We were out of towners looking for a non-chain BBQ place and heard about Ray'z. Ray, his wife Shirley and daughter Marla made us feel like we were visiting old friends. Prices were low, serving sizes modest but fair and most importantly, the food was tops. His personal recipe BBQ sauce was outstanding! Seasoned fries were tasty and not too spicy. Other sides were excellent. Highly recommend for an authentic Memphis BBQ experience!

This is my kind of place: all about the food, no frills.
We came early for lunch and had ribs and Italian brisket sub. Both were excellent. The ribs had a fantastic texture and the sauce is truly great.
Highly recommended

Friendly staff. Clean appearance. Lovely couples patronized this retaurant.
We stopped in on our way to Michigan, from Laredo, Texas.
I would liked to have purchased a "Rayz" shirt.

Dr. Ray was a pleasant man to sit and talk with. He gave us a tour of the place and the story of his Pit located inside an old bus. He is a Master Bar-B-Que man with a delightful tasty sauce.

Doctor BBQ welcomed us at th door and promised us the best BBQ pork we ever had... Quite a bold statement, but after finishing our meal we couldn't agree more. Absolutely amazing!! Wish I could try the rest of the menu, but we're leaving tomorrow morning... Maybe a franchise in the Netherlands?? :)
