"Ray’s has a vibe unlike any other place. There are signature food items like the Mo-Fo (decreed as the best burger he ever ate by Michael Symon on his Food Network show) and Gertie’s chili (Gertie worked at Rays for all four owners for 40 years). The sunstix, wings, desserts and specials all have a loyal following."  Dr. Patrick O'Connor- Author, "Meet Me at Ray's"
