I'd consider myself a burger connoisseur. These guys know how to make a good burger with great toppings. Messy, juicy, and delicious. The rolls aren't able to hold up to the burgers, so plan to wash your hands after you eat and try to keep your clothes drop free. The sweet potato fries were super, as well.

My daughter has been nagging me a long time to try this place and I am so glad I finally did. Why on earth would someone want to go to McDonald's when you could spend the same amount of money and go to Wise Guys instead? The restaurant is very relaxed with nostalgic photos of great movies and artists from... More

You know you are going to get a great burger when the locals are lining up for lunch! They have sweet potato fries, regular fries and something I had never heard of before, the "flat fry", which is sort of like a big crispy potato chip. The burgers were huge and delicious. The friendly wait staff and the good food... More

While out for a ride I stopped for lunch and took a chance on this cute burger and hot dog place. I had the single burger with cheddar cheese, bacon and jalapeños. The food was fresh and cooked to order. Lunch was awesome. The staff were great and made lunch enjoyable. I would stop there any time. Hope to try... More

This is a good little burger joint right next to the old railroad station. It's got a large eating area and an even larger adjoining area to eat. You can get a basic burger and some free toppings but cheese, bacon, grilled mushrooms and onions are a buck extra. There was an excessive amount of grease on my burger...not juice,... More

Wise Guys Burgers and Fries is at the end of the block, and not far from the old train station in downtown Orange. They have the BEST burger I have every had. Now I am a a big fan of Five Guys, but Wise Guys leaves them in the dust. Their burgers are so juicy! And their fries ... thin,... More

Surprised they have gluten free bread. Food is fresh and homemade dressings. Will return again. Fresh cut fries.

We stopped in here for a bite to eat on a road trip from DC to James Madison's Montpelier (we ate here after our tour). This was exactly what we needed! Made to order food that was priced right. Great service in a clean atmosphere. I expected a cheesy, lame burger joint, but this place is well decorated with a... More
