After 30 years in the business, the sandwich-fixing masters at Ray's Downtown Deli still satiate ravenous appetites with custom sandwiches, grilled burgers, and house-made soups and salads. Patrons engineer their ideal sandwich from an extensive list of fresh ingredients, or choose one of the deli's specialty sammies, including the Downtown deli roast beef classic, a generous portion of tender meat tucked beneath a green chili and served on an onion bun bound blissfully together with swiss and cheddar cheeses ($6.25), or the turkey bacon club, which crowns a poultry pile with smoky bacon and provolone cheese ($6.25). On the hot menu, juicy burgers and chicken sandwiches rub delectable elbows with daily specials ($6.42+), including meatloaf and veggies lounging in a pool of gravy on a creamy mashed-potato raft on Thursday, and an italian-sausage grinder that gives Tuesday new meaning alongside a supporting cast of house-made salad, pickle, and a small drink. Evenings after 5 p.m., the sounds of live bands and DJs permeate the bar-like atmosphere at Ray's Downtown Deli, leaving diners free to chew without whistling their own theme music through rye-bread-dusted lips.
