I totally understand the need for speed in a small deli but I can't stand it when the meat and cheese is pre-sliced. Maybe I'm a primadonna, but it just doesn't taste the same as fresh cut. On the good side, they were quick, reasonably priced and had a decent selection for a small store.

They make a good sub too! Coffee was not great. Way too weak for me! Other than that we stop here a lot when... More

They have just about all you need here including beer! The staff are friendly enough and the food is very good. They even have picnic tables outside if you care to eat there.

We've been traveling to Lake George for a number of years and always drive by here. Never really had a reason to stop in as we stay closer to another deli that fits are needs. That being said we decided to give it a shot. There's a small market with food and general supplies. There were a couple of people... More

A small deli with most of the items a vacationer may need. Carries daily newspapers and a good assortment of local craft beer.

My husband and I went to Ray's for subs a few times during our stay in Lake George. The service was good each time, with the exception of the times that the owner helped us. On the morning we left the owner charged us $2. too short, due to a miscommunication on his part with his staff. He then informed... More
