If you have ever been to Green River, Utah and not eaten at Ray’s Tavern consider yourself deprived. Ray’s is famous for their hamburgers and home cut fries. They also have a great selection of other grilled foods including Chicken and Pork Chops. In the Colorado River & Trail Expeditions family it is customary to stop at Ray’s after our rafting trips and whenever we have a large contingent in Green River. Usually the place is packed with over 100 people in the small inside dining room and the outside picnic benches. It has been in Green River since 1946.
If you are coming on a Desolation Canyon river trip or Westwater Canyon Trip make sure to plan on a night at Ray’s before or after your river adventure. You won’t be disappointed. Rays is located at 25 Broadway.
Another great time to visit Green River and Ray’s Tavern is during Melon Days. One year the CRATE crew was around town after a fall Cataract Canyon. We hand carved a Melon Helmet and headed to the celebration. It was a fun night and the Melon helmet was a hit. Everyone in Ray’s wanted a chance to wear it.
