Everything was great. We picked off each other's plates and tried it all. Smoke flavor in pulled pork was spot on.

This place has the best pulled pork in Norman. I'm not a huge fan of the brisket which is my favorite cut of bbq but the pulled pork is enough to keep me coming back again and again!

BBQ might not have been discovered here but Ray's fine tuned the quality, taste and variety that any lover of smoked meats would cherish. The service is incredible and portions abundant. I recommend without reservation.

This is the best BBQ in Norman. The service is great and friendly. My family used to think I made good ribs until I brought home some Ray's. We've never had a bad meal here.

Although it is a bit difficult to get to if you live anywhere but south central Norman, it is exceptional BBQ. It is a great place to grab a lunch or dinner. Super employees and ample parking. The ribs are to die for. Excellent sauce too.

Ray's BBQ is the best BBQ I have ever had. You simply can not eat a bad meal at Ray's. The meat is always tender and the sauce is great as well. The sweet tea is also very good. Ray and his staff are always very polite and efficient. Eating here is a real treat.
