Having moved to OK from Kansas City about 5 years ago, I knew that my choice of BBQ would be much less. However, I have continually been shocked by how little selection of VERY good quality BBQ there is. Driving back to Edmond from Dallas,...More

We ordered at the counter, and our food was delivered within 3 minutes.We had the potato with chopped brisket and the lean brisket plate. Both were excellent. Within 15 minutes of our arrival, the place was packed with local customers

First visit to Ray's - very impressed with the speed of service, friendly staff, amount of food when served, and food was hot when serviced. Was popular eatery for families, couples, and individuals on a Friday night.

Excellent BBQ, their smoked tender brisket sandwich combo basket was wonderful. Great crispy seasoned fried okra as a side or homemade Mac n Cheese is delicious. Fast friendly service makes this locally owned a favorite.

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.
