Wishbone : Fried Chicken Heaven in Philadelphia

We all may have our own opinions when it comes to food, but no one can argue that anything that’s won a Best of Philly award isn’t top notch. So when we say that Wishbone won the award for “Best Chicken Fingers,” you know this place takes their food seriously. Not convinced yet? This joint has also been recognized by Zagat, Good Day Philadelphia and Philly Eater, among other local food publications.


Fried chicken is at the heart of the menu. Coated in buttermilk, cider, pretzels and spices, every juicy bite of Wishbone’s tenders and wings is filled with a flavor punch. The chicken is cooked from scratch in small batches, so it’s always fresh and ready for a dunk in one of many homemade dipping sauces.

Hand pies, mac and cheese, sandwiches, salads, biscuits and bakery items are also available.

To drink there’s a bottle shop with vintage sodas and over 300 beers and ciders to choose from.


Wishbone is a unique type of establishment that is a cross between quick service and fine dining. High quality ingredients and preparations are matched convenience, delivery options and catering.
