Want the best bbq and friendly service then don't miss Ray's. The ribs are always tender and the brisket is juicy.. If you have to have chicken or Turkey then your still in luck. Don't miss momma Ray's Mac and cheese.

We’ve tried Rays six times in four years and it has been very inconsistent. If we said something about the order being wrong or extremely small it was corrected but not without hesitation or an ugly look. I’d rather buy side of beef and cook...More

Excellent. Best ribs in Metro! Additional location in Moore, Oklahoma is even better than the original restaurant, if that is possible.
