My husband went there with a bunch of guys from work and ordered 3 pies, 3 dozen wings and drinks. The wings were ready before the pizza and they brought the wings out without paper plates and when they went to ask for plates..they were denied saying "No plates until pizza!". It was a funny Seinfeild moment and they were joking about it until the pizza finally came.

When they brought the pie to the table they used the paper plates as oven mits with the exact number of plates as there were people. It was the best pizza in the world. We will live with the quirkyness if they just keep up the amazing pizza and wings. In a certain sense the arrogant behvior makes it more desireable..they know they have a good thing.
God love them. Ps. the one in Mesa has very friendly people there..great with kids...same great pizza

Pros: Unreal Pizza/Wings/ No Other Can Beat Them

Cons: quirky people working there..but well worth it

Ray's Pizza is the best. Real thin crust New York Pizza served in Scottsdale, Arizona. They sell pizza by the slice so it is ideal for lunch. Ray's is always busy, but they get you in and out pretty quick.

Well, after trying every pizza place in a 20 mile radius, I have to say Ray's is the only place that could last 5 minutes if it was located in NY. The crust is as right as it is possible to get without using the NY water, and they use real pizza sauce and real pizza cheese. It's a LONG way from my house, but any time I am remotely in the area I have to stop in.

Oh, and they give you the whole NY experience, down to the rude employees behind the counter. I think it's half real attitude and half show, but the whole package really makes me homesick for NY. :)

Pros: Great food, brightly lit

Cons: Employees attitude can be a bit of a put-off unless you take it as part of the package

Famous Ray's Pizza makes you think you are in New York again. Tastes just like the good ole NY pizza! The pizza crust tastes like crust should taste.They have a good variety of pizzas and pastas dishes.

Ray's Pizza has it all. Friendly staff, great Italian food, a clean pizza joint, and big plasma TV's in each corner. How can anyone complain? They know their regulars by name, and they sure are welcoming!

I moved to Scottsdale from San Diego about a couple months ago. I happened by Ray's one day so I went in to try the pizza. It was good. Although not consistant. Sometimes undercooked and the dough was doughy, and sometimes a little over cooked. Other things I noticed is that the slice sizes were not consistant. Sometimes you would get a much smaller than usual, and still have to pay full price. The biggest thing I noticed is that the manager and the employees are not very friendly and don't seem to appriciate your business. That didn't sit very well with me. Well after eating their several times it happened, I walked up to the ray's at Pima & FLW to have a slice for lunch, and there was a group high-school aged girls in line in front of me waiting to order pizza. They were all discussing what they wanted to order, and one of the employees behind the counter motioned to me to take my order so I said a slice of pepperoni, and gave him a twenty. Then the manager stepped up to the counter and rudely told me to go to the back of the line. I tried to explain to him that his employee asked me to order since the group of high-school girls where not ready to order. He for some reason didn't want to listen to reason, so I told him to give me back my #@!"%#!#! Money! He hesitated, and I was about to jump over the counter and beat him when gave me back my money. I stormed out of that place and will never return!
Well today I stopped in to New York Pizza Dept. for the first time. I heard it was a little greasy, and it was, but not too greasy. The dough or crust is thin. A little thinner than Ray's. The pricing is cheaper than Ray's, and I love the atmosphere. The employees seem to be very well trained unlike Ray's employees. I think Ray's has a
high turn-over, because I saw different employees working the counter on each visit. I guess no one want to work for that disgusting manager. Folks take my advice, and stay away from Ray's. Their pizza is not worth the grief!

I feel as though I am on a episode of Seinfeld when I walk into this joint. Great individual slices that they keep warm until you see them and then the go back into the oven for that extra crispy texture. I highly recommend the Chicken Alfredo pizza

I have to agree with the other guy who wrote that there was a pizza n-zi working there (N. Scottsdale location). There is DEFINETLY a very rude and psychotic man that works there who if God forbid is working alone will make you wait 10 minutes to order while he finishes wiping down the counter and then makes you wait another 10 minutes to pay if you use a credit card (which he doesn't like... I guess bring cash). DO NOT ask for Olives on the side or he may not sell you the pizza at all. I made that mistake and he informed me there were no sides but he will sell me an olive for 10 cents each. Then when I said that was fine and handed him my credit card again... he made me wait another 5 minutes to pay. He apparently had to go back and dry all the countertops immediately prior to taking the card which I was trying to hand him. Then when he finally came back he said that I could not use the credit card for anything under 2 dollars. I told him I didn't have cash and he told me that was fine but I would have to buy atleast 20 olives! Totally crazy man... I just wanted a couple I told him and he blankly stared at me. I was scared and just wanted the damn pizza and to get out of there... I had been there trying to pay for over 20 minutes and the pizza was getting cold. In all fairness everybody else there has always been more than pleasant and it is just one psycho man (who I think is the owner). l love that they have huge big slices (which you can buy by the slice, although it doesn't taste as fresh). Also if you are use to sliced olives on your pizza they don't do that... they only have huge whole olives which they will put on but I don't recommend it (it's disgusting). So I guess bring your own or just do pick ups like I do=) You know it has to be good pizza because I had swore I was never going back because of my experience but eventually gave in when I couldn't find any better. Good luck!

Ray's pizza certainly does live up to its reputation of serving authentic New York style pizza, but inside the pizza joint lives the mythological Seinfeldian Pizza Nazi. The only kind of customer that is allowed into the store is that of the domesticated, yielding customer, who will not cause any trouble in the shop.
Here are some dining tips:
1) Do not look the employees in the eyes.
2) Never wear hats or sunglasses in the store.
3) When done ordering, move two paces to the left to the cashier stand and wait for the cashier to arrive.
4) Never mutter the word "Seinfeld."

I have been going to several pizza places since moving here from NJ 9 yrs ago, this place is by far the best pizza I have ever had in AZ. The atmosphere is great and the employee are all family related in one way or another. They treat you really great. I personally go to the one on 7th st and Bell. They are the best and there prices are really worth it. No other pizza can compare.

Went to Ray's pizzaria. Right away I felt at home on the east coast The italian accents of the employees, the humor, and the smell! Oh my goodness, this is a real New York City pizzaria. I got a pepperoni large and 25 wing special. The pizza was so good I bring all my clients from back east to eat, it brings us all home. It is like a pizza stop on the way to a yankee game. Anytime I am home sick thats where I go. Thank you for not short cutting the sauce, it makes for big flavor. Eat pizza anywhere else, "FORGET ABOUT IT !"

Arizona native, but family is from Long Island. This is the best pizza I have ever had! I have had pizza all over the country, including Austin, Philly, Delaware, Minnesota, California, Nevada, Montana, Connecticut and this is by FAR the best pizza I have ever had. NYPD and Four Brothers are VERY distant second and thirds! Long live Ray's!

Ray's is by far the best pizza in Phoenix and sorrounding areas. (Not to mention the best wings!)They are the most authentic New York style pizza and are straight from the art of Manhattan. This is not the only location or the best location. My favorite location is at 35th Ave and Union Hills, but they have 7 or more other valley locations.

Rays should be #1 on this list but its not. Thats ok; any New Yorker that has visited Rays knows the deal. For anyone else wishing to try real authentic New York style pizza, this is the place. For get about those wanna be NYPD pizza joints. This is where you should go for pizza period. Forget about asking for a fork and knife (please!) when you go in there simply remember to use the Brooklyn fold and you'll be set! Oh btw they have excellent wings and sandwiches.. Here's the deal, Friday night, gime a pie and some wings and I'm good to go!
