Good but lacked oomph

My husband ordered a "BIG ONE" as did I. He ordered a "Crab cake" as did I. He ordered a large fry and I had an large onion ring. The order was to go as is all their food, no seating area. We got no sauces for our fries, rings or crab cakes. We liked the flavor of what was... read more

Ray's has been serving happy customers for decades here in Saco, and shows no signs of letting up. Perfect place for a snack, or a late night bite, or go all the way and make a dinner out of the experience. Burgers and Dogs, with all the fixings, plus fries and onion rings make this the real deal. Woof some... More

Why is it when family comes in for a visit, they always demand to get to Rapid Ray's for their comfort food fest. Let's face it...it's not fine dining, but it offers reasonable fun fare at great prices and fast efficient service. Why would anyone consider the "other" fast food options when the real deal exists in downtown Saco?

Quick food made to order, awesome onion rings and burgers and priced very well! Didn't realize there were no tables, but sat on benches outside and talked to locals. Cute little downtown area!

Rapid Rays is awesome! The cheeseburgers are thin patties that are dripping with cheese and the buns are almost steamed so they are super soft. The fries are thin cut and the small is plentiful. There is no place to sit, you can stand at the counter if you like. The service was fast and they ask you what you... More

Fast service and no frills. The menu is small but enough to satisfy a burger hot dog craving. Loved the fact that they toast their buns on the grill. Small fry was more than enough for one person. The hours make this place a must hit for late night as well.

Rapid Ray's is a fixture on Saco's Main Street and for good reason. Good burgers, reasonable prices, and lots of memories for those of us who grew up in town.

Love to stop in here for a burger and fries. Love the history of the place and the atmosphere. It is so fun to just cozy up to the bar and watch traffic go by while eating a delicious burger. Love this place!!!

I'm not going to cry over the fact that their website's prices are completely old and inaccurate. The food is still on the better side of average. Fries aren't stellar. A true rating would be 3.5. If prices were the same in house as they listed on their website, I would've probably given them four starts.

You will not find gourmet treats or epicurean delights here, but honest American fast food. Rapid Ray's has been around for decades, satisfying hungers until the wee hours of the mornings, (on weekends). It's standing room only, and although there are a couple of tables--there's no chairs! Essentially, it's a take-out only type of establishment. So, if you like hot... More
