Great custard with tons of flavors. They always support the local schools. I love Ray's! They also have tasty Italian Ice/custard drinks that we love.

Summer and Rays Water Ice and Custard. Can't beat a Rays Rocket. Vanilla Custard with Peanut Butter Ice is out of this world. Highly recommended. Everything is a great choice! Enjoy.

This is by far our favorite place for dessert! The frozen custard and Italian ice are incredible, and the family that owns the restaurant is top notch. You have to go!

I always walk their to get ice cream with my friends since it is local to me. The business is run by a Mother and Son. It is really good ice cream! The wait can be long occasionally.
