“Love This place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

Travel back to a classic drive-in! It is great! The food is wonderful and traditional drive-in food. Not much has changed over the years at Wright's. The prices are good and it is nice experience for the whole family!

“Great Diner!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

Who doesn't love this hangout joint? When I'm in town during the summer it's always a must on the to-do list!

“Old -Fashion Fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

loved the milkshakes,onion rings were disappointing. We thought phoning in our order was fun(and a blast from the past), but the wait for our food was a little longer than we wanted it to be.

“Not my favorite but fun for out-of-towners”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012

I've been here several times, being from the area. I think that the food is good but nothing special. The burgers and shakes are pretty good. Absolutely do not order a salad, it's the equivalent to a wendy's side salad. What makes this place special is it's history in the area and how they take pride in keeping it alive. It's also right across from the old prison/new condos so you also have a great view.

“What a find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

In Staunton on business, and I saw an online advertisement for this place. The more I researched, the more I knew I had to go! It is a great blast from the past - friendly people, great greasy food, and a super old atmosphere.

I ordered the Carolina Burger with Onion Rings. The burger was a handmade patty with chili, onions and slaw - YUMMM!! The onion rings are also made right there on site. Everything was EXCELLENT!! I can't wait to be back in the area to return to Wright's!
