“Scrumptious Chicago style Italian Beef Sandwich”
Reviewed 13 March 2012

You'll think you are in Chicago at the first bite. Small little shop with the best Italian Beef sandwich, with juice dripping down your arm if you order it 'wet'. Packed with people at lunchtime just waiting to devour that sandwich with the home-made fries. A must eat treat!

“Real Chicago”
Reviewed 21 October 2011

As I pulled into the parking lot of this unassuming establishment I was immediately hit with amazing smells. Had the Italian beef with peppers and onions, original Chicago dog w/everything and chili cheese fries. Everything was great and the owner was very gracious. Will definitely have the homemade sausage next time.

“Best Place for Chicago Soul Food Outside of Chicago”
Reviewed 8 September 2011

This place is *amazing*. They have Italian beef, Chicago style hot dogs, pulled pork, chicken, freshly cut fries (with optional cheddar sauce), BBQ BBQ and more BBQ... truly awesome Chicago soul food. My boyfriend loves their hot chili and said it's as hot and delicious as the stuff he used to eat in New Mexico.

The restaurant only has a couple chairs and some counter stools, and it's deathly hot in there during the summer, so plan on getting your food to go.

If you're on Miller, look for the Chicago sports team flags on the roof. Ray Ray's is next to a party store on the corner of Miller and Fulford.

“The best thing i've ate in a long time”
Reviewed 29 July 2011

I had the italian beef with peppers and onions. It was the most delicious sandwich i've had in years. The price was pretty good for the size of the meal. The atmosphere is cool and has a real Chicago feel to it. I highly recommend. Its a little off the main path, but well worth finding. Looking forward to going back again soon!
