Love, love, love this place! I don't remember how I stumbled upon this place, but now, the owner and I are on a first name basis! Best Chicago style spot in Kalamazoo, IMO!! They even have a Veggie Delight sandwich that had taken the place of my usual burger!!

If you are craving authentic Chicago dogs and Italian beef sandwiches (dip it) this is the place to go. He also has ribs, chicken, sausage and meatball sub which we haven't tried yet. Judging from the customers in & out, I imagine that these items are the real deal too. Sometimes you have to wait your turn but believe me,... More

Ray Ray's is a special Kalamazoo secret gem!!! His restaurant is not easy to find, but once you have, I guarantee you will go back! (Many times, more than likely!) You will need cash because ray is not a dealer in credit cards. But he is a fine purveyor of the best sandwiches in all of Southwest Michigan! Possibly all... More

This is true Chicago style food in Michigan! Simply the best. I LOVE this place. When i feel food home sick...Ray Ray's is the cure for this Chicago boy. Italian Sausage Combo dipped is deliciously spot on. And just as good if you have them separately. The Chicago Dogs are how hotdogs are supposed to be...perfect. This is a top... More

The place people always return to. Get there early or you will miss out on your fav foods, they run out of menu items quick. The homemade fries are lip smacking!!! Pure Chicago! In the North we love anything Chicago Style!

Ray ray's has authentic Chicago style Sausages, rib tips etc. the peppers and onions are spicy enough to give you some heat but not do too much damage. If you are in Kalamazoo and don't eat at Ray Ray's you are truly missing out
