“A deli/grill gem”
Reviewed November 23, 2012

We arrived in Lake City early evening and just wanted an easy and lighter supper. We decided to try Ray's based on Trip Advisor reviews. And we were very happy with our choice.Very clean restaurant with friendly service and a really good variety in selection--I ordered a gyro that was perfect in taste and price and my husband had a steak sandwich. The deli had counter service for ordering but your food was delivered to your table/booth. There were good side choices, i.e., I could get a fruit cup instead of fries. Would definitely eat there again--probably frequently if we lived in Lake City.

“Best Burgers in Town”
Reviewed November 21, 2012

This was probably our fourth visit to Ray's, and the place has continued not to disappoint. We were welcomed with friendly service, and the lovely decor that we have always enjoyed. The prices for the food were very good, considering both the quality and quantity. There is also a good variety, mainly of burgers, with different toppings to give you something new to try every time your there. You can also get some good appetizers and sides, such as a tasty batch of corn nuggets. You will never leave Ray's even a little bit hungry.

“Great food and service!”
Reviewed September 8, 2012

I've been to Ray's several times this year and decided that I probably go back again tonight. I like the salad, The fries(monsterous portion) the onion rings and most everything I've tried. It's family friendly and the staff is great. Give it try, you won't be disappointed.
