Well, not really a restaurant, but a great take-out. Starting out as a street corner hot dog coach years ago, Ray now has a real establishment without wheels. I never drive through Saco without stopping for a hot dog and neither should you. The celery salt is the key!!

Whether it's 12pm, 5pm or 1am - if you're craving a burger or hotdog with cheese, fries and chocolate milk - you must visit Rapid Rays! The food is really good, the staff is even better!

Some things in life you can count on. One is Rays being open for those late night burger cravings. I've been eating here since college (many moons ago) and it's still a treat.

OK, its still there after 50 or something years. It's bigger, shinier and more expensive. The product, however has not kept up with the times. Serves a steamed hot dog and bun similar to what you'd find at a high school football game...cept Ray's has celery salt.

Never think of a hot dog stand type place selling lobster rolls but they do. Great fast service. Lobster roll was good and fries were great. Everything was fresh. Will go there again.

I have visited Ray's for thirty years. Great late night site for a juicy burger with your choice of fixings! it's a quick take-out...or you can stand near a window and look out onto Main St. Great food, great people!

Go there enough and the staff knows you by site. Quick service depending if it busy or not. If its a quick order, you will be out if there in less than five minutes!

I've known of Rapid Ray's for a long time now, but until just recently had never been. When I did I learned why it's a Saco favorite. Good burgers, good fries and just a fun place to go and eat.

Rapid's is a staple in the Saco Community. Their food is consistenly good, and the service is great as well. The loaded burgers are my favorite!

Ok for a hot dog place. Some sort of a locals favorite, honestly just ok for me. Good choice late night.
