“Review of the recently relocated Ray's. A mom n pops kinda place.”
Reviewed 2 March 2014

Ray's Diner was once by the train tracks. At the time it was located there my husband & I had never been. Within the last 2 years they relocated to a larger building next door to Mc'Donald's. For our first visit it was my husband, myself, & 2 of our 3 children (ages 2 & 4) in our dining party. We went for breakfast on a weekday. It was very busy, however we were seated immediately. Very friendly & efficient staff. Waitress went above and beyond to keep our children happy. She brought crayons & some pages from a Carebear coloring book to keep them busy. Food was brought out timely considering how busy they were. Price was reasonable. Food quality was good. It was unique. A waffle house selection meets mom n pops better end quality. We were pleased with the taste & temps of the food. Price was fair. Not a rush kinda place. More like a read the paper talk with the locals kinda place. We will definitely go back.

“Resident”
Reviewed 28 December 2013 via mobile

Service was just okay. Ordered simple ham and cheese omelet, toast and coffee. Food arrived in timely manner, omelet under cooked, potatoes half burnt, toast was good. And for this I was charged 9 plus dollars. Won't be back there again.

“Perfect Breakfast”
Reviewed 1 November 2013

Loved it. Almost didn't have a seat available when we visited for breakfast at 9 a.m. on a week day. My husband was delighted that they offered corned beef hash. The bacon was the best I have ever tasted. I love bacon and their bacon was the best. Great wait staff. Fair prices. Good food!
