Love this place! Bbq is always lean, fresh, and tender. Sides are good and sauce is excellent? Lots of food for the price!

Ray's offers good BBQ--tender and with flavor, but portions are small and the sauce offerings are limited. It appears to be located in an old converted Pizza Hut.

The BBQ is always wonderful. The wait staff are very friendly and customer service orientated. I thoroughly enjoy it every time we eat here. The only exception is that I don't care too much for the beans. But that is personal preference, as some of our guests love them.

My wife and I eat at Ray's fairly often. The food is quite good, especially the ribs. The staff is friendly. We like this place a lot and will continue to eat there. I highly recommend Ray's.

If you want "unfancy and inexpensive tasty BBQ" this is the place to go in Norman. Really like the brisket.

If you are looking for great ribs, pulled pork, or beef brisket this place is great! Pulled pork was almost the melt on your tongue type. The Barbecue sauce was also good and sweet. The restaurant itself isn't anything frilly but I don't think it should be. This was extremely good food!
