The food is great. It is also very economical. However, they do not cater to those who have food allergies. Their response is, "We can't promise you."

If you are expecting fine dining, this is not. It is however, down home fried food done the correct way. We enjoyed the friendly knowledgeable staff. Fried livers we're crunchy and yummy. The fried chicken was some of the best I have had. Shrimp and fish(COD) looked great and will try those next visit. Just a short but honorable mention,... More

Recently travelled to Tucson and had to have some Lucky Wishbone for lunch. As always, the food was great! The fries and garlic toast are just right and the chicken was fabulous. Always good food at Lucky Wishbone, a Tucson institution!

If you haven't tried this fried chicken you're missing a real treat!! Hands down the very best food ... short of homemade.

They have been around for over 50 years and the food is as good as it was ages ago. Their chicken and steak fingers are very good. The garlic toast that comes with the meals is great. The family feast is a great meal for a family.

Lucky Wishbone has delivered consistent quality and service for years! A family owned business done right! From the Mom n' Pop steak fingers to the shrimp box, it's always consistently good. The price is right and this is the place to go for an inexpensive comfort food fix. They never disappoint!

The steak fingers and garlic toast are awesome! Cocktail sauce is better than anywhere else I have tried, not sure what they put in there but it goes with everything on the menu. More like "can I have an order of cocktail sauce with a side of steakfingers"

I stopped in for lunch not having ever experienced this place before. I was pleasantly surprised with the taste of the chicken and the friendliness of the staff. Great place when you have the craving for some good deep fried chicken.

It is better to call ahead at this restaurant. By they time you arrive it is ready. The food is some of the best fried food you will find in Tucson. Beaware, if you have a fish allergy they do not fry their shrimp in a separate vat.

I grew up I Tucson and this was always a family favorite. Now my husband and kids love it and, when I choose to go off Vegan eating, I do too. It is what it is. All of the menu is good and the fries are super when you eat them hot. Now exercise extra for the next week!
