If you are anywhere near Kokomo, IN, a tenderloin sandwich at Ray's is a must. This trip did not disappoint yet again. Even chased in down w/ a slice of sugar cream pie. Nothing fancy, but a true Hoosier experience!

In the summer this is the place to be. The Tenderloins are amazing and they have a $1 day with killer hot dogs.

He had heard about the largest Tenderloin in Indiana and she had to try it. And they wasn't kidding, it basically took up the whole normal size plate. And tasted really good all for measly $8.50.

Ray's has been in Kokomo for years and there is a reason why. Good ol' home cooked food. Drive up or sit down. King Tenderloin is the best.

If you love original, independant, old american drive-ins then give Ray's a go. Great service and good food. Just 5 mins from Kokomo Speedway.
