If you like dry chicken...this is the place for you!! – Waste of time and money. You have to eat before getting there because the wait is ridiculous. Anyone who enjoyed Wright's food has no standards. First we got a taste of their warm and soggy salad. Then, the pasta and fries followed by the dry, undercooked, boiled and tasteless chicken. The only semi-edible thing to eat was the dry pasta and fries, but then again who can mess that up. The service was below satisfactory. We saw the server when he took our drink order and then had to call him over a few times to get the check, after awhile we finally had to asked another server for the bill. We left hungry and wouldn't go back even if the meal was free
Great Always....But Getting $$$ – I have been going to Wrights farm for over 20 years and always enjoy eating there. Their food and method of operation never changes which is just the way the people that love going there want it. My only complaint with Wrights is the fact that they have never accepted credit or debit cards claiming they "pass the savings on to you". Despite the fact I still feel their restaurant is great and will always be a customer there, I have to take note that their prices have steadily rose over the years and never level off for long. As of this writing the price was $10.75 per person. Not too heavy a price, but certainly no bargain anymore on a dinner of cheap items like bone in chicken, pasta, fries, and salad. Their prices have always gone up even while other restaurants seem to holding the line, AND excepting credit cards. I can't help but feel that Wrights is no longer passing on any savings to us, (if they ever did) but pocketing and profiting well on price increases.
Very Dissapointed – My family and I went to Wright's because my co-workers raved about it. I have never been so disappointed. I do not consider myself a "foodie" but I do expect a good meal. The chicken was very dry yet the skin was not crisp. The french fries were limp and greasy. I had much better fries at Five Guys in Marlboro, MA a hamburg joint. The dressing was almost tasteless. The pasta sauce was very acidic. The staff was very nice and the matter was resolved in satisfactory manner. We won't go back ever. All in all it was like a bad Sunday dinner at your elderly Grand MA's when her cooking skills are going along with her tastebuds.
Don't be a Snob – The first time I went to Wrights was 1961 when I was just a kid. The food was good then and even better now. I'll be honest, a couple of times out of probably 60 visits, the chicken breasts were rather dry. But I keep coming back and am not disappointed. Sure, I like fine dining, too, but Wrights is a down home family, note the word "family" restaurant. It's a place where people bring their kids, aunts uncles and grandmothers. So it is rather noisy and always crowded. It's always nice to sit at the bar and have a cocktail or two. They give you a token with a number and when they call your number, get ready to tie on the feedbag!
Pros: Great food and inexpensive (especially for "all you can eat"), friendly service, the gift shop is nice if you're into that sort of thing.
Cons: Crowded inside and out. You're lucky if you can find a spot to park
Give it a try. You won't be disappointed.
what's the fuss? – i have been hearing/reading rave reviews of this establishment so i thought it was finally time to check it out for myself. i have concluded that the reviewers to whom i was exposed were totally high when they ate here! KFC would've tasted much better! the chicken was nothing special, no "secret" recipe. the rotisserie at Shaw's would be comparable. fries were soggy masses of oily potatoes; Burger King fries are way tastier & crispier! the salad was limp and reddened with some non-descript dressing. bread...ahhh...bread is good, i mean, how can you really screw that up? the place is like a loud pubiscient cafeteria with lunch lady waitressing. you don't have to believe me; spend your hard earned fortune and check it out for yourself...especially if you're high!
Stay away – Huge disappointment!!!! On our second visit, we encountered at least two insect sskittering across the table, the "chicken" tasted like fish, lettuce was brown and wilted, it felt like we were in a cattle drive...waitress was pleasant, and understanding...management was not...stated if we didnt like it, we didnt have to come back...seems like they rely on a regular crowd who will forgive the shortcomings, despite the lack of quality.
Bella's up the road a very pleasant affordable alternative
Editorial Review by Christy Buena – Locals flock for the raosted chicken meal at the restaurant that offers fast service and affordable food.
Been disapointed lately – We used to go every week but now we don't go out of our way.. Fries have been hard and crunchy. They were much better dark and less crunchy. The chicken also is on the dry side now. Stale rolls are making way to the tables also. They need to get it back to what it used to be.
Disappointed!!! – Not like it use to be! I moved out of state and could not wait to go back to Wrights. I finally convinced my family to make the long drive only to find the pasta was crunchy-lettuce was brown and the chicken was dry! I was very disappointed!!!!
Yuck – This is really banal food! Every time I visit my family they want to visit this place and I have to throw a fit and tell them it is not good food...at best pedestrian at worst inedible.
