Food was good, we had a turkey sandwich & brisket sandwich, both of which came with fries. Drinks are extra. Both of our meals came to 20.29 incl tax. Good place to eat if you are in Norman. Nothing fancy but it beats the chain...More

When in the mood for BBQ, we go nowhere else. Their brisket and ribs are to die for and their beans are especially good. Their cake desserts are just the icing on what is always a very satisfying and excellent meal.

The road construction was a pain in the butt, but the reward of some great smoked meat made it worth the effort. I had the 3 meat dinner. Ribs, brisket and hot links. Fantastic flavor. Came with 2 sides. The beans were great and so...More

Ray's Smokehouse is one of those places that you hear about and sounds too good to be true. A co-worker brought me here the first time I had come to Norman on business for lunch and we've returned here every time I come to town...More

Everything is good at Ray's. They sometimes run out of brisket at the end of the day, so if you want it, bet there early. Ribs are best in Norman. Our family enjoys eating here several times a month. Don't let the construction stop you...More

There are 3 great BBQ places in Norman. They are Rudy's, Vans and Ray's. However Ray's has the best side dishes. Rudy's sides andd even Van's can use improvement in this area.

Everything there is good. My wife loves the pulled pork because it has no chunks of fat as some others do. I love the spare ribs and my son loves the sausages. The sides are good also, especially the beans.
