This is a Good Old Fashioned PoBoy, the kind that's rare, even in New Orleans, these days. I rate PoBoys by napkins, 1 to 10, and this PoBoys is definately a 9 1/2 napkin PoBoys !! My favorite is the Roast Beef PoBoy. My son's favorite is the Ribeye PoBoy. We eat here every time we pass through Monroe. We... More

Ray's Pege is famous for their poboys but since I didn't want bread I opted for the fried catfish plate. This was some of the best fried fish I've ever had in a restaurant. The seasoning was just perfect and was absolutely delicious. The green beans were seasoned great as well and were wonderful. The only thing that wasn't good... More

The decor appears to be from the 60s but they have great food and the staff is awesome. I travel to Monroe for business and make sure I stop in several times

Even if the food is delicious, it loses its appeal when the restaurant is not neat and tables are not cleaned. I have been going to Ray's for decades and love the po-boys!! The fries are great....taste homemade but staff needs to pay attention to details and service.

We were driving through Monroe and decided to see if Ray's was still here. The roast beef Po Boys were great, fries were still as we remembered, delicious! We had fun, liked the restaurant and will stop by again.

I have searched the area for the best hot dog, and by golly I believe this place has it! The bun is fresh, the weiner properly cooked, large selection of toppings, and great chili! So when you want a hot dog, the place is on N. 7th in West Monroe. I know there are other locations, but the owners, and... More

Searched online for top Monroe Burger Joints, saw good things about this spot. Wasted 20 minutes of travel time off of our route to give it a shot. There was a sign on the door saying they would be closed Sunday/Monday. Plus, the hours on the window were different than the website, which would have still messed us up if... More
