Wings

When you order wings at Ray J's, you get the whole wing. Come in for happy hour and you get a large order for the price of a small order. Also, the margarita pizza is the best one around.

two of us went on weekend for breakfast/lunch. Restaurant was only partially full yet 3 pancakes and a chicken wrap took over 30 minutes to arrive. Pancakes were so burnt they had to be re done which took another 20 minutes! Chicken wrap had absolutely no flavor at all. Manager did take pancakes off bill without having to be asked,... More

I have been to Ray J's many times but always ate indoors. The patio was available last night but we opted to eat outside. Service was slow. Tables were sticky and left unbussed for a long time - used napkins were blowing on the ground. We, and several other diners, had to get up and search for condiments, flatware and... More

We used to visit Ray J's quite a bit over the years, but the last couple times that we went there, the food service was so-so, and the food quality of the food has diminished. The last time we were there, my wife and I ordered the fried fish, it was greasy and mushy, and the previous visit, the pizza... More

We have been to Ray J's before and ordered off the menu, and it was good. We just had the Sunday brunch and I was extremely disappointed. We didn't know we couldn't order off the menu before we sat down. We figured we would try the buffet anyways. Huge mistake. Almost everything was gone or old, cold, and dried out.... More

We all had good food and the wings and Mac and cheese were our favorites! The staff was also very friendly. The only downfall is the restaurant is filthy. I could not figure out why my chair would not move and I realized it was stuck to the ground. The bathroom looked like someone threw drinks not wall and floor... More

A great place for the family or with your buds. It really is some of the best food in town. The wings are a must!
