We arrived after church & the place was packed, so we waited a little while for a table. Our meals took about 40 minutes to arrive. One of the "regulars" told us to double check on our order since they thought it was very unusual...More

We entered the restaurant, and not too long afterwards, the owner greeted us, talked with us about the Redskins, and made sure we felt at home. He brought our family a sample of the onion rings ... they were great, especially if you like your...More

I've gone to Wright's since I was a child with my grandparents. I love going there because of the obvious history staring you right in the face as soon as you pull into the parking lot. I was told stories by my grandmother (who also...More
