Stopped by while visiting nearby Luray Caverns with the parents. Got a brief introduction and tour from one of the staff, who was very personable and answered our questions. Allow 10-15 minutes to watch the chip making process from beginning to end, and then another 15 minutes to sample chips and decide which ones to buy!

My family visited and unfortunately missed watching the chipping. There were plenty of tasty samples though and we all got to pick out a few favourites. The dill pickle chips are particularly yummy, and the crab chips a great regional treat. The spicy chips brought my husband to his knees - not an easy feat! Get the five gallon tub... More

Kids enjoyed the trip and learned about how to make chips. They loved the free chips sampling, specially. :) Chips Factory and visitor area were very clean. Fry viewing is also free to watch.

We were in the area from out of state and saw the factory was nearby. Saw the Route 11 chips in area stores and were a little curious about the product. You can view the process of making and bagging the chips through big windows. Samples are set out to try and bags of various flavors are available. Also large... More

A short tour is given by a knowledgeable employee. You are able to see the entire process through huge glass windows (except the washing/peeling room), even the hand seasoning. Samples are set out of each brand that they make/carry. I now have a new favorite, white sweet potato chip! You too, can purchase your favorites on site.

We stopped in to watch them cook chips but their bagging machine was shut down so we couldn't see the process in operation. A nice employee did explain the process to us and we sampled and bought some chips to take home.

Did a short stop here just before they closed for the day and it was really nice to see the production. We also got to taste some samples and bouth a bunch of small bags of different chips. Cool place for a short break.

There's not much "there" there, but if you love their chips, it can be interesting. There's no tour, but you can look through windows and watch them fry, season, and package their chips. You can sample their products and buy their chips in a variety of sizes, including large tins. There's also a few branded products as well. It's more... More

We stopped here because of their ratings on Trip Advisor and we were pleasantly surprised by the hospitality shown by the folks in the show/tasting room as well as the staff running the machines who took time to give the visitors a seemingly heart-felt wave. It was fun to learn about the making of kettle style chips and of course... More

Neat little stop off of Rt 81. If you are a fan of chips, give it a try. Reminded me a lot of the Ben & Jerrys tour I took in VT. There are lots of free samples and you can get a few bags for the road.
