The road construction was a pain in the butt, but the reward of some great smoked meat made it worth the effort. I had the 3 meat dinner. Ribs, brisket and hot links. Fantastic flavor. Came with 2 sides. The beans were great and so...More

Getting to Ray’s was a bit harder than expected because of construction on Lindsey street, but it was worth the trouble. The brisket was very good. The turkey was good (but could have been a little more moist). The beans were ok. We really liked...More

Ray's Smokehouse is one of those places that you hear about and sounds too good to be true. A co-worker brought me here the first time I had come to Norman on business for lunch and we've returned here every time I come to town...More

Everything is good at Ray's. They sometimes run out of brisket at the end of the day, so if you want it, bet there early. Ribs are best in Norman. Our family enjoys eating here several times a month. Don't let the construction stop you...More

There are 3 great BBQ places in Norman. They are Rudy's, Vans and Ray's. However Ray's has the best side dishes. Rudy's sides andd even Van's can use improvement in this area.

Everything there is good. My wife loves the pulled pork because it has no chunks of fat as some others do. I love the spare ribs and my son loves the sausages. The sides are good also, especially the beans.

Ray has the best ribs in Oklahoma! They fall off the bone and hardly any fat. My six year old loves Ray!!

I am always happy with the food from rays. I like the lunch special they offer. Lots of choices depending on your mood. One of my favorite lunch spots.

Everything is great at Ray's except for the "getting there." The interminable construction of Lindsey St. has been hardship for customers and merchants alike! But the food is better than ever and it's worth traveling "off road" to get some of those ribs. I love...More
