A number of major hotels within a 5 min. walk, so its always filled with folks. Pizza was good, mid town NYC price not bad. It needs a full time cleaner, just so may people in a small store front. Do take out, that's what we did. Take out service was very fast.

Rang up the 1 slice of vegi pizza and drink for 6 bucks. Then didn't get drink. He said he didn't charge for one - so I didn't get one. $6 for a slice I said - you keep the cup and make the slice to go. And I went to walgreens and got a Pepsi. Place is dirty -... More

The pizzas were tasty and fresh, and inexpensive, but the place were a mess. It would be better to take the food with you and eat outside, but we had kids with us, and needed to sit.

They were out of cheese and pepperoni by the slice. They were out of fountain sodas. I asked about the pizza by the slice I got a response "this is what we have".

After having been disappointed by the pizza I had last night, I had higher hopes for Ray's to be the pizza "joint" I was looking for. Not to be. Its location draws mostly tourists - very few NYers in there. Wanted a cheese slice couldn't get it. My slices with veggies were served lukewarm. Service with a snarl. The community... More

Not much to say here. Rays Pizza is a pretty good slice of pizza. I wasn't expecting gourmet food. Less than 5 bucks for a pretty good slice. You know what your getting. Not bad at all.

It was conveniently located near our hotel on our way back from Times Square so we stopped in for a slice. We were not impressed with the selection so we ordered a medium pie with sausage and cheese. Their medium is the size of a large from any chain pizza place so be prepared for the size. We watched the... More

As expected in Times Square we waited a long time in line to order and collect our food. We were disappointed with the service we received and after finally receiving our food were charged double the advertised price. When we questioned the price we were treated with silence - no response to our question. My husband was so hungry he... More

Quick and easy pizza. Nice crispy crust. Calzone was full of ricotta and mozzarella cheese. Great to dip in the marina sauce that came as a side.

I was expecting a nice slice of NYC style pepperoni pizza. All they had was veggie and so specials they were out of pepperoni, cheese, anything normal you would expect they would always have. I ended up getting some ravioli I wanted meat they said they only had cheese so I ordered a meatball on the side and then when... More
