Sweet find! The Superburger was delicious! Onion rings were nice & crispy with not too much batter! I had to get a drink freeze with Orange Fanta that tastes like a dream sickle!! My friend got the Floats!! Yummy!!

This is a family owned business since the 50's that has drive in service (stay in your car) or dining room. If you choose to come inside you place your order over a phone that is at your table. Had a couple of shakes here in August which were both really good. Also, if you are into muscle cars, there... More

When you visit Wright's you are stepping back in time. An era your young ones probably don't know. Which is why you should go. A real juke box playing a large variety of music, bright leather booths and lots of stainless steel. All you need is a poodle skirt or a white tee and leather jacket. The food is simple... More

This a diner in the classic sense of having curb-side service, a juke box ,and prices that are better than reasonable. The foot long hot dog was great and loaded with all the extras. The hamburger was real fresh ground beef and not at all like the hamburger you get at typical fast food places.

A family run business that has been around forever. You dial in your order from phones at the booths. Original menus from past eras all around, great food and lots of it. Can also eat in your car. Think Sonic, but original. Parking is somewhat limited if you want to eat inside is the only small complaint.

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.
