Great burgers and I've always liked taking visitors, even to the old location, as its kinda a DC thing. Went with a friend when I moved back here a few weeks ago. I was pretty stoked to see the new place. Burger was great but there wasn't any heat in the dining area, so that sucked, having to keep our... More

Your enjoyment at Ray's depends entirely on your expectations. The meat at Ray's and the various specialty burgers (including bison) are at the top of their game. Tasty fries are a close second. They seem a little pricey on the bottled (20 oz) sodas and have lost any "wow" factor by serving the lonely burger on a platter-sized plate. Things... More

Upon walking into Ray's, you'll see several free bags of popcorn. I'm not sure if this is the norm or if it's because the place is under construction. Nice gesture and good popcorn, but on to the real stuff... I ordered a Hell Burger ("Grilled" seasoning) with a side of bone marrow that everybody raves about. Service was fine and... More

Went there recently for lunch. In this case, the $12 burger is actually worth it! Soooo juicy. Busy place but decently fast service.

Excellent burger and sweet potato fries, you have the option ordering by waiter or you can go up to place your order at the counter, pick a table with no issue with the owner. Their is free parking in a garage on left side of N. Quinn Street from Wilson Blvd. Get your ticket validated in the restaurant.

The interior reminded me of a Chinese take out restaurant form the 80's. Food is overpriced and not that good.

Went here with my brother. We ordered the mushroom, onion and bacon burger, the regular steak and cheese, and an order of tater-tots. The tots were really cooked well (crispy and salty). The burger was good, though the topping seemed to overwhelm the patty (perhaps if we had ordered the double the ratio would have been better). It was cooked... More

Ray's is listed as having one of the best hamburger's in Arlington. They are serious about that! My cheeseburger was cooked to order and tasted very good. The staff was friendly and everyone pitched in with whatever was needed. Great atmosphere and can't wait to come back.

We really enjoyed lunch at Ray's To The Third. We all had different burgers and enjoyed every bite of them. We also got onion rings and they were great. The burgers are huge and tasty. You will enjoy!
