Friendly staff, super clean place, great food, and fair prices. Ray's is my to go place when I am craving ribs, pulled pork sandwich, or even a burger. These guys never disappoint!

Not a bad place, the ribs were meaty and very tender. Had real butter for the corn on the cob. And the green beans had just the right amount of seasoning. They were pretty quick too, that's important to me.

Not the best in Oklahoma... but very good. Definitely above average. Would recommend.


Great food! Got the pulled pork sandwich and coleslaw. It was delicious. The hamburger was great as well as the grilled cheese from the kids menu. Easy to find the restaurant.

Fantastic BBQ, their beans are really tasty. Turkey basically falls apart and brisket was so good. Highly recommend. Fried okra is definitely a must have!

Pretty good barbecue but they forgot my dessert in a to-go order so I called to see if they could give me a credit for a future purchase but the lady who answered thought it best if I drove back to come get it. I expected an additional dessert or some kind of courtesy compensation since they did forget to pack the dessert I purchased on a $132 order but the young lady at the front said “no, I thought you would have just picked it up on your way out”. Huh? It was a “to-go” order. I would expect everything I ordered to be in the bag. Needless to say, that did not make me feel like a valued customer. I won’t be running back.

If you don't try their collards or Mac and cheese you're missing out. The turkey's moist. The ribs were slightly sweet without the sauce and fall off the bone tender. Staff are all nice people. I can't say enough!

I had seen positive reviews in local Facebook groups about Ray's and decided to try it out. I knew it would be good when we pulled into the parking lot at noon on a weekday and the place was packed.The food was excellent. We both got the 4 rib dinner and fries, I got the potato salad and my husband got the Mac and cheese for our other side. They may not have been the absolute best ribs that I have ever had but they are definitely in the top 3. Added with the spicy BBQ sauce and they come pretty close to being #1.They are a bit pricey, for the two of us with a tip it came out to about $35 but I highly recommend trying them. We will definitely be going more often now.

Everyone in town who knows BBQ, knows Ray's has the best. Love the owner and his family; very friendly people. Prices aren't cheap, but no bbq joint is anymore.Anyone who talks smack on Ray's probably doesn't understand that this is St. Louis-style bbq, and they're probably used to Texas/Memphis/Carolina-style stuff. If you love ribs fallen off the bone, and sweet/spicy sauce, this is the place. Sides are great too, as is most of their other smoked meats.

I always tell myself Im going to try something different but Im stuck on the ribs and brisket. Their meat is always moist and tender with the right amount of smoky flavor before you even add any sauce. I can never decide on hot or mild sauce so I get 1 of each to go with my meal. The smokehouse beans, greens and okra with their house ranch are my favorite sides.

Hands down best bbq in the state. Not a bad meat option at all. The sliced Brisket is my favorite although the balogna is amazing.

Had the collard greens and they didn't taste good. The rest was amazing. I will be going back again.
