Wishbone on Washington has been serving Southern cooking to Chicago since 1990. Fresh, made from scratch food at honest prices.
Wishbone’s mascot Dolly is the owner’s actual childhood dog. Stop by for fast-service brunch, but also don’t forget to try their signature shrimp & grits, blackened catfish, or smoked beef brisket.
the corn cakes are a brunch must
Try the crunchy french toast
Crawfish cakes dns shrimp-n-grits are a must have.
I am sure your meal was great! You are also right across the street from West Loop Chiropractic! The Doc will make you feel great!
The Shrimp and Grits are excellent.
Addicted to the cheese grits!
My new favorite restaurant. Shrimp n grits!!!
For sides, skip the mac and cheese and try the Hoppin' Jack. Kids eat free on Tuesdays!
The fried green tomatoes are not to be missed! Some of the best I've ever had!
Seafood gumbo and the veggie platter- a delicious late lunch!
Early bird special 7-9 am Weekdays
Crab cake Benedict is delicious
The best (and maybe the only) place for Southern grits in Chicago!
Crunchy french toast is really good.
Beef brisket hash off the chain, with some A1 steak sauce.
The Southern Benedict is awesome!!!
Service is a bit slow but food is great. Try the corn cakes.
Don't forget to do breakfast here. The corn cakes, jumbalaya omelet and cheese grits are excellent! Great sweet tea too.
Ask for Big Dave. He'll take great care of you!!!
Shrimp and grits for brunch
Awesome southern cuisine, the blackened chicken with black-eyed peas and sweet potatoes was very good. Enjoy the alcohol soaked cherry in their mixed drinks!
Always trustworthy for homey brunch
They have an express lunch area that is great for getting food on the go!
PHENOMENAL!! The biscuit was lightweight, the cheese grits were delicious. Good, fast service. Large portions & decently priced. Will DEFINITELY be coming back.

If you've never tried it, you can order a single corn cake. They are amazing.

Whatever you do don't eat here. If you know real soul food you will quickly realize this is not it! The greens have no flavor. The fried chicken skin was soggy.
