Wright's has some very good food and a great onion rings. Steak, chicken fried steak or hamburger steak. I recommend them all. Don.t pass on the salad bar.

Was in Del Rio for business and visited Wright's last night as the options are pretty slim here in Del Rio. The place was pretty full and the waitstaff, although understaffed, were pleasant and courteous. I ordered a Coke, came in a can with a glass of ice, and the Chicken Fried Steak. The CFS was about 10" long and... More

We had two separate items from the menu. The Chicken Fried Steak had a light, non-greasy batter and was cooked correctly. My wife's Hamburger Steak, actually a chopped sirloin was topped with a wonderfully caramelized onion slice & covered with a nice brown gravy. Mashed potatoes were buttery and light. All items on the salad bar were fresh and there... More

This is our favorite local steakhouse. The Chicken fry steak is always the best. The Stew, beans and okra bar is great. Mr and Mrs wright are always there to make sure everything comes out great. The decor has been the same since the 70s and bathrooms need remodeling but hey it's great food.

the fried oysters were light and fluffy, seasoned well. the onion rings were delicious -- and a large order. we split them up between four of us and had plenty. the music during dinner ( local duo group) was outstanding and made the whole evening a big hit. Recommend you go on weekend for the music.

Except for a small motel cafe off I-35 in central Oklahoma, this is the best chicken fried steak around and I've had chicken fried steaks from California to NY and all over in between. The place is not fancy inside or out but is not competing for a beauty prize. They serve huge portions of very good food at really... More

huge steaks! I had the 26oz T-Bone and my wife had the 16oz Ribeye. They were very good, we ordered them rare and they came excellently cooked. The onion rings were also huge with a light and crispy batter. There was also an adequate salad bar. For all that and 3 beers it came to $62 USD. That's good value... More

Unlike most reviewers here who put emphasis on decor (when you go to the movies, are you paying attention to the walls? Didn't think so) atmosphere, and a "view" (oh you connoisseurs of fine dining you!), this is a restaurant unparalleled in all of Del Rio. The food was tremendous, and just the right fit for a town like Del... More

The steaks are great, cooked with this amazing garlic flavoring. The atmosphere is quaint, with a display of old photos, country paintings and christmas ornaments; although the room is dark. If you are staying near or visiting the Lake this is a great place too eat. Been here several times and will continue to come back.

The K.C. for 2 is awesome and the salad bar is really fresh. The atmosphere is bland but cozy, the food makes up for it.
