Best BBQ and Chicken in Hayward!

We love RayJay's! The first time I ate there was on a Thursday night - all you can eat BBQ ribs for under $15. OMG - a massive plate was set before me, 4 tender, smoky-flavored ribs accompanied by a large serving of flavorful beans baked with pulled pork throughout, texas toast, a baked potato the... read more

We visit Rayjay's often when we're in Hayward. Their fish fry is really good, and the fried chicken is awesome. You have the option of fries, a baked potato, or Au Gratin potatoes with your meal which is great. But steer clear of the au gratin. They're soupy and taste like a box mix. A good place for sandwiches too.... More

Stopped there and got some good drinks and food. Bartender was awesome and did a good job considering the owners were getting a little too drunk. It was the wife's b-day so they had the music a little too loud but it was a good mix of music. But I guess I could cut them some slack on a b-day.... More

Went with lake neighbors for pizza. Sadly, RayJay's continues to be hit or miss ... And more frequently miss. Little or no atmosphere in the dining room, made recently smaller to create an alcove for a pool table. The alcove is between the bar and dining areas, so that you must wait for pool players to complete their shot before... More

Very good pizza, typical "Up North" decor. Busy place during hunting season, so don't expect to get in and out very quick. But had a nice RayJay Pale Ale while waiting for the pizza with some nice large wings. I will be back.

When looking for a good pizza or fried chicken, Ray Jay's is a good place to eat. Ask about their all-you-can eat chicken special day. Be sure to arrive hungry.

We were looking for food after fishing the Chip until dark. Stopped in because it was close to our motel and we were glad we did. Kitchen was closed but they would still make us a homemade pizza and it was recommended. Sausage and mushroom pizza. Excellent ingredients (except for the canned mushrooms) and well made. I guess I won't... More

OMG, where do I start? This is a neighborhood place that has the pizza that we dream about during the winter months when we can't get up to northern Wisconsin. During the summer we are fortunate to spend our weekends just 5 miles away from RayJay's. We go there at least once during the weekend. Love the chicken too. Actually,... More

We are fishing for a week on the Chippewa Flowage - and we looked for a spot to have a Friday night meal out rather than to have to cook again. The locals recommend RayJays on County Road B, so that's where we went. The restaurant is a classic North Woods spot - booths and tables and lots of wood... More
