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

Met my family here as it is half way between our homes and was very pleasantly surprised. The staff couldn't have been more pleasant and helpful. We had a dog with us on the patio and they got us a water dish as well as opened an umbrella to give our group some shade.

We really enjoy coming to Wright's when we can! The other evening we enjoyed hot dogs, chicken tenders, and the pork BBQ. All of us thought our meals were tasty and reasonably priced. If you enjoy milkshakes their banana milkshakes are the BEST. Although we didn't order this ... someone ordered the hot fudge cake and it made me very... More

This is just an awesome place! Takes you back to the 50s. My husband and I thought this place was just neat and well.....amazing! They have a variety of food to choose from at very good prices. The music playing is a great touch as well.

And drive-in food cooked to order the way it used to be! Although we are locals, we had never before tried Wright's Dairy Rite, although we knew it has long been a Staunton institution. We drove in after being at my horse barn at dinner time and wanted a meal where we didn't have to go in. Where have we... More

Wright's Dairy Rite advertises on our local TV channel, so we thought we'd drive the 20+ miles for lunch. When we entered, we hear music from our past (the 1960s). The menu has items you'd expect at a dairy bar -- milk shakes, burgers, fries . . . but we also saw subs and soups. I ordered a Sausage Cheeseburger... More

While attending college I often found myself at Wright's getting a cheeseburger, fries and a shake as a meal when I wasn't feeling the dining hall. The employees that work here are always friendly and eventually would remember my exact order and my name. It was nice to know that that extra step made me feel at home to come... More
