Since 1987, Ray Mowery has operated Ray’s Place in South College, UT Knoxville’s oldest building, serving up great food and friendly service. Like the shop’s previous owners, Mowery is visually impaired, but he manages the business expertly while caring for each of the students that dines at his establishment.

To get things started, here’s a memory of Ray’s Place—complete with photo of Ray and Diane—from Undergraduate Admissions blogger Nate:
“My absolute favorite place to eat in the world! ‘Ray’s Place.’ Ray’s is a little known secret on the hill. It is owned by Ray…and has been for a long time. He runs this little shop with a big smile on his face all the time, and the best customer service imaginable.”
