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!!

I have the Beef and Sausage Combo every time. They are slow but when the food arrives it is worth the wait. For Chicago style beef you cannot beat it.

Ray does a great job of making Chicago style food. The Italian beef sandwich is one of the best I've ever had. This place is out of the way with subtle signage, and small but always busy. There is a stand up counter and 2 tables with chairs. The only think keeping me from rating this a 5 is that... More

Ray has really taken chicago style and brought it to our little corner of Michigan. The food is amazing, and perfectly prepared. You will not be dissapointed.

This is by far the best BBQ pulled pork sandwich I have had. The atmosphere fits the for a local favorite. Ray is so fun and he knew the locals by name. We stopped as a recommendation from trip advisor. Do not let the look stop you from trying this great place.

Tiny place, a little hole in the wall really which is often a good sign to me! Mainly take out, very busy at lunch but worth the wait. Very good Italian beef, along with Italian sausage, Chicago style hot dogs, and BBQ choices. We have enjoyed everything we have tried here so far. Great food and good value!

Fantastic sandwich. Ray's Ray's is a great place to get Italian beef if you are used to eating it in Chicago- It's the only place that comes close including my own kitchen where I have had a failed attempt at making italian beef a year or two back.
