This Old-School Alaska Restaurant Serves Chicken Dinners To Die For
Sometimes you just need comfort food, and there’s nothing like a chicken dinner to make you feel like everything’s right in the world. Here’s a restaurant in Anchorage that’s been serving up tasty chicken since 1955, and you’re going to want to pay it a visit. Check out Lucky Wishbone:
Welcome to Lucky Wishbone! This little gem was established back in 1955, and residents and guests of Anchorage have been raving about the chicken here ever since.
You'll find Lucky Wishbone Restaurant at 1033 E. 5th Ave., Anchorage, AK 99501.
This place is always hopping, so you'll want to get here early to avoid a wait, especially on weekends. What's everyone so excited about? The chicken, of course.
Luckily, there's plenty of seating, but be prepared for a bit of a wait on a Friday or Saturday night.
This chicken isn't typical run-of-the-mill fried chicken.
It starts out fresh - they'll never, ever serve you frozen chicken here! Then it's dipped in buttermilk and pan-fried until the outside is perfectly crisp and the inside is tender and juicy. This might possibly be the best pan-fried chicken on the planet.
The question isn't whether or not the chicken is delicious...it's how hungry are you? Depending on how much chicken you can put away, you'll order the Mom, the Pop, or the Junior.
The Pop comes with a breast, thigh, leg, wing and back - five pieces of juicy chicken. The Mom comes with just three pieces - the breast, your choice of a leg or thigh, and your choice of a wing or back. The junior is just two pieces of chicken - a leg and a wing. All three dinners also include French fries and a corn muffin with butter.
We can't imagine that you'd ever need anything but the fried chicken here at Lucky Wishbone, but there is another menu item that brings in the customers: the hand-pressed burgers.
The extra-lean, 100% ground beef is hand-pressed for the most incredible burgers you've ever tasted. With eight different burgers on the menu, you're certain to find one that tempts your tastebuds.
Whether you enjoy the delicious pan-fried chicken dinners or the world-famous burgers, your meal at Lucky Wishbone Restaurant will definitely make your week better.
If you're not in the mood to cook on a weeknight, or you're ready to treat yourself to a night out on a weekend, Lucky Wishbone's got you covered. And, if you want to take your chicken home to eat, you can order your chicken to go. Get the 8 piece, 15 piece, or 25 piece meal that comes with a pint of coleslaw, five rolls, and honey.
Visit Lucky Wishbone seven days a week. It's open Monday through Thursday from 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m., Friday and Saturday 10:30 a.m. to 11 p.m., and Sunday 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.
