Ray's Place in Kent, Ohio They've been open since 1937 and they certainly know what they're doing! Kent is a college town, with Kent State University being right down the road, and this is where all the students hang out. You can sit in the bar area downstairs or you can go upstairs to sit in the other bar area or the dining area. The food is what keeps everyone coming back though! They have the best chili and their burger selection is awesome. Nothing beats the MOFO burger or the Stuffed Gourmet Burger! Ray's Place has won awards for their burgers and Michael Symon even raves about the MOFO. Then there's the chili, which is simply delicious and perfect for a cold Ohio day.

It's our well-kept secret but we want to share it with you! Celebrating 78 years now! Charlie Thomas still owns it and he's a sweetheart! He recently donated a literal bucket of chili to my mom and I for a Super Bowl party we were throwing. We were having it for a local homeless shelter for veterans. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lXl0sYfsB7M#t=50 I started going to Ray's Place with my mom and dad when I was a little kid.
