I've been a fan of the establishment since the original location. It's still worth going to and having one of their regular or alcohol-enhanced shakes. The burgers are excellent and worth the wait. I recommend going here for a good burger and shake combo if you are in the area.

Great burgers and shake! Also the onion fries and french fries were very tasty. I thought that it was quite overpriced, and our family of 5 (2 of them ordering kids' meals) spent $80 (including tip) on hamburgers and shakes (we didn't have alcohol). I don't think it was worth the price.

I have been going to this place at least twice a year since when it was the smaller version of Ray's Hell Burger across the street. Even thought the location is different, the food has not changed. Still hands down the best burgers around combined with the sweet potato fries and the 7cheese mac-n-cheese and you have a winner! Better... More

My husband suggested we eat at Ray's after he'd been there on a business trip. Best burger I've ever had!!!! Great service and friendly staff. My husband and father ordered the big punisher and both loved it. If my dad says it's hot that means HOT! I had a little devil with lettuce, tomato, and grilled onion with roasted garlic.... More

Went here with some friends, they had a round table to accommodate us. We got there as soon as they opened, 11:30. It was initially vacant, but towards the end of our meal the place was packed and had a line going out the door. The menu was straight forward, burgers and shakes. My friends had the devil and soulfood... More

Friends were in from out of town and we were ready for some indulgence. Boy did this place fit the bill. The decor and atmosphere were super casual. Service was courteous and swift, and no awkward glances from the server when we decided to split everything. On our order: two big devil burgers (10 ounces vs the 1/3 lb little... More

Best burgers ever. You don't need fries. Service was a little slow but it was worth it. Will certainly be back when we are in the area.

Decided to go to Rays to the Third to try out the burgers since we were happy with the steaks at Ray's the Steak. Burgers were juicy with a variety of toppings. I had the Fat Joe which was delicious .The Milkshakes were thick you almost needed a spoon to enjoy it. The sirloin steak was just ok. my kids... More

My family was on a road trip visiting Washington, D.C. and were staying a few blocks away. Our hotel recommended Ray's and we were not disappointed! The burgers are HUGE and the sides are plentiful. The only issue with Ray's is that the service is very slow. What should be a 1 hour dinner ended up being 2 hours.

I've had many a burger in my life and this place takes the prize as the best. The New Jack Zing (blackened burger, pepper jack cheese, grilled onions, charred jalapeños and roasted garlic) is SENSATIONAL (and that's just ONE example)!!!! Well worth the wait and I challenge you to find better.
