An apparent Rhode Island staple, Wright's has been roasting chicken the same way for 40years. I'm pretty sure, that this place is big enough to house the entire state of Rhode Island for dinner. But before you go here for a meal there are a few things you need to understand. It's ten bucks a head, they can seat 24,000 people, it has a gift shop the size of a toys r us, 4 bars, a casino, and a parking lot the size of an entire walmart. Driving thru the middle of nowhere Rhode Island and coming across this place just doesn't make any sense. Some how thousands of people show up everyday, its simply not believable until you go. Table for 50? Not a problem. I've been told if you show up during dinner time to expect a 2hr wait. geesh
Wright's only serves one thing and there is no menu. Family style chicken dinner.So the only thing you come here for the chicken. You come with a big group and prepare to have chicken, pasta, salad, fries, rolls, and ice cream all tossed at you for as long as you can consume them. They bring everything to your table in big bowls and platters and if your table needs more they bring it. It's nothing fancy and the food is all pretty basic. Its good solid food and nothing more. The chicken is very moist and tender. They must be doing something right. The fries and rolls are good too. Anyone who has been here will tell you to go at least once. It's definitely worth checking out. I never would have thought something like this could even exist but my wife's family has been going for years. Wright's is about an hr south of Boston and 3hrs from Kingston NY.
It was definitely a winner winner chicken dinner
