All posted Sunday hours are incorrect and we were told owner refuses to update sites. Walked in five minutes after 8pm when supposedly open until 9pm and were dealt with rudely. Bummer is we are from out of state and it was our only chance...to eat there.More

We ordered from our car and enjoyed old-time car dining! I thought the BBQ sandwich was really yummy.

All the hype from Trip Advisor and Triple D and food was SOOO disappointing, especially the macaroni salad, no flavor and runny.

Went for a late lunch so it wasn't terribly busy. Had a cheeseburger and a chocolate shake. It did not disappoint. This place has been here since the 1950's. It's very cool. Service was quick and we even bought a t-shirt.

A time-traveling treat to eat at Wright's Dairy Rite. Pull into a parking space and order over the speaker, your food will be brought to your car by their friendly staff. I think they also have indoor seating where you can order by a phone...on the wall next to your table. We had burgers and onion rings and they were tasty and not at all like a fast foot chain. Wish I was back there right now.More

This place is trying to survive on nostalgia and its past glory. When the food is average -at best- and the service slow, you have to wonder what's going on. In fact, in just between the visit of my daughter and I here in late...May and mid-July as I write this review, the website for Wright's has gone away. My daughter and I had hamburgers, a Superburger, a barbecue sandwich, fries, onion rings, sodas, and milkshakes. The only high points were the barbecue and the milkshakes. They were on a par with Kline's in town. Or, Cook-Out, just about anywhere. Both the fries and onion rings were mediocre. The burgers were barely OK. In addition, the service was painfully slow. Summation: Not worth your time or money. Paging Norma Desmond...More

Went on Sat. nite. Busy as usual and not our first visit at all. Girl taking orders talked so fast you could hardly understand her. EVERYBODY around use was asking her to repeat orders several times. Us included. We waited. Waited some more. People who...placed orders after us got their orders. FINALLY ours came. NOT COMPLETE. She did not give us part of our order. By the time we got onion rings, which were sitting in grease we were ready to go. Spoiled our dinner. When asked what my friend wanted on her sandwich, she said everything and the girl taking the order said we don't have everything. Come on now!!!!! Get somebody who knows what they are doing!!!!!More

Three people ate and three people hated what was called food. Really the most terrible chicken sandwich I have ever had. Another people had a hamburger and had a hard time finding the meat. Third person had a cold streak sandwich--should have been hot. Really...go some place else.More

If you come here order the hot dogs for sure!! The Dogzilla is amazing. The only thing we didn’t like was the onion rings. We were too full for dessert, but they have a good selection.

Had the Super Burger and milkshakes. Cars just kept coming in and we knew we’d found a local favorite. Old fashioned, drive up, order thru the intercom and meal comes to your car on a tray. Fun, affordable, tasty.

If you've ever enjoyed the old school A&W Drive Inns, this is the place for you. Drive up and place your order and the servers run the food out to your car. Nothing fancy, but the burgers, dogs, and ice cream were very good. I...had an egg salad sandwich that really hit the mark. Friendly service that even surpasses In-N-Out. In business since 1952 and no signs of slowing down. Don't miss this on your way down I-81.More

Went for the first time yesterday, for lunch. It was PACKED but we were able to find a slot. Good old-school food (crinkle fries! flat burgers! thick milkshakes!) that you order through a speaker. A very polite young man -- wearing a mask -- brought...us our food. The whole experience was enjoyable & the food was good. A wee bit pricey, but worth it for the unique experience & cool factor.More
