Rax used to be my favorite, better than Arbys. This one is not too good. Dry meats, skimpy portions, not worth the time. Go to Arbys

This Rax is one of the last locations of the chain around this area. The food is always good and service is fast. Not sure why there's not more of them. I always try to stop here for lunch if passing through! Great sandwiches (love the BBC - Beef Bacon Cheese) and crispy twisty fries. Great milkshakes - especially the... More

Miss Rax. I'd been making occasional trips to Parkersburg, WV for my BBC fix, but they've since closed. We went to Lego store in Columbus so made a side trip to pick up some lunch and buy a few cups of BBC cheese to take back home. Building in better shape than Parkersburg store was, for was just as good... More

I really miss Rax Restaurant but this one was a treat to visit. As you would expect the food was good and it was a value, we had a family of seven and the price was fare.

Was there this week. The service in the drive thru was slow, they got our order wrong, but the server was very kind.

If you like roast beef this is your stop. My favorite is the Mushroom Melt but the regular roast beef sandwiches are always a great treat whether you eat in or drive through!

I worked at Rax as a crew member in high school and college, off and on between 1988 and 1994. Naturally, the chain holds a dear place in my heart and it was sad to see its precipitous decline. Having last eaten at Rax in the early part of last decade before the last Rt 161 store in Columbus closed,... More
