Ray's is always busy because locals have learned to love the food. Recent ownership change did not change the food nor the staff. Busboy who remembers we drink volumes of iced tea, brought a pitcher to the table, just as he always has done. I don't think anyone has ever been disappointed they came for a meal at Ray's.

The restaurant has changed ownership but in a seldom seen decision has kept the original staff. They have the same first class philosophy that Ray had. Tasty food, attentive service. My restaurant of choice.

This restaurant turned over to new owners...first thing they did was spruce up the place which now looks cleaner than ever-thank heavens! The food is the same wonderful mexican dishes made by the same staff that really knows their food. This is one of the few places we really like the beans and rice, try the mole for a real... More

Yes found this wonderful place in Covina serving a nice evening variety of Mexican dishes. Fresh chips and salsa comes quickly to your table by a very posting energized staff. Serving both breakfast and lunch special to satisfy most diners. Than save room for the homemade desserts ..pies, cakes and other creations. Just like grandmother made. Prices very reasonable too.

Not pretty, just good. No atmosphere or entertainment. Just quiet, clean, hot and spicy. A friend. It has some history. It's been here a while.

Every time we have eaten here I have become ill. The last time we ate here a cockroach ran across our table. We have been here a total of 3 times. I should have learned after the first visit. I was so sick I ended up having to go to the doctor. When my tests came back, the first thing... More
