Wishbone Chicago, IL Northside Added to “Rated Kid Friendly” Restaurant Directory

Wishbone Northside

At Wishbone’s restaurant on the north side of Chicago they say that their food is Southern Reconstruction Cooking. As one patron said, “cheese grits and biscuit stole my heart. Yummm. I haven’t had such awesome cheese grits since I lived in South Carolina. The decor is also fun and kind of quirky. It’s definitely the kind of neighborhood restaurant I would frequent if I lived in Lakeview”. There is a kids menu which includes a Black Angus burger, chicken nuggets, the Rabbit Patch (vegetable platter) and quesadillies (as they call them). Kids receive a coloring mat and crayons. Some of the kids art work is hung on the walls. Visit Wishbone

Animal Wall at Boulder Junction Grill

As one mother wrote, “Every year we let our kids pick any restaurant they want for their birthday. For the fourth year in a row, my daughter, aged 6, has picked this restaurant. It amazes me that they keep picking it. …. they enjoy Boulder Junction for the animals on the cliff, and also for the tiny pool they have inside with fish. They have a good variety on their menu, and the food and service have always been good.” Visit Boulder Junction Charcoal Grill
