Greasy food, friendly and busy employees

The food doesn't taste quite as good as I remember it (it's been YEARS since I've been). Very greasy but still good. For the meals, you get fries AND garlic bread (with lots of greasy garlic butter!) - NOT for a person on a low-fat diet! Works a little different than most fast-food places: you put... read more

This is a long time family favorite. Walk in and order at the counter. Some Locations have sit down tables where you can eat there. Food is always fresh and Everything is cooked to order so it will be HOT and FRESH, there may be a little wait but you can phone your order in and give them 5-10 minutes... More

When my son comes to visit, it is always a must to go to Lucky Wishbone. It has been here for many years and brings back childhood memories for a lot of people. The food is mostly fried which isn't the most healthy but once in awhile it is fun to enjoy something that brings back good memories and tastes... More

When I was in high school, we would pop by Lucky Wishbone for a snack. That was fifty years ago. Still popping by!

This place serves steak fingers that Tucson-ites have been eating for years. Sit at a 4th grade desk they use for tables and enjoy. If you are even IN Tucson for whatever reason I don't need to excuse the place. Fits right in. They don't call it Lucky for nothin either.

Family-owned restaurant in Tucson since the year of the flood! Great comfort food. Try the steak fingers..yummy! They also have fried livers and gizzards...where do you see that? They may have become a little pricey ( since I was in high school) but worth the experience!

For fried chicken the Wishbone cannot be beat. Always the same, no surprises. They also offer coleslaw and potato salad and shrimp. Best for takeout.
