After hearing so many friends recommend Wise Guys, we finally stopped in this afternoon. My husband had a"regular" burger with Swiss, bacon and grilled mushrooms, and hand-cut sweet potato fries. I had a "regular" burger with cheddar cheese, lettuce, tomato, onions, pickles, catsup and mustard, and hand-cut shoestring fries. Our daughter ordered the grilled chicken sandwich with hand-cut shoestring fries.... More

Tasty burgers are just the right size and the hand cut fries are yummy too. Great place to stop in Orange on the main road.

We were traveling by Orange, VA at meal time and wanted something other than average fast food. We found this place downtown and gave it a try. The menu is not extensive, but our selections were excellent. Other reviewers mention the burgers, but we opted for soup on a cool, rainy day. One was chicken and rice; the other beef... More

While visiting the beautiful rolling hills in this area of Virginia we stop in for a burger at this small downtown eatery. The atmosphere is a reclaimed building circa 1930s or 40s. High tin ceilings and very roomy. The staff was friendly and the burgers outstanding. 2 cheeseburgers with friends and soda $19 plus tip. Not bad for good food... More

I'd consider myself a burger connoisseur. These guys know how to make a good burger with great toppings. Messy, juicy, and delicious. The rolls aren't able to hold up to the burgers, so plan to wash your hands after you eat and try to keep your clothes drop free. The sweet potato fries were super, as well.

My daughter has been nagging me a long time to try this place and I am so glad I finally did. Why on earth would someone want to go to McDonald's when you could spend the same amount of money and go to Wise Guys instead? The restaurant is very relaxed with nostalgic photos of great movies and artists from... More

You know you are going to get a great burger when the locals are lining up for lunch! They have sweet potato fries, regular fries and something I had never heard of before, the "flat fry", which is sort of like a big crispy potato chip. The burgers were huge and delicious. The friendly wait staff and the good food... More

While out for a ride I stopped for lunch and took a chance on this cute burger and hot dog place. I had the single burger with cheddar cheese, bacon and jalapeños. The food was fresh and cooked to order. Lunch was awesome. The staff were great and made lunch enjoyable. I would stop there any time. Hope to try... More
