“Awesome Food and Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2014

I have lived in Elgin for two years now and I love Ray's. From the moment you walk in the door you are greeted and treated with respect. Even when they are crowded you get a table within seconds!!! The food is great and the service is phenomenal. I highly recommend everything on the menu as well.

“Hidden Treasure Period”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2014

The locals absolutely love this restaurant and for a reason. I literally went to this restaurant to prove the consensus wrong. Guess what, I was wrong. Great personal service, Great Prices and good food. While this is clearly out of the way, literrally off the expressway ramp on 20, and with tricky parking to the south, it is well worth checking out this restaurant. Great owner. Surprised that this restaurant does not have more reviews but may be due to the locals keeping a good thing to themselves!

“Excellent breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013

Had to be in Elgin early one day last week, and stopped at Ray's for breakfast---first time here. It was absolutely outstanding, just a good down to earth diner with great food and service.

Large omelet, with serious amounts of ham, hash browns prepared perfectly with no grease, toast...all for under $6? That is enough for a great review, but on top of that everyone had smiles, coffee was filled continuously and service was great overall.

Recommend highly!
