    Living a block away from Wishbone is awesome. When out of town guests visit, dining at Wishbone is a must. Eating my way through the menu. EVERYTHING is delicious. Today the shrimp and grits rocked!

    Breakfast is always busy. Wonder if it's because the cheese grits taste as great as if you're in the south. Never disappointed with the food.

    They've split ties with the west loop branch and have really gone downhill. Completely empty at 8pm Sat, stale draft beers, and very mediocre entrees. Maybe brunch is their A game?

    Bellini was tasty but the peach pulp didn't mix well and I had a really thick mess when I got to the bottom of the glass.

    I am a repeat offender: Iced Latte and the Black Bean Cakes with Mango Salsa, plus a side of Sautéed Spinach! Must also have a corn muffin! Wish I could go here every weekend.

    The fried green tomatoes could use more flavor. They'd be better with chèvre
