    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    If you are going for brunch get that signature Bloody Mary and the Cajun style shrimp and grits! Both have the perfect spice to it

    Corn cakes are a must. Also, this is the only place on earth that i'll eat biscuits & gravy. So good. Ask for Nick, he takes care of you.

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

    Crunchy French toast, sweet crunchy crispy - better to split/share as an add-on sweet side than as an entire meal.

    I was not pleased with the Mardi Gras buffet they offered on 2/28/17. Plus, I thought it was pricey at $24/pp. Plus, the Hurricane was not very good. I've had better experiences at Wishbone.
