Ray's The Steaks
Posted by My2cents on 02/12/2009
After several suggestions from co-workers, I went to Ray's for my birthday with my BF. We knew about the wait. We only had to wait for 45min. WONDERFUL filet Mignon, ordered it rare and it melts in your mouth like butter! sides were great, the waitress brought me a complimentary birthday Mousse!! Great time, I was too focused on my BF and my food, I did not notice the noise. Not a full bar, a bit crowded and tables very close together. The steaks are WONDERFUL. We are coming back this week.

The food was good but that was it. This place has been written up so it is crowded. The employees are pompous, and rude. The place has no atmosphere. Even the menu states if you don't like the service they recommend trying some place else. What is that?

Ray's the Steaks, a modest restaurant in a strip mall near Rhodes Street North in Arlington (look for the ABC store that's next door) serves a mean steak. A friend and I had the hanger steak, the second cheapest on the menu, and found it wonderful, properly cooked and marvelously flavorful. The sides? The creamed spinach was alright, the mashed potatoes garlicky but fortunately not too buttery. We arrived and told we'd have to wait, but the waitress did take my cell number and we retired down the street for beers and appetizers. The call came, we were ushered in, met Ray himself, and were seated. Service was prompt despite the crowding in fact, the waitresses' ability to negotiate between tables was amazing. And they had a party of 16 to contend with. They've also got a great wine list at reasonable prices. However, the place has absolutely no soundproofing so it's noisey. A small price to pay for a great steak at reasonable prices. Congrats to Ray.
