Missouri Life feature

Ray’s Diner was featured in Missouri Life magazine in 2015, “Ray’s has been an Excelsior Springs institution since 1932.”

Fourth owner of the restaurant, Brenda Fudge, second from left in photo, operates Ray’s Diner with help from her granddaughter, Khia Harris-Prewitt, left, daughter, Natasha Prewitt, and employees Diana Teegarden and Stephanie Chrisman.

The article highlighted what most old-time residents of Excelsior Springs know, that Ray’s Lunch is a cultural museum, reflecting not only the nostalgia of a by-gone era, but serves as a current news hub for the diner’s regulars.

“It’s a great memory. I’ll remind you of growing up,” Brenda said. “These are the kinds of restaurants that were around when we were kids. “There’s not many of us left.”
