Just happened to be in Orange and saw the sign so we gave it try. What a find. Burgers are fresh and juicy. Fries are fantastic. I will be back.

What a great find! My family of four loved it so much that we ate 2 meals there on a short weekend stay. The hamburgers were amazing--not your typical skinny meat patties. These are thick, juicy, and taste like you made them on your backyard grill. We added the swiss cheese, mushrooms and bacon and it was truly the best... More

Stopped here on a trip thru Virginia countryside and was very pleased. Quick service, friendly staff, good food. We really loved the shoestring fries. We got a order to go to munch on the road. Sandwiches were great. Do yourself a favor and stop by and try "Wise Guys!"

As residents of Orange, we are regulars at Wise Guys! They serve the basic burgers and fries and a variety of sandwiches, and a couple of soup and salad options. If you have ever been to "Five Guys", the burgers and fries at Wise Guys are similar. Fries are hand cut and fresh. The BLT is a winner - plenty... More

My burger was made to order exactly how I ordered it. The sweet potato fries were great (no salt the way I like them).

This restaurant is in a great location, lots of comfortable seating... big window views on main street in the heart of the burgeoning business district. The food: excellent and low cost... dependable, standard fare prepared well. We eat here often and never had a bad experience.

Think five guys, but locally owned and more attention to detail. Downtown Orange in historic district- great old building repurposed into gourmet burger joint. Go for lunch or dinner, take the kids. Great value for the money. Best burgers around!

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
