“My favorite burger”
Reviewed January 5, 2014

This has been my favorite burger since I first went there four or five years ago. I was there last in November 2013 and the burger was really good, but not quite as good as I remember. I wonder if anyone else has noticed this??? We had the burger to go, in a bag, as that's how they serve it if you sit in the seat-yourself area on the right side, so maybe being wrapped up as it was made it greasier. But this is still a great burger.

“Outstanding burger at a decent price”
Reviewed January 1, 2014 via mobile

Wife and I stopped in after hearing about this place from several people and it was outstanding. Wait staff was very friendly and timely service was given even though they were quite busy. The burger was perfectly grilled with the fried egg covering it and cheese. Wow!!! is all I can say about this place.

“Always decadent and fun!”
Reviewed December 19, 2013

I visit northern Virginia with some frequency, and Ray's Hell-Burger has become and indulgence I always allow myself. The burger with bone marrow is absolutely over the top, but if that's not for you, go for the black pepper crusted burger. It's excellent meat in a casual, no-frills setting.

“very good burger”
Reviewed December 1, 2013 via mobile

I chose the pepper burger, no cheese, lettuce, tomato, pickles, red onion. Took 3 napkins to pat off the excess grease(used back of fork to press down)and then placed back on buns. Enjoyed a delicious old fashion burger with mustard.

“What the hell?”
Reviewed November 26, 2013

This restaurant has become a cult, especially since the Prez and his Veep visited it a few years ago. The burgers are quite good (in particular the unhealthy ones - with foie gras or bone marrow), but there are better ones around. The mac & cheese is kind of bland. Basic decor and service for the price.
