Hamburgs, chicken, soups, and salads are on the menu and very good food and the service is great. This is not a fancy place but it is a place that many local people come and dine.

I love Lucky Wishbone. This is where friends went on there first date 50 plus years ago. The chicken and burgers are to die for. Plus the shakes are yummy. When serving jury duty we were told we could continue with our deliberations or would we prefer to order lunch from Lucky Wishbone. Well that was a no brainier and... More

You walk in to this little diner and you are immediately hit with the homey atmosphere and amazing smells of fried chicken dinner. Everyone is treated like family and welcome the chicken is so good you may want to take home an extra portion for later! Their hamburgers are pretty great too! I love getting a shake when I drive...

Me and my family would come here everytime we came into town. We lived in rural Ak. Their burgers, chicken and especially the milkshakes are wonderful. Come here and make it your family tradition. The pilot memorabilia is awsome too. The dates we came here are from the early 90's all the way up to 2010. I 'm sure its... More

This is fast food. The hamburgers and fried chicken are always great. But my favorite is the halibut burger and a chocolate malted milk.

My husband and I go here often We love their chicken and usually that is what we have. However, there are other items on the menu equally as good: halibut sandwich, burgers, tuna sandwich, soups... I also am partial to the orange shakes (one day I'm going to have to try one of the many other flavors). Recently I took... More
