Ray's has decent burgers but to be honest I've had and have better for cheaper. The best thing on their menu is the crab bisque. It'll take five years of your life but it's delicious and has nice chunks of crab. Side story: one time I was sitting next to a table with a man who I thought was on his death bed. He ordered the au poivre burger with foie gras and bone marrow. That was like a $40 burger... Not to mention the crab bisque and a milkshake.

Eating here after reading the reviews, I was highly disappointed. Ray's Hell Burger serves a very average burger, and seems to go out of its way to make an inconvenient and uncomfortable dining experience. First noticeable issue; the air conditioning is practically non-existent (possibly at their old location...I read something about them moving in 2013). So, if you're trying to beat the heat, you might want to avoid this place. Also, it becomes immediately apparent that seating is limited, which is a problem due to how popular this place is. Getting past first impressions and to the food ordering. No soda refills (cans/bottles only), so I hope you aren't too thirsty. Bring cash, because they don't take credit cards (which makes no sense for a brick-and-mortar restaurant in this world). As is common with the "gourmet burger" places that have become popular, Ray's is a bit pricey compared to a place like Five Guys. Also, the employees' attitudes seems to range from disinterested to passively hostile, so don't expect to have a friendly conversation. Now, to the food. As I said before, the burgers are best described as average. For a supposedly gourmet burger joint, that doesn't cut it. I find myself not having much to say about the burger itself. The food wasn't bad, it was just a normal burger disguised behind some fancy ingredients and sauce names. It's just so odd to see all of these great reviews for a place that serves such an unremarkable burger, while providing a customer experience that openly defies patrons to be comfortable or provide a good dining experience. It's almost comical how bad everything is here outside of the food. I'm just glad I didn't have to experience the restrooms, who knows how bad that could have been...

First we got thinned Coke from the fountain, obviously made with tap water, tasting much like chlorine. The botteled Coke then came without a smile. The so called 'Hellburger' was not the hell of a burger but just a regular burger - nothing special at all. The fries were soaked with grease. The Cheeseburger was just ok. In total too expensive for the quality.

De-li-cious!! Burgers were big, moist & seasoned to perfection! Won't break your wallet, casual & fun. A must go if you're coming to the DC area.

Steak and cheese is what you want, period. You probably won't be disappointed with other items on menu, but if your goal is max happiness, it's an easy choice. One star deduction because they took bottomless fries off menu.

Ray's is closed. Now there is a chili place, just as good, but don't go there expecting hamburgers.
