Roast chicken, the simplest of dishes, can also be the best. Wright's Farm has 75 ovens that yield about one ton of it every night. If there happens to be someone in your party who is allergic to chicken, steak is available (ordered by less than 1% of customers).

This impressionistic photo gives some sense of the delirium induced by being inside Wright's. When your table is ready you are directed to one of several booming dining rooms, where a hostess takes the lead as staff members rumble past with carts of dinner.

The gift shop has three different cash registers to handle crowds.
