“Consistently the Best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

I work right across the street and it's tough to walk by every day and not go. The burgers are so good, so perfect in every way I laugh whenever the Post or Washingtonian comes out with a best burger list and Ray's isn't at the top. I've been to Five Guys, the Burger Joint and others, but Ray's is the best. Hands down. I've taken dozens of friends, colleagues and family members here, from all over the U.S., Mexico, Russia and other places. Each agrees with me that Ray's has the best burger they'd ever tasted.

But don't just take my word for it. Try it for yourself. Here's my go to:
Au poivre burger with bacon, guacamole and smoked mozzarella. Lettuce and a tomato slice are optional. Enjoy!

“Good, but not great”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

Our party had both steaks and burgers.
Burgers were very good.
Steaks were average at best. I was expecting mouth watering, but I've had much better on my grill.

“Great service awesome food great price!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012 via mobile

We always use tripadvisor and it never fails us! This place looks like a hole in the wall but was clean, had great food, well priced, and the service is awesome!! It's cash only but they have an ATM & give military discount! Definitely would go again!!

“Great burger”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012

Great burger, good fries but no salads or veggies. The place may be packed when you walk in and get in line. Don't worry the turnover is fairly fast so there will be a place to sit when your burger arrives.
