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. The food arrived so quickly I didn't have time to finish the chips. I ordered the Cactus Kid sandwich piled with beef, bacon and sauce. It was very tasty and I was not... More

We had the cheeseburger and club sandwich. It was fresh and fast! We loved the decorations and the staff were very friendly. We will be back for sure!

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.

I had to laugh at some of the reviews about this place. Too country? They try to sell stuff to you and your kids? Really? It is a country decor, complete with a stagecoach silhouette on the wall and country music playing. There are barrels of candies and toys as one enters (akin to Cracker Barrel but much, much smaller),... More
