Love this place

Quick stop for some burgers on the go. Yummy. Service was excellent. This really is a great place with a lot of history. Decor is very fun.

This family owned restaurant is Mom & Pop shop dining at its finest. Amazing atmosphere, cool phones to call in orders, a juke box that never quits, great food and great service. Loved Sandy and the whole gang! We will be back!

Okay, we were told that one specialty was grilled cheese (white bread, American orange-colored cheese), and we went anyway. The atmosphere is 1950's drive-in, with dining inside in formica, vinyl seating with plastic & Styrofoam for utensils/dishes. The place is crowded and often noisy, and the grilled cheese as expected. Our friends love it, so we obliged. Only go if... More

Some of the best soft serve I've ever had. Delicious, smooth, creamy. Not the least bit thin or icy. Had a classic banana split. Whole split banana, not half like so may others. Incredible vanilla ice cream with all the right toppings and four big plops of whipped cream. Heaven in a dish for $4.95

Been living in the area thirty years so have visited Wright's many times. Lately I will admit the quality of the food has improved. The service is usually fast and friendly. A nice change from the usual fast food fare. A trip to drive inns of yesterday. Will continue visiting.

We stopped just for dessert, and we were not disappointed. We sat outside, were served very quickly, and enjoyed some delicious desserts!

Have grabbed a bite several times from here. Fun if you want that old timey drive up, order, and be served. I usually grab and go. Have never been let down. The best cheeseburgers in town. Good desserts as well. Look forward to going again...and again...

My husband and I came here on a date. I had never been and he hadn't been in a long time. Im not sure if parking on the drive-in side was what messed us up, but we parked there (in a parking spot by the grass) and saw a side entrance first. We walked in there and it turns out... More

Great burgers, fries and onion rings. And Al met us at the door, recognized us as out of towners and personally welcomed and seated us. The music was wonderful. Just wish we had left room for ice cream.

I stopped here with my family on a road trip to Smith Mountain Lake. Approximately 5 minutes from Route 81 - It's a fifties-style soda shop/diner. They offer both curb-side & dine-in service. The staff is friendly & the restaurant is clean. We enjoyed a patty melt, Monster burger (Wright's original), bacon cheeseburger, Tater tots & a Wright's special beef... More
