Always stop by on my way home from Charlottesville (either went a sports game or doctor appointment). They have the best milkshakes I have ever had! Hot dogs are a huge mess and are truly amazing to taste! Hamburgers are so heavenly!!! Clean restrooms! Touch of 50's nostalgia where you use a phone to call in your order! Juke box... More

Being from California, my son loves this place when we make our annual road trip from Northern Virginia to our family reunion in Tennessee and back. We had a wonderful meal in a fun locale, whether eating at the drive-in outside or the jumping joint inside. The menu is larger than just your average burger joint, and he likes the... More

I had heard about this restaurant for years, but didn't know exactly where it was in Staunton (I live about 30 miles away). I stumbled across it while in Staunton on business, and was quite pleased. A real blast from the past. Orders are by remote speakers, with car-hop delivery. Very tasty hamburger, and the best chocolate milkshake I have... More

Always have enjoyed the simple things in life and this place is a local favorite. The atmosphere is great and the staff is very friendly. I had the Monster Burger and it was just that. Now I remember I used to get the Super Burger. Not a frozen mystery meat burger. You must try this place at least once.

We stopped in here for lunch during a day trip to the Frontier Museum. I had read reviews about Wright's on Trip Advisor. My sons (15, 12) and I thought the food was fine. Calling in the order was fun. The memorabilia was also fun to look at and to marvel at the prices back in the day. I think... More

Wright's is just a cool place to go. It's cheap. The food is just like it should be. I think their onion rings are as good as anywhere. You can park and order through the old timey speakers and have your order brought out to your car. Can eat inside or out. Today we ate outside. There was a huge... More

I've been eating at Wright's since I was a little girl. I still remember my papaw ordering the beans with diced onions, onion rings, (which are the BEST as well as hand battered.) and a hot dog. Wright's has added to their menu over the years.. I'm in love with their Carolina burger, it's amazing. What's also amazing? Their milkshakes!... More

We had heard so much about the famous Wright's Dairy Rite so we decided to check it out. The place is an old time drive-in with inside seating also. We did not order anything but ice cream and a milk shake that was okay. The staff and owner were very friendly and some of the customers had been going there... More
