Customers have been cruising into Wright’s Dairy-Rite for over half a century, and the venerated burger haven shows no sign of slowing up.
This well preserved drive-in has 35 call box-ready car slips still serviced by burger-toting attendants and banks of booths inside outfitted with phones linked directly to the kitchen.
The Superburger summons a triple-decker helping of beef, cheese and Wright’s secret sauce, which theoretically predates the Big Mac by over a decade. The daunting Dogzilla reveals a massive frank buried beneath all the toppings you can handle (a battery of ketchup, onions, chili and cheese is best described as “messy bliss”).
