“Pure Nostalgia”
Reviewed September 2, 2012

For those of us who remember drive ins, this place takes you back to the 50s/60s. Extensive menu, food brought to your car, prices are great, typical drive-in food, ...but that's what we came for while traveling through Staunton.

“LIKE STEPPING BACK IN TIME.”
Reviewed August 29, 2012

I grew up eating at Wright's over 40 years ago. We were in Staunton late on Mondsy evening and decided to go to Wrights for our dinner. Still looks the same ; hasn't changed in 40 years. we enjoyed the Superburgers, homemade onion rings and milkshakes.

“A fun return”
Reviewed August 16, 2012

This is the place to go to feel as if you are back in the 50s again. The food is good, but the fun of ordering from your car and having it brought to you can't be beat. Always a must when in Staunton. The banana splits are yummy.

“Loved the old drive-in eatery!”
Reviewed June 9, 2012

Hard to find an old family owned drive-in eatery these days. The food selection was great - didn't even have to leave the car! Really enjoyed the food and visit.
