Lunch with Lois

As I have mentioned many times, I have been teaching water aerobics for many years.  Through all these years of teaching and all my classes, I have also made many wonderful friends.  Friends come in many different varieties and each one offers their own special relationship.  My friends Lois and JoAnna are two such people, both of whom I met quite a few years ago while teaching for the Town of Erie.  My friend Lois recently had a nasty fall and is currently in a rehab facility until she can get back to doing all the things she loves to do.  So JoAnna and I decided to bring her favorite lunch from our favorite restaurant, where the three of us have had many wonderful lunches and shared many good times, to help brighten her day and brighten her spirits.


Lois’ son Richard also joined us for lunch and we all feasted on The Wishbone’s famous fried chicken, along with cole slaw, baked potatoes and Texas toast.  YUMMY!  Lois said that was her best day and best lunch in quite some time.


Lois, JoAnna and I loved to meet for lunch at The Wishbone,  located in Westminster, CO. The Wishbone is a family owned and operated restaurant that has been around since 1963 and is still going strong today.  It was founded by Joe and Francis Lochi, and is now owned and operated by second and third generation Lochi Family members.  The Wishbone has a very loyal following and owe the success of their restaurant to the people who have frequented their restaurants throughout the decades; the very same people whom they call friends.  “Our five-plus decades of success is due to our incredibly supportive customers and dedicated staff. We have had the honor to serve many generations and look forward to serving many more”.  The Wishbone offers a large menu with a wide variety of good, wholesome food, but what it is really known for is its fabulous fried chicken.  Fried chicken from the Wishbone is some of the best fried chicken I have ever eaten.





Elvis is in the building … along with a lot of other fun and memorable facts and artifacts that were popular back in the early years of The Wishbone.  All of these help add to the fun, family atmosphere that has kept customers coming back for decades.


Though The Wishbone is famous for its fried chicken, there is so much more good food too.  Whether you dine in or dine out, your taste buds will most definitely be in for a treat when dining at The Wishbone.  The Wishbone is located on the corner of 97th & Federal, in Westminster, CO.  Go check them out at

    1. Texas toast is a specific kind of thick bread that is buttered and grilled. This is the definition I just pulled off Wikipedia for “why” it is called Texas toast. Texas toast may have been first created in 1946 at the Pig Stand in Denton, Texas, after a bakery order for thicker slices of bread resulted in slices too thick for the toaster and a cook, Wiley W. W. Cross, suggested buttering and grilling them as a solution.
