This set up is legit! Lots of broiled chicken yumminess happening at one time. The chickens are juicy and very flavorful. Lines aren't ever too bad. A nice thing to grab as a beach snack for the fam.

The line never ended, so we had to check it out.. it moved quickly for a Sunday at lunch time. The lunch combo was $9 for 1/2 a chicken, a bite of slaw (with pineapple) and of course rice.... worth checking it out while there

Ordered the half chicken for $6.00. It was a good price, but it seemed like less than half a chicken when I received the ordered. The chicken was flavorful and the meat was moist.

This is my all-time fav chicken place in Oahu. I remember coming across this place when all they had was a wee grill situated across from the church. Boy was I glad to have stumbled into some amazing chicken! Last I've been was in 2017...More

Heard great things about Ray's Huli Huli Chicken....high expectations confirmed. Chicken had beautiful char flavor, juicy and tender, crispy skin. The pineapple slaw was heavenly but the dipping sauce stole the show....man, I could've drunk that stuff. Make sure you soak every bite of chicken...More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stop at Ray's. They were busy, as one might expect, but the line moved quickly and the chicken was most certainly worth the wait. The only down side was there was no place to sit.

It was on our foodie list during our Oahu stay, and glad we did! Went on Saturday morning around 11am, there was no line, got our chicken pretty fast, we didn’t had it until 2~3 hours later as we went shopping in Haleiwa town lol...More

For taste, value and portion size Ray's checks all boxes. This is the second time I've been to Ray's, never disappointed.

This was amazing - people came from miles around as the smell wafted around the area- it was mouthwatering chicken cooking on an outdoor rostisserie. Very inviting
