In addition to being a dog on PBS who taught literary history to children in the ‘90s, Wishbone is also a fried chicken restaurant in University City. They batter their chicken in buttermilk and a crunchy pretzel coating, and it’s completely delicious whether you get it in wing form or as a basket of chicken tenders. It’s a fast-casual place, so there aren’t a ton of tables inside, but if it’s a nice day there are usually a few tables outside where you can chase your spicy donfire sauce-covered wings with a fountain soda.
