We came to Kalamazoo MI to help some family move south. On our last night we went to Ray Rays to eat and everything was so good. We had chili, short ribs, pulled pork and some polish sausage. Of course we tried everything each of us had and it was all amazing. I am born and raised in Texas and... More

It's off the beaten path a bit and doesn't look like much but don't let that fool you! They have plenty of awesome help, getting delicious food out in seconds! I was throughly impressed with the menu offerings and the depth of the dishes but most impressed with the staff!

This little hole in the wall has great food and now they take credit cards too! Their chili is just okay, but everything else is great.

I always try to stop at Ray's Ray's when I'm in Kalamazoo. I love their Chicago Style dogs. Small house, great service.

This place was as good as any Italian beef that you can get in Chicago. It felt like I was in Chicago with the decor. The service was very friendly, the guy at the counter even remembered everyone by name.

The food at this place is very tasty. The wet sandwiches are by far the best in kalamazoo. It has a great taste of Chicago. Highly recommended

I wonder how they settled on a name for this diamond in the rough. Sure, they serve terrific Italian sausage sandwiches. But they have terrific hamburgers...and outstanding meatball sandwiches...and out-of-this-world barbecue...and delicious baked beans...and perfect French fries. Et cetera. The service is extraordinary, too. Chef Dave puts a really nice personal touch on it all. Even though parking and seating... More

After reading so many positive reviews about this place we decided to give it a try while in town. Driving up to the outside I had my doubts, but once inside you're greeted with a wonderful aroma and very nice people behind the counter. We timed it good as they were not very busy (its a small place) We were... More

Ray Ray's is the real deal! You have to try the Chicago Italian beef, such good flavor and the beef is so tender. Also the Chicago dog is incredible! I don't usually like Chicago dogs because of all the veggies but Ray Ray's is perfect. It's the only place i would order a Chicago dog.. I have loved everything I've... More

Robert and his fine crew served up another delicious lunch. Today I started with a Chicago Dog as an "appetizer." The main course: an Italian Meatball sandwich. The amount of time, effort, and love all are reflected in the many layers of flavors. I've yet to be disappointed by the quality of the food or the attentiveness of the staff.... More
