A Real Birthday Treat

Visitors owe it to themselves to check out this Staunton landmark. Still serving those good burgers, fries, and a wide assortment of foods since its origin in early 1950s. Wright’s is one of those early curb service spots—think of “Happy Days” or “American Graffiti.” My recent visit was my... read more

My husband (who is an ice cream fanatic) and I were travelling in Virginia when we passed Wright's. After noting that the same family has owned and operated the restaurant for 60 years in Staunton he said "we are turning around!" The parking lot was jam packed (a sure sign of good food in my book). . . and that... More

We stopped here after checking in to our motel. We had been on the road for 9 or more hours and found the recommendation on TripAdvisor. We were not disappointed. Charming place, where you order your food over the phone, yes, a real plugged into the wall phone placed at each booth. The burgers were tasty but the onion rings... More

I was in the foodservice biz for almost 20 yrs; have travelled the entire country & eaten in many of the nation's best restaurants. That said, we stopped here on a recent getaway to the area just to get a small, quick bite. We had heard the place had been there "forever" and was well regarded locally as an alternative... More

I remember going to the place in my childhood and I'm glad it's still around to take my son to. The place hasn't changed and that is what makes it so great. Sure, it looks a tad but run down but not in a bad way. It gives this place character and our shows that this place has been around.... More

We were on our way home and taking an overnight in town and found wright's dairy rite right here on tripadvisor! Meal was very good , 50s burger and fries . Onion rings are some of the best I've had anywhere. 40 bucks for family of 4 and left very full .

Whenever we visit Staunton, we stop there. On this weekend trip it was the first place we ate in upon arrival, and the last just before we left. I recommend the Superburger (double patty, triple bun, lean and perfectly cooked), a side of onion rings (fresh and never soggy), and a chocolate malted milkshake. Then you can be sure you're...

While there are many places to enjoy a good meal, not many take one back half a century in charm and style. Wrights Dairy Rite is very tasty and full of customers. Many tables have menus and special telephones for ordering. The food is made to order and takes a normal amount of minutes to be prepared. I enjoyed a... More

I found this place online, and was debating if we should go there. I am so glad that we did, it was great. The food was awesome, the kids meals come in a car box, and ice cream. The service was fantastic. We will be back.
