Take a trip back in time to this old school East Village hang serving up the city's best fries, shakes, frozen yogurt and other delights at Reagan-era prices. Ray is an absolute saint. He's been working the night shift at this 24-hour-a-day haunt that bears his name since before most of us were born. Whether he's making you the biggest heap of golden fries you've ever seen or telling a story about the 'hood back in the day, you'll never leave Ray's unsatisfied. Go. Now.

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
