Awesome old school diner. Not many upgrades over the years, but very clean.Yes, The food is AMAZING and fast friendly service is always a stable. Now that the smoking ban is in effect state wide it is even better. It is so good my wife and I (non-smokers) would go in before the band and not shower until we ate first then went home and showered. That is how good their food is!

Ray's Family Restaurant has been a staple to Elgin for over 30 years, and will be for a long time to come. Their hours are Monday-Saturday, 6 am to 9 pm, and Sunday, 7 am to 3 pm.
Gift certificates are also available for a nice gift for those you know who enjoy the comfort of "diner food." A fairly small restaurant, you may choose to sit at a booth, table, or at the counter. Their delicious breakfast menu offers such favorites as steak and eggs, 3-egg omelettes, waffles, pancakes, french toast, as well as many other specials. A huge lunch menu boasts dozens of items including 1/4 lb burgers, sub sandwiches, patty melts, and sandwiches on GIGANTIC crossaints. Their gyros is delicious, while it is not made on-site, it is "real" gyros, that you swear was just sliced in the kitchen before it comes to your table. Hot sandwiches like turkey, roast beef, and chicken are complimented with creamy mashed potatoes and gravy, and their thick cut fries never disappoint. Dinner selections range from pork tenderloin, roast sirloin of beef, and 1/2 fried chickens, to seafood selections sch as haddock, jumbo shrimp, fried ocean perch, deep sea scallops, and fish and chips. If you are going for seafood, you might try the assorted seafood platter, which gives you a combo of shrimp, perch and scallops. Italian food lovers can decide on one of their many dishes from the "taste of Italy" section of the menu. Light eaters or calorie watchers will be pleased to know that 11 salads are offered, and soup is always homemade. If you have room, how about ordering the "St. Charles Street Banana Split", which is your choice of any 3 ice cream flavors, 3 toppings, whipped cream and a cherry on top. Ice cream sodas and other desserts are available as well. I enjoy Ray's because it is very affordable, it is "comfort food", and they are very quick to have your order ready for you to pick up.

Especially on the prices......very inexpensive and you always leave very full.
I always have their skirt steak....which always falls of the plate and their specials always are a winner.
