I echo the comments of the last reviewer. In fact, we may have been standing in line together on August 30. We arrived just before noon and found the line coming out the door. There's only ONE person taking orders at the counter, AND handling phone orders. It does appear the phone-in orders take priority over those standing in line sweating and waiting to order. They also have a guy who yells out your name when your food is ready. I was lucky enough to sit at the counter away from the order line, but can see how uncomfortable it would've been for those who had folks standing in line watching them while they ate their burgers. I am not sure the burger lived up to the hype, or the wait. The meat is definitely seasoned in someway, so may not be for everyone. The toppings were generous though, and agree that the fries are nothing special. Seem a lot like the ore-ida frozen steak cut if you get my drift. As we finished up and walked outside, we saw Ray, the owner and my husband spoke to him and tried to tell a little joke but he just ignored us. Dining at T-Rays is quite an experience and a great way to get see some of the locals but I'm not sure if a visit to Tasty's would've been more pleasant.

Ate here for lunch, arriving just before 11:30 AM when it opens. This is an extremely popular place since the food is good and the prices are reasonable. Expect to wait in a considerable line as orders are taken at the counter. While you wait you may notice that phone in orders are accepted as well and seem to take priority over "live and in person" guests. Not sure why this is the case, but most customers don't seem to mind. Be careful not to choose a table near the line as this will be uncomfortable. Fried shrimp special on Fridays is exceptional, lightly breaded and perfectly cooked. Cheeseburger is an ample portion, hand patted, but dry. T-Rays adds spices to their burgers which some may not like. Fries are OK, but nothing special.

This place has been around forever and is a classic tradition in this area. Locals and vacationers mingle. Food is good and prompt. Setting is so unique! In an old gas station. Old diners tables and chairs. Busy joint! Well worth your lunch hour

No one beats T-Rays for breakfast. It is not a fancy place but they do lunch and breakfast as well as anyone. The burgers are delicious, the fried shrimp is excellent, and the scrambler is a Very filling breakfast dish. If you are on the island you must try T-Rays. You will NOT regret it.

Good breakfast we sat outside and really enjoyed it. It's counter service and so you have to go in for any drink refills utensils etc. when I asked for jelly the guy who brought out our food pointed to a couple at a picnic table across the way and said "ask if you can use theirs". That's the only reason for rating the service "average".
