We visited Ray's pizza near times square twice, the quality and taste of the pizza was excellent, although the seating area is small and can get crowed many a times, it's worth visiting this pizza house for a variety of great pizza's.

Walking around the Times Square / Theater District I decided to try Ray's again. Been to the others in the area and it had been awhile. Happy to say Rays is a good spot to grab a slice for around $5. If your unfamiliar, the pizzas are premade and a variety are under glass for you to decide what kind... More

I hope the arrogant boss of this particular franchise reads this. I went in to order pizza and fries and started to say what I wanted and was rudely interrupted and told you order pizza at the pizza area and fries at the counter which are literally next to each other what difference did it make? So I ordered 2... More

Most overpriced pizza I have every paid for. Avoid this place unless you want to get ripped off. It was 24 dollars for 3 slices and 2 water.

Typical NYC pizza. Not good, not bad but pretty pricey for a slice even by NYC standards. They get u in and out quickly. It's not the worst pizza I've had and it is no where near the best...

Was looking for a takeaway to take back to the hotel and found this place. Fantastic pizzas, the medium size is very big. So good we went back a second night.

We had a simple large cheese pizza and it was the most basic pizza we had in our week stay in New York. I've had better pizza for $5 from Little Ceaser's. The crust was like cardboard, the sauce was plain, and the cheese was cheese.

Multiple visits and all good. Tried the cheese, pepperoni, mushroom/olive/pepperoni, meat special, AND their great garlic knots! Muah!

Definitely not the best pizza I've had, but good for a quick bite. They've got a large variety of pizzas which they warm up in the oven for you.

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.
