What Do You Get at Ray’s For Your 99 Cents?

Earlier this week we reported that Ray’s Pizza (on Broadway btw. 54+55th) was not only selling pizza for 75 cents, but also had introduced a 99 cent menu featuring burgers, pasta, garlic bites and more.  Lunch’er Jesse, who tipped us off to the deal in the first place, was there the day we posted and had this to say:

Ray’s seemed quite busy around lunchtime today. It was a bit dead in the upstairs seating area when we first arrived, but the downstairs was getting crowded by the time we were ready to leave. As far as the menu goes, I tried to order a 99 cent burger, but was told it wasn’t available at the time. Two slices wound up costing $1.63. The bad news is that they have no flavor of any kind at all. It is simply like biting into a luke warm texture, sort of a mix between cardboard and a tepid sponge. With generous applications of hot pepper, parmesan and garlic powder, we were able to fashion it into something that might be mistaken for pizza.

We know what crappy pizza looks like… but what about the 99 cent menu!  Thanks to Luncher Wellerfan for taking the bullet on that front…


Went to check it out. Here’s what I got. They didnt have any burgers at the moment. I was most impressed with the pasta. Not sure if you can tell from the pic, but the pasta was a very good portion for .99.It could be a lunch on its own for some people. Also loved the steak fries, I was scared they were gonna be some flimmsy thin cut fries. The best quality stuff? Not really. Did it taste good? Yes! Does my stomach hurt now, yes! Haha it was worth it!

Can’t decide if we want them to finally start serving the 99 cent burger, or if some things are better left alone…
