After many disappointing burgers (here and here) I have finally had a delicious burger at Ray's Hell Burger Too, same as Ray's Hell Burger, but you are served by a waiter and *drumrolllllll please* PAY with a credit card!! Being someone who never carries cash this is a very appealing to me (original Ray's is CASHONLY), although I do warn you this place gets really crowded pretty quickly. I went around 7 with my friend on a Wednesday and it was half full, but by the time we left, it was packed.
Last time I ordered The Big Punisher, and while that was pretty tasty, I decided to try something new, The New Jack Zing $7.99 (Blackened Burger, Pepper Jack Cheese, Grilled Onions, Charred Jalapenos, Roasted Garlic) with a side of their Fiery Pirañha Sauce. This burger was delicious-full of flavor. This was pretty spicy, I had to take a couple of breathers, there were seeds in the jalapeno, so if you don't like spicy this burger may not be for you. I also decided to try their Onion Fries $2.50...AMAZING, much better then their fries,highly recommend this.
Lili ordered a make her own burger with a side of ToTs $2.00. She loved her burger and the Tots were delicious, perfect and crispy.
The inside is a little dinky (but clean), but you don't go to a place for the inside, you go for the food, and they successfully hit the mark with theirs. The require your entire party to be there before they seat you, so make sure you guys are all together before you go!
Last time I went here, I gave the place a B. I really enjoyed their burger, but their buns were stale and the fries were blah. This time their burger, buns and sides were wonderful, so their grade has gone up in my book, and I am now fully on the Ray's Hell Burger bandwagon (although not enough to wait in a ridiculously long line to get their food, but then again I don't think I would do that for anyplace).
