Restaurateur Ray Waldrup is in business in Mt. Pleasant. While the yellow-painted “Ray’s BBQ” sign has been standing in front of the newly-renovated building for a few months, a crop of white “Now Open” sings finally popped up along the sidewalk in last week.
Located at 440 W. Coleman Boulevard (in the old SoCal Burrito/Red Pepper Squirrel building near Shem Creek), Ray’s BBQ specializes in hickory-smoked pork and chicken. They chop each pork order on the line right in front of the customer.
The menu also features smoked chicken, and rib plates, smoked brisket and ground chuck chili, sliders, hot dogs, deviled egg potato salad, hand-cut fries, jalapeño/gouda mac ’n’cheese, and two house-made cole slaws — a traditional mayo-based slaw and a sweet, zesty vinegar-based slaw with shredded carrots and sweet pickles.They're open Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., and on Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Call (843) 216-5373 for more.
