i'VE BEEN GOING WRIGHTS FOR 60 YEARS. The food is consistent. It is good. The prices are good and service is good. I'vs probably eaten over 1000 super burgers,

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

Please refrain from frequenting this business until they at least require employees to wear face masks. My teenage daughter and her friend were getting ready to walk in but had to leave. Only one employee bothered to wear a mask.

I've been here before about 2 years ago. Google said take out only but we called and the dining room was open (even with COVID). My son loved the phone system to call in the order and the food was excellent and plentiful. It's one...of those "must do" if in the area.More

Actually came across this drive-in (not thru TA) but by driving thru town avoiding traffic on I-81. Couldn’t resist the quaintness of this place. We turned around to come back to eat here. Many things about this place is appealing: a local restaurant, not a...chain, customer service, & the FOOD-excellent!! We enjoyed it so much that on our return trip we made sure we stopped here again!! Next trip to VA.... we’ll be stopping again!!More
