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

We we're very disappoint by our experience or lack there of. Our group of 6 pulled up just before 9 pm and looked over their extensive menu with our window down. No one greeted us or informed us that they were closed or ready to close. All the lights were on in the restaurant and drive in area. When we... More

My family ate here for the first time in Aug of 2013. We went into the restaurant instead of using their drive in spots outside of the restaurant. At first we were not sure how to order out food. We were told we had to use the phone in the booth to call our order in. This was a bit... More

Great 1950's style drive in with curb service and delicious milkshakes. we stumbled upon Wright's and were unable to resist stopping in for an old fashioned milkshake. They were delicious.

I recently went to wright's and they had advertised a chicken/tuna salad special with fries and drink for 4.49 on the their large menu chalk-board... However, it rang up as 5.59 which was ok. When my sandwich arrived it had a few chips in the basket and was maybe 1/3 full with Chicken salad which after a dose of salt... More

Nice diner, runs successfully for already many years. Personnel is very friendly, food was good. Owner came to talk a while with us because we were foreign. Was really nice:-) we found this place in the Frommers travel guide. It was well worth.

Where else can you get a foot-long, fries and free iced tea refills for less than $5??? Plus you have the fun of ordering from your table on a telephone to the kitchen, or sitting in your car and having the food brought to you!!! It's a fun, friendly, family spot...although the bathrooms need a serious makeover!!!
