Best burger!

This is another reincarnation of Ray's. This is not burgers-only, although burgers are still the best thing on the menu (just ask President Obama and his staff)! Choice of regular fries or sweet potato. Choose the burger, choice of toppings, choice of cheese, and extras - just wonderful. Go for... read more

If you are a steak lover, this is the place - any cut, any size - cooked exactly the way you ordered it. The wait staff knows their meat and can offer useful suggestions. This is a place to take SERIOUS eaters.

Used to be Ray's Hell Burger but is now the Hell burger in Ray's the third. We absolutely LOVE the burgers here that are dripping with goodness. Affordable with a 10 oz burger starting at 11.00. Good fries and onion rings as well. The atmosphere is simple. Nothing fancy with paper baskets and plastic cups.

We hadn't been here for awhile but I was favorably impressed with the food. i had the little-devil size B.I.G. Poppa, which was more than enough for me! Very tasty and well prepared although the presentation sort of surprised me -- this big ol' burger on a large white plate looked a little lonely without any sort of garnish surrounding... More

My 13 year old grandson tried out the burger with peanut butter and bacon - and liked it. The 6oz burger certainly looked bigger than 6 ounces. I had the tri tip sandwich which had a fusion of wonderful favors. It was fantastic! We found this our last night which was too bad - we would have returned to try... More

The manager (Asian male) was very rude. I ordered a crab soup (overpriced) and I got a potato and corn soup, not a single piece of crab. I went to the counter to raise my concern with the manager and all he said was "ok.." in a condescending way. Terrible service and the food was not good at all.

This place gets 5 stars as a burger place but 4 as a restaurant in general. The service is good, the ambience not so good, but the burgers are truly amazing. Although I haven't seen the list of the top burger places in the U.S. I am not surprised this place ranks at the top.

We liked the burgers. Very good burgers. The restaurant didn't appear to be very clean to us. The atmosphere is not great. Although it was a decent meal I'm not sure you get the value for what you pay for.

I read in the news that this restaurant ranked #21 in the country for their burgers. Since it is in reasonable driving distance I had to find out for myself. I also read several TripAdvisor reviews just to get an idea of what to expect. We were greeted by a host and taken to a table where we were given... More
