I got a big slice of Spinach Alfredo pizza which was tasty. My friend got a calzone that wasn't hot all of the way through. We stopped in at around 7 PM on a Saturday evening. It was packed!! The fact that it was so crowded was fun. We met some nice people who sat nearby. This wasn't the best... More

If you want a cheap-ish but delicious slice of pizza near Times Square (near the M&M store) then Ray's is the place to go. Remember that American servings are MASSIVE and don't order pizza AND pasta, which I did as I forgot how big the servings are. I couldn't eat all of my pasta but took it with me. The... More

Pizza was great!! Buy it buy the slice and a large variety pre made of topping selections to pick from. For those looking for a fast place to get a slice of great NY pizza, this is it. We went to two other pizza places before we found this place and it was exactly what I was looking for! Staff... More

This place is really close to my hotel. Every time I visit nyc, I drop off my luggage and walk across the road for a slice of pizza. You walk in the door and pick a slice from the counter in front of you. They put it in the oven to warm it up for you. It doesn't really matter... More

If you are looking for an official 'New York' slice of pizza then look no further than the Ray's pizzerias you'll see around. The crust is thin and crispy and the toppings are varied. This is a place to grab a quick bite and either eat it at the bar or as you head out the door. It is not... More

If you are looking for ambiance, this is not the place to go but if you want a really tasty slice of New York pizza at a reasonable price this is it!! The crust was very crispy with a little char and the toppings were varied and tasty.

The server ?Ray, was rude and arrogant, we tried to order from the menu above the counter, all he shouted was I said it's just this , pointing to the pizza on the front counter, there was other food in hot plates, but he kept shouting 'I said this is it, pointing to the pizza' we felt rather humiliated as...

If you like New York style pizza...foldable thin crust pizza you should try Ray's. It might not be the most authentic, but certainly tasted good and at a good price... under 4$.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
