Ray's Place

People come from miles around just to grab a beer and an excellent hot beef sandwich served on a pile of napkins at Ray's. The optional horseradish sauce (highly recommended) will clear your sinuses. Cheese slices are available upon polite request. During the cooler months, try the signature Spanish stew. The homemade soups – pea or bean with ham – round out the menu. Outdoor seating and open late.

Great bar atmosphere, not overly loud. Good hot beef and hot ham. Great bloody marys.


Awesome hot beef and hot ham and cheese sandwiches!


I hate that their hot beefs keep getting more expensive, but they are still great!


Ray's is an awesome place to eat quality home-style food and have a drink. Their hot beefs and bloody mary's are very good. Staff is pretty friendly and the regulars who go there are welcoming. Prices for non-tap beer are pretty high; can get up to five dollars for a non-tap beer. Always has Wisconsin sports on the TVs. Worth checking out if you haven't already.


The best hot beefs around! Love this place
