Volume One’s Guide to Dining in the Chippewa Valley
Eau Claire, WI
Known for its hot beef sandwiches, Ray's is the perfect place to relax with some grub and a beer. It has a foundation of regulars, but they make newcomers feel as welcome as Norm at Cheers. An outdoor patio, specialty beers, and nine taps are available. Delectable homemade food is available after 10am.
People come from miles around just to grab a beer and an excellent hot beef sandwich served on a pile of napkins at Ray's. The optional horseradish sauce (highly recommended) will clear your sinuses. Cheese slices are available upon polite request. During the cooler months, try the signature Spanish stew. The homemade soups – pea or bean with ham – round out the menu. Outdoor seating and open late.
