“Good food and friendly staff”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

In anchorage to visit family and people from Nebraska said to try it. Wife, 15 month old granddaughter and I took it in yesterday. Famous for there fried chicken, hamburgers, milk shakes and malts so we tried all those and a chili burger. Food was very good. Chicken was lightly breaded and very moist. Malt was great. Chili burger was a plate full. All the staff was very friendly. Location is just on the edge of downtown. Reminded me of a local diner of the past. Booths and tables available for seating. Give it a try if you are in or near anchorage.

“An institution since 1955 serving pan-fried chicken”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

Chicken comes from the lower 48 states fresh and is never frozen. Local family serves homemade recipes including chicken, onion rings, and homemade soups. Service is great. Everyone has a great attitude. Very moderate prices and very nostalgic.

“Great fried chicken!”
Reviewed June 22, 2013

I'm sure I'll be back when I get homesick for Southern fried chicken! It's got a diner feel inside (vinyl chairs with wheels, small booths) but service was quick and the price was reasonable. Parking may be a bit tight at times but we had no wait for a table.

“Great tasting fried chicken to get your fried food needs fulfilled.”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

The fried chicken at Lucky Wishbone is historical, absolutely delicious. But know this, it's all about the fried chicken. When you order a basket, you get a breast, thigh, and a piece of back, yes chicken back, no wing. Wings cost extra! And, no vege's like coleslaw, salad, or green beans, those are extra. So, if you want a basket full of chicken, fries and a roll, this is the place. If you need your fried food fill and your oil level replenished, this is the place.
