We thought we had been to all the lunch spots in Lake City, until we stumbled upon Ray's Deli and Grill. It was delicious. Great burgers and sandwiches with homemade sides. They even provide a basket of homemade chips and dip for the table. There is barrel candy in the front, which the kids loved to pick a small bag... More

I enjoyed lunch with friends at Ray's today. The menu includes burgers, wraps, salads and sandwiches. A nice feature is the free "appetizer" of chips and dip.

Very good service. Food was delivered quickly. The food was very good. I had a mushroom swiss cheeseburger and fries. Both were very good. It doesn't look very big on the outside but it is very spacious.

Great service, great sandwiches spotlessly clean, where better to pull off the highway and enjoy some great Florida hospitality! One tip, try the carrot cake, delicious

The burgers look awesome. But I had eaten lunch late. Stopped for dessert and the French Silk Pie was great. Pie & coffee a bit over $7. I'm not a coffee drinker but they didn't have milk. They do have a kids menu, and small versions of the burgers. Worth the ride off I-75.
