Their drive through is a bit on the slow side and the dining room is a little lackluster, but it's so nice to still be able to get a good Rax roast beef sandwich when you want one. They also have a really good and...More

I really miss Rax Restaurant but this one was a treat to visit. As you would expect the food was good and it was a value, we had a family of seven and the price was fare.

Was there this week. The service in the drive thru was slow, they got our order wrong, but the server was very kind.

I worked at Rax as a crew member in high school and college, off and on between 1988 and 1994. Naturally, the chain holds a dear place in my heart and it was sad to see its precipitous decline. Having last eaten at Rax in...More
