Best Cheeseburger

Staying in Orange for a few days I was checking out some restaurant listings on Google Maps. I noticed a few restaurants downtown - near the old train station. Orange for as small as it is sure has plenty of franchise fast food joints. Thankfully none of them gave me a good feeling. So i'm glad I... read more

95 degrees, traveling between Civil War battlefields then it's lunchtime. The Orange visitors center gave us a selection of places in town, within walking distance from them even in 95 degree heat. We chose Wise Guys, a sharp looking white walls tin ceilings, a great menu. Don't expect to find exotic items or nouveau cuisine, think fast food done well.... More

We grabbed an early dinner here -- we're only patrons at the time -- and the staff were personable and kid friendly. Three good burgers, one good hot dog, and yummy, perfectly done fries. My son loved watching them put potatoes through the slicer to make more fries. And he loves the train that rumbled by right next door! Worth... More

I've eaten here several times and I'm addicted. I never get tired of Billy's burgers and fries! (A small fry serves 2+ really) I finally tried the hotdog after hearing such good things and I didn't regret it. Of course I had it with chili, cheese and onions. I don't know how to choose between the hot dog or burger... More

We ate at Wise Guys yesterday and had great cheeseburgers and homemade chicken and rice soup. The owner takes great care in picking his ingredients, including the condiments. Everything was tasty and great prices. If you like burgers come here rather than fast food places. Also, homemade cookies were great.

Wise Guys has the best burgers in the area. Think 5 guys but local and more delicious. Good for groups and families.

Great burgers with good flavors but bring out the napkins as they are big and juicy and when you ask for cheese, they don't skimp. Fries were good and this was the perfect place for lunch on the way to Montpelier. The crew and owner are friendly, fun, and efficient. We will be back.

It had been a year since we stopped at this location for their great burgers. We took a detour to this restaurant on our way to Massanutten Resort. In the heart of Main street next to the railroad tracks this cute place is on a corner. Just next door are nice shops. The place has two large seating areas with... More
