Good burger value!

There is no reason NOT to spend a couple of extra dollars and get a real burger, cooked and served by friendly people, rather than going the fast food route. Wise Guys does not keep late hours, but make a point of dropping in for good food, very generous servings of fries, and speedy service. This... read more

By far the best darn hamburger I and my boyfriend have ever eaten in a restaurant. They make their own fries; white potato and sweet potato. And more than you can eat in one sitting but you eat it all anyway because the food is fresh and simple and good tasting. Nice clean place, unpretentious, friendly staff. I have other... More

Traveling down 1-95 was getting to be too much, so we took a detour and ended up in Orange VA. So glad we did. This place was great. Staff and owner were REALLY nice. Best burger ever!

Found this place on Trip Advisor and went with a group of out-of-towners. Super friendly staff, really good burgers and fries. What more can you want? (If you are touring Montpellier, it is 7 minutes away)

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 held out for... 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.
