During our recent trip to Del Rio, we had dinner here two nights in a row. We had the KC for Two, but our dinner guests each had other things from the menu: Grilled Quail, Shrimp, and the Chicken Fried Steak, and they all said their food was good too. The staff was friendly and helpful. We look forward to... More

We each had a New York Strip steak that was perfectly cooked. A great salad bar and two different soups. Excellent service by staff that have worked at Wright's for many years. A great steakhouse experience.

The new owner has retained the old menu but is updating the interior. There's a new wood floor (good riddance to the carpeting) and brighter wall paint. It still needs a bit more updating like painting the HVAC ducting (or somehow hiding it) and getting rid of the dark paneling. But at least the wood floor looks great and the... More

It is out by Lake Amistad but the drive is worth it The salad bar has soup and fresh beans that are to die for. The chicken fried steak is for a huge appetite and is fabulous. The mashed potatoes are to write home about. The steaks are fresh and cooked to order and have been perfect every time. Wait... More

Four couples had to wait on getting each order right had to send back a couple. Steak was pan fried and way over priced. Will not return.

We have been eating here for 20+ years and always enjoy our meal. Some people may be put off by the decor, which is admittedly outdated and purely functional. However, the food is always tasty, and portions are large. Try the onion. Rings and chicken fried steak--they are the the specialty of the house! KC for 2 is also great!

Very easy to give a review; poor service, several meals at our table had to be sent back to be properly prepared. Very slow to get the meals out.

It is true that the carpet and decor is dated, but who eats carpet? I had the chicken fried steak and my wife tried the chopped sirloin. Both were excellent. The soup and salad bar are a great meal by themselves.

To cook a medium rare steak doesn't seem to be that monumental of a task. Yet Wrights got 3 tries and botched it. So one would think good customer service would make it all "right". Nope! So they steak was removed from the beal & I was charged $6.95 for a salad bar because I had a few pieces of... More
