Great grub

Don't expect white table clothes and table side service. This is the kind of place you would drive right past based on outside appearance. But walk through the door and order any of their messy, delicious Chicago hotdogs or Italian beef sandwiches and you'll be very happy you did. My wife and I... read more

My wife and I have tried the chicago dog, italian beef with giardineira, hamburger, fries, and pulled pork and all were just great! The food is always hot and fresh and served with a smile. The staff is friendly and professional while keeping the customers happy! Can't wait to return. Thanks to Robert and his crew for being a true... More

As a kid growing up with an Italian heritage, I always enjoyed eating sandwiches with peppers and onions, so it was great to find this place that served sandwiches that reminded me of my childhood. I ordered the Italian Beef with all of the extras. Yummy. I could easily eat these sandwiches all week.

Great food, limited by no seating.. My girlfriend and I met here to eat, ( we come more than a half hour to hour away, one from north, one from south) luckily it was beautiful day and we were able to eat in a park that was near. I still want to try the rib tips, so on a nice... More

Yesterday we drove to Kalamazoo just for lunch, and the 100 mile drive to get there was worth every mile. Once you have had what is hands down the best Italian beef this side of Chicago, you will find yourself making periodic pilgrimages to quench the cravings you will get for their incredible sandwiches (get it dipped, you will not...

If you go you have to try the Beef Combo dipped with peppers....to die for. Along with anything you order try the fries which are whole potatoes cut to order and fried fresh. I have been there probable 20 times and have not had a bad meal and that says alot.

One might never think that some of the best Chicago style street food is located at Ray Ray's. Everything on the menu is delicious. I like he Italian beef w/cheese and soggy fries. Huge portions. Sometime during lunch rush, it feels like an episode of Sienfield.

Have been going here for years, drive from Grand Rapids just for lunch. Rob, not "Ray" is the owner and is the guy who serves you up! If you love Chicago food and don't want to go to Chicago this is the place!!
