Great ambiance! Great service! Food is affordable and tasty. The owner greeted us from a booth. This was our first time eating inside as we usually pull up to the drive-in part. When our kids were in school they always enjoyed stopping here when we were traveling. Worth the short drive off the exit. Lots of options for dining -... More

Been eating there for years. A Staunton institution since 1952. The food is always good and the service is fast. Prices are very reasonable.

Took my kids here a couple of days ago, we loved it. Very nice old fashioned dairy bar / burger joint. They actually have a fairly large menu with some variety, so anyone can find something if burgers aren't your thing. The burgers were very good, you can tell they are hand formed patties and tasted very fresh. The fries... More

The service is a little slow, but the food is well worth the wait. Burgers are homemade and not "mass produced" as are the salads and coleslaw. I highly recommend the barbecues and the potato salad. They have soup and great chili during the winter months.

Went on 18 yr anniversary vacation and had a fantastic lunch. Great Burgers, French Fries & Onion Rings. You have two choices: Inside as regular or delivery to your vehicle by a car hop.

Don't miss Wright's when you're in the area. It probably hasn't changed at all since the 50s, and you can still order from your car. That is one delicious hamburger!

We were glad to make the trek over to Wright's. We actually were driving north and wanted to stop at a non-chain resteraunt for lunch and we hit this goldmine of a place. retro feel and we enjoyed all the food. Meals were tasty and very reasonably priced (I thought I got set back in to the 60's Enjoy the... More

The service was nothing special, and the food was nothing special. The special element of the restaurant is its history and the old menus and photos from the 50s. It offers serviceable diner food. Compared to some of the restaurants in Staunton, it was good. That's not a high bar for a town in which a Google search for restaurants... More

We had been visiting historic places in Staunton, VA and were about to get back on the road but decided we needed to get some food first. My 13 year old grandson spotted Wright,s while we were trying to decide which way to go. So, we stopped to try it. We were all so glad we did. The food was... More

On our way out to West Virginia for a mini road trip and I was looking for fun places to stop along the way. I stumbled upon Wright's and I knew that every person in our group, young and old, would like it. My young kids loved the drive-in aspect but we opted to go inside and eat. It's a... More
