Towards the tail end of our Alaska trip, my family and I were looking for something reasonably priced after eating at many overpriced (albeit some good ones) restaurants. This place is definitely a throwback. Between the three of us we had fried chicken and a hamburger. The chicken wasn't the best I've ever had but was definitely good. You could... More

if you are looking for a GREAT burger or FRIED CHICKEN this is the place to go!! It's an old favorite establishment of the residents here in the great state of Alaska. The food is consistant in it's goodness. If you are a tea drinker, not to worry, you won't find fountain tea here. It's freshly brewed. Or if you... More

We have been visiting Lucky Wishbone over the last 30 yrs. Food has changed. Not as tasty as it use to be. Chicken has been very greasy last few visits. Side items have not been good. It is a shame because this place use to be a special visit. Sat at a table that was dirty and chair broken. Place... More

Great food, but expensive (most everything is ordered a la carte). Very busy at lunch. Friendly staff. Lots of parking. If yo like fast food (McDonalds, etc.) skip them and go to Lucky WIshbone.

Best hamburgers in town & love the hot fudge sundae's! It is a local's favorite & the fried chicken is also great! I never go there that I don't see someone I know. Also the waitresses are very good at what they do & are very friendly!

Moved to Alaska in 1972 and left in in 88. After all these years the chicken is still as good and the owner still present on site enjoying himself. Place is clean, set up is exactly the same ( booths and chairs recovered) outside the same and the parking lot still full with customers. Anchorage has changed SO MUCH since... More

I have gone here since I was a child, and the food hasn't changed a bit. When you need a delicious cheeseburger, pan fried chicken, and a milkshake, this is the place to go. They have been in anchorage for over 50 years. Don't let the appearance fool you, and go inside for quick service and delicious food.
