This place sells the best wet subs in Kalamazoo, it can be messy, but the flavor is 10/10. The MJ burger is fantastic, a flavorful beef burger with chili fries. The chili there is spicy and adds a lot of flavor to dishes.

Had to try this place during our short visit to Kalamazoo. It was absolutely delicious. Small walk in carry out business that has the heart of Chicago. For fun you will get hassled if you wear Detroit Tigers etc since they are true Chicago. I highly recommend this as a stop. Its not too far off 94!!!

Good food and a fun atmosphere. Space is somewhat limited but the food makes it worth it. Better as a take out during lunch hour

If you like Chicago style Italian beef and hot dogs this is your place. First of all, it does not look like a restaurant from the outside and you would probably never see this place driving by. Secondly, the people were SO friendly! They interacted with us, helped us with questions and were very outgoing and made sure we were... More

Oftentimes delectable delicacies, extraordinary edibles, “foodie” foodstuffs, are found in the most inauspicious, unassuming locales. Such is the environs of Ray Ray’s Italian Beef & Sausage in Kalamazoo, Michigan. The trip to find this purveyor of fine sausages and barbecues, huddled in a nondescript strip mall, is well worth the effort. A recent foray to Ray Ray’s eatery centered on... More

We seen this place listed on TripAdvisor and people were saying good things about the food, so we decided to try it. No kidding when one of the posts said, "a hole in the wall." We almost missed the place, as we passed it and had to turn around. We ordered two sandwiches, a burger (forgot name), which turned out... More

Well, this place is a hidden gem. Excellent tasting food Chicago style....hot dogs, Italian beef, combo, fries and more. Seating for less than 10 people and expect a wait for your food. Everything is made to order.

This is one of those little neighborhood hole in the walls where some of the best food resides. The food variety is good, and the value for the money spent is incredible. It is like a truck stop. I tried a little bit of everything since it had come so highly recommended.... Chicago Dog, Fries, Chili, Potato Salad, Italian Beef.... More

I have been to Chicago many times and had the beef sandwiches and Ray Ray's is better. This little spot makes great beef sandwiches, awesome Chicago dogs, great sausages and burgers. They dip 'em and have the peppers and onions to make the experience authentic. The biggest surprise was the best fries I and have ever had. I love fries... More

Staying in town for a few days and found this little hole in the wall. AMAZING! We had the Italian beef, Chicago dawgs, and tips with two sides. Everything was full of flavor and so good! The staff was so friendly. I seen they only accept cash, which I had none on me. I told the owner I would be... More
