant is large, decorated with eclectic decor, and while it gets crowded sometimes, the "adult" (formally the smoking) section, is more quiet and private. As a vegetarian, there's quite a wide variety of things to eat. I love the 'Hoppin' John' dish- black eyed peas, rice, mixed veggies, topped with chedder cheese. Yummmy! They also have many veggie side dishes, and the best mashed potatoes ever! Also, you get a lot of food for your money here, the portions are huge! The service is friendly and catering to the patrons. They also have a great bar. I love going in for hearty soul food, and unwinding with a cocktail. I wish the veggie dishes were slightly more spicy, but other than that, Wishbone rocks! I also adore their trademark snearing poodle too, she so cute!

I have been going to Wishbone on Lincoln for the last five years. My last visit was absolutely horrible. The service was the worst. I don't know what happened, but I don't think I will be returning. There are plenty of other breakfast places in the area with better food and service. Too bad, this used to be a good restaurant.

I can't believe what a great deal this place is!! The food is really good, consistent and everything is made from scratch. It can get really busy but great things are worth waiting for. Definately try the shrimp and grits. Also it's a great place to take out of town guests, especially the one on Washington. You get to experience a real cross-section of Chicago there.

This place is great. Never been to the one downtown, but I like this one. Always pretty busy, somewhat crowded.....but the wait has never been too long. The food is great, the price is right, and you won't find more unique food on any other menu. Try the Crunchy French Toast breaded with corn flakes or the Jambalaya Omelette.

I love wishbone and agree with the opener review as well. I hope that this does not become an "it" place to eat. I doubt that it will, not because it doesn't have the potential to become a place like that but because it is an establishment that no longer needs to prove itself worthy of it's corwds. The Sunday brunch is awesome and the killer bloody mary alone has kept me coming back for more. I would reccomend this place to everyone who has a hanckerin for home cookin

In Short
Spacious and airy, this Roscoe Village hangout is a favorite for Southern-style brunch. Piquant red eggs on corn tortillas with black beans, cheese, chili-ancho sauce, sour cream and salsa is a menu standout. Other…
