Best Non-Pizza Place to Feed a Crowd

Lucky Wishbone

Established in Tucson in 1953, Lucky Wishbone was already a local institution when the Tucson Weekly was founded in 1984. It thrives today in a half-dozen locations. It's got the same, '50s drive-in ambiance, sans car-hops, and essentially the same menu it started out with: guilty-pleasure-yummy, artery-hardening fried shrimp, fish, steakfingers and chicken—all are served with mountains of fries, plain white bread and sweet slaw like your great grandma's. Bring a crowd for the $14.35 family feast, and try a little of everything. The whole place is childproof, too.
