If you have Never been to a Potato Chip Factory to see how those chips that we have been eating then you need to go to the RT. 11 Potato Chip Factory. The Factory isn't on RT. 11 but is off of Industrial Rd in Mt. Jackson. They have HUGE Windows to observe the Cooking process,Salting and Bagging Process and... More

Definitely call ahead to make sure that they are cooking the day you want to visit. They were making sweet potato chips the day we were there, and the smell was heavenly. It's fun to see how this small-batch factory works. You can look through windows at the processing operations and try samples of the various Route 11 flavors. We... More

I started going to Route 11 Chips at their original location years ago. Have since followed them to this new, and enlarged factory / store. First, excellent prices compared to what you will pay in many fancy stores away from this area. I have people in my office give me orders to pick up when I stop as its cheaper... More

We were scheduled to spend a week at Massanutten Resort, and were looking for things to do during our stay when I noticed an entry on one of the travel guide sites for the Route 11 Potato Chip Factory. We have enjoyed visiting other factories, and we love good potato chips, so we figured this was worth a visit. There... More

It was fun to watch a very simple operation. My Grandson enjoyed the free samples that came with the tour. It is just a cash register and overpriced chips if they are not cooking, so call ahead.

Visited for the first time today. We had a difficult time finding the place as signage is poor. We took a brief 'tour' and saw the chips being made. And we purchased several flavors in poly bags (the most economical way to buy the chips at their factory store). Before we made our purchase, we tried some samples and were... More

Near Shenandoah and Luray Caverns, this is a fun stop. The factory is more of a big building and there are platforms to let you peek at their operations. Call ahead to make sure they are frying the day you plan to visit. Free samples and fun to watch the machines at work but prices are higher than the local... More

We stopped here on our way down to the Shenandoah caverns. It is literally five minutes away. The operations at the factory are simple but impressive. We love the route 11 chips. If you have 30-45 mins to spare its worth the visit especially if you want to try the chips right out of production still warm.

We stopped by while traveling in the area-- got a nice informative tour inside-- could see the chips being made, seasoned and bagged through nice large windows. Free samples were offered and of course we had to buy some chips!

Stopped here while visiting Shenandoah caverns. Its close to the caverns and I 81. The tip is buying the large clear bags vs prepacked, much better value. Wish I bought more. I took the very first photo with the mascot, my camera phone pic wont upload oh well. We enjoyed all the samples!
