Kent restaurant comes to 

life in professor’s book


KENT, Ohio (WKBN) — Anyone who has attended Kent State University or visited downtown Kent is familiar with Ray’s Place.


The restaurant has been located on Franklin Street since 1937 and is a must-visit for students, alumni and former Kent residents. Wedding parties have even stopped by the restaurant to take pictures.


Kent State University professor Patrick O’Connor has written a book about the hot spot called “Meet me at Ray’s.”


“So many people that go to Ray’s have such fond memories of the restaurant. I hear these stories all the time,” O’Connor said. “When I would travel the country wearing a hat or t-shirt with the Kent State University logo on it, people would always ask me about Ray’s.”  Read More
