The "Big Bone" location of the local minichain specializing in southern comfort food.
The menu rarely changes, but no one seems to mind. While a few Raters grumble that the food doesnt justify the hype -- or the crowds -- most seem to agree that Wishbones combination of fast, reliable, moderately creative food, brisk service, full patio, and funky decor doesnt need much tinkering. Lunch and dinner feature upscale southern comfort food such as blackened catfish, chicken-fried steak, collard greens, and buttery corn bread muffins. Wishbone packs them in for weekend breakfast with platters of reasonably priced omelets, eggs Florentine, crab cakes, and the cheesiest grits in town. The Big Bone, at Washington and Morgan, gets higher marks for service than the Lakeview location (3310 N. Lincoln, 773-549-2663); there's a third location associated with FitzGerald's (6611 Roosevelt, Berwyn, 708-749-1295).
