Not nightclub dark. It... More

We were in the mood for a good burger so we hit up trip advisor to help us out. Ray's To The Third was just a few blocks from our hotel so we decided to check it out. We walked in really close to 8:30pm and when we were getting ready to order, the guy behind the counter asked ME... More

Perhaps the best burger I've ever had. Yummy, cheesy, greasy, melt in your mouth deliciousness. Cooked perfectly. Fast and affordable. Highly recommend.

I had the standard 6 oz burger with no cheese. The burger was suppose to be medium well but came out medium. This is not the same as the previous location. The burger was OK nothing to write home about The fries are very good fresh cut. They will not last at that corner!

It had been a while since my last visit, and Ray's is in a new location. Expecting a big crowd, I was pleased to find it fairly empty. Unfortunately, it was likely due to a significant drop off in quality. Service consisted of disjointed counter ordering, tip jar and a buzzer for pick up. Tots were good, and come with... More

Double burger, fries and cheesesteak, and water cost $34 with tip. Liked the unusually crispy hot fries given they are the fat variety. Meaty flavored beef was pure, not over seasoned not salted. Both sandwiches were best eaten with fork and knife- pretty soft and messy otherwise and likely spill able. One shared restroom- moderately clean. Plenty of paper towels... More

The atmosphere is basic fast food joint. There was the faint smell of sick which apparently only I noticed. The shakes were amazing. The burgers were ok and the fries were good. Overall I just was not impressed. Almost $40 later...maybe I'll just go to McD's or Burger King next time.

Ray's steaks are simply the best. Forget the side dishes and go straight for the protein and a glass or two of wine.
