The ultimate in hot dog stands, but is going to another level. This place just keep getting better and better. The menu has been expanded , Just like the building, without sacrificing a bit of quality. Whenever I come in here it's just like coming home again.I never tire of this place.

Went with my son this past weekend. Got two cheeseburger and two hot dogs and a large fry. My son liked the hotdogs. If you order them, they are not red. We ordered a large fry and I don't think it was any bigger than a small..... Fair food, the burgers are a bit small but tasty.

Unusual little place that appeals mostly to locals because they remember going as kids. Greasy burgers and hotdogs. Stand, order and take out. Nothing special but it is locally known well.

It's a fast food place with a local following. Hot dogs, Chili cheese dogs, burgers & my choice, the broiled chicken breast on a bun. Cheap, good, a hunk of white meat freshly prepared. No tables inside. None out either. You order, you stand at the window shelves or plunk down outside on a bench like we do. No mumbo... More

You can imagine my surprise as I looked at the menu and found a lobster roll for $8!!! Then they had a clam cake for $2! We were looking for a quaint quick place to grab a bit to eat since we had a toddler with us. Being from Boston, I am used to small lobster rolls being much more... More

Stopped on the way through for a quick hot dog and fries. We ended up getting chili dogs, double burger and fries. This is not a "sit down" place - no tables or chairs here. You eat standing up at a shelf that runs along the outside of the restaurant along the windows. Food arrived hot and a fair amount.... More

I'm a huge In-n-Out fan from California and find Rapid Rays to also be a throughly enjoyable experience, though it may be closer to a Habit Grill or Sonic burger, only more fun. Walk in only, place your order, step to the side and tell the man what you want on your burger and watch while he puts it together... More
