We were traveling for the weekend and decided to give Wise Guys a try for lunch. Burgers were great and shoestring fries were very generous portions! Had a side of spicy ranch for dipping which was also yummy! Husband loved the BBQ on his burger! Great, inexpensive place for lunch!

Local rsturuant located down town by the visitors center and the small water fountain park. Really good burgers made fresh with plenty of fries. Great taste. Found the atmoshere to be dased around comics (Wise Guys) and many great one liners and jokes printed everywhere. If your by the visitors center and looking for lunch stop here

My family, including two very hungry teenage boys, stopped in Orange at the spur of the moment and happened upon Wise Guys. The restaurant is on main street America. We were heartily greeted by all the folks behind the counter. We wanted burgers and they explained that we could have them any way we wanted them with any of their... More

We had the regular burgers and fries and a fountain drink for lunch. The burger was ok. I think it was a little under-done. The fries too seasoned and thin. And the worst part was that within an hour, while on tour at James Madison's Montpelier, I got horrible stomach cramps and had to rush to the bathroom. Had an... More

We three had different burger toppings, one the full compliment, others with grilled onions. All were perfectly cooked and very, very tasty. The supposedly world class fries were less than we had anticipated by a long shot. "Flat fries" were inedible from the cooking turning many to an overly crisp bit of burnt tater. The more traditional fries with their... More

A funky little deli-style burger/sandwich shop in the historic district of Orange VA. The chicken salad sandwich was the best I've had in a very long time.

I've never been inspired to write a restaurant review until today. I've had good burgers in places that are known for it. I've even been to food network stops for a burger. Nothing comes close to what I just ate at Wise Guys. I wish their store was closer to home.

We had burgers here just before snow fall, we sat at the front window, enjoyed our burgers as the snow fell on this quiet little town. The owners were super nice and the food was fabulous!
