Good Meal, Good Price

Had a good meal for a good price at Giffy's! The service was freindly, the food fresh and good and everything was womderful except they ran out of mashed potatoes! One member of my party wanted the meatloaf, but they ran out of mashed potatoes so she changed her order to her 2nd choice.

This is a family friendly place with great food and service. Staff went out of the way to be helpful and was nearby for extra drinks or anything else that is needed. The BBQ offerings are great. We tried the ribs, chicken and pulled pork, everything was great.

The ribs there are good, but the chicken is so awesome it kind of over shadows it. Get the half chicken meal with some onion rings and you won't be unhappy

The color should have been golden but it was brownish and tasted like liquid grease. It was inedible. We told our server what we thought of... More

BBQ is just one of the offerings here, and they should stick with their other subtitle, "Al, American Grill. The BBQ in their title was a major factor in my decision to get off the Interstate and drive several miles out of my way. Unfortunately, they badly need lessons in BBQ. The food tasted good but BBQ? I don't think... More

Introduced here by my wife, before we were married, on my first trip to visit her when we were dating. This is the first place we went to when I arrived in town. That was back in 2004. Since then we have married and live away from the area, but we return 7 or 8 times a year and always... More

I've tried this place numerous times through the years (due to other family members liking it) and have never come around to actually wanting to go there. On its best day it's average. Too bad because the prices are reasonable and a good BBQ place is always welcome. My complaints? Well, first of all, service is friendly but very spotty.... More
