    The burger is really good! The blackened chicken sandwich is big and a little spicy. For sides, I really liked the home fries. The cheese grits were okay. Friendly staff.

    Grits are a trending taste this week and you can get some damn good ones at Wishbone. You really want their classic shrimp and grifts. If you're not a fan of seafood, the cheesy grits are great, too.

    Shrimp and grits were a little on the blander side but what can u expect from grits. The moonshine cocktails are where it's rly at. $6 a pop and plenty of the good stuff to get u going.

    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.

    For sides, skip the mac and cheese and try the Hoppin' Jack. Kids eat free on Tuesdays!
