Superb

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.

Excellent burgers & great stop on the way to Montpelier -- truly fantastic burger! I haven't seen that much cheese on a burger since I don't know when! Home made, tasty, yummy and did I mention the cheese?!? WOW! Good stuff!! Great for kids & families & even 'foodies' -- those are some excellent burgers! Decor was cute - pics... More

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

Located on Main Street, across the tracks from the train station. The menu is simple as they concentrate on burgers, fries, and hot dogs. Order at the counter and they will bring the order to your table. Nice, simple restaurant.

I enjoy eating lunch here while working in town. Delicious BLT, home made sweet potato fries and real sweet tea! Friendly staff too!

I was with a massive group of about 40 swimmers and we decided stop here. The burgurs were incredibly juicy and they were THE BEST i have ever eaten, the fries were good too but are over shadowed by the entrée. The service could be seen as slow if you have a large order but that is due to the... More

We pass near Orange, VA occasionally and this will be our preferred stop from now on. The menu is fairly simple, burgers, dogs, sandwiches and salads. We watched the cook press fresh patties on the griddle, no frozen stuff. The tomatoes and lettuce were fresh and crisp. The food was delish, honestly one of the best burgers I've ever had.... More

Wise Guys is the go-to place for a fresh-made hamburger and other great ready-to-eat simple meals. It is family-owned and operated, so they have your best interests at heart. The service is somewhat self-serve after you place your order, but you dont have to wait for a waitress/waiter to refill your drinks, and it is extremely family friendly. Love the... More

Excellent. Excellent. Excellent. Best place in the whole area, hands down, to get a burger. It beats out all local restaurants and I'd even say most chain restaurants. The fries are amazing, and you definitely get plenty of food for your money.
