Wright's is a drive-in where you can order by speaker from your car or go inside and sit at table and have wait service. I went inside and the service was excellent and friendly. Wright's has been around since the fifty's. I love these old nostalgic drive-in restaurants and can't help but give... read more

This place is awesome. You can order from your car or sit at a table and pick up the phone to order from your table. Either way your burgers are delivered to you promptly. Feels like you're in the 50's.

We enjoy the privacy of having dinner in the car, and have visited here since we were first married nearly 19 years ago. The food is excellent comfort food, and all the desserts are a special treat.

Wright's is a Staunton tradition. People have been driving their vehicles to Wright's for the drive-in for decades. The food is basic drive-in fare but they also have chicken, shrimp and the Wright's Sub is very good. Think Sonic Drive-In with better food and atmosphere! You can also eat inside.

Pushing the button on the speaker takes me back to my first drive-in. The menu is quite extensive, but I go for the basics, a Carolina burger with slaw, onion rings and a chocolate shake. All were pretty good, the onion rings as good as the Varsity in Atlanta, both make their own rings daily.

This is a fun place to visit. Has not changed from the late 50's. Still has a jupe box on table. It is more of a shake and hamburger place. The food is good and you can still park outside and call a order and they will bring it. Ran into one of the Stattler brothers there. Jim

As we were passing by Staunton, we stopped at Wright's both Friday and Saturday night. Great food, great service, reasonable prices and almost a trip back in time to a simpler place. We ate inside, but if you would like, you can order form your car and the car hop will bring your food straight to your vehicle. Well worth... More

We stopped in for some ice cream...we would probably good back for lunch if we have the opportunity. We were not familiar with the establishment, and went inside. We were not aware of the opportunity to experience the drive-in service with the car hop. That would have been fun! We went inside, and placed our order, and then took a... More

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!
