Stopped here on our way to Angels Camp for lunch. Food was good, service fast and and friendly and very reasonably priced. Recommend the half rack of ribs and the blt with avocado.

I ordered the Slow Smoked Pulled Pork Dinner:: "1/2 lb. tender succulent pulled pork with copper hogwash (molasses & vinegar sauce)" $15.50 The small container of copper hogwash was the color of au jus & it was thin & vinegary, as stated. I didn't think it complemented the pork at all. I didn't see a bottle of real BBQ Sauce... More

Slow service, asked for burger well done, came oozing with blood. Sent it back waited 30 minutes for replacement. Other meals with party very average. Over priced and under deliver!

Never knew Copperopolis had a cute Town Square! Griff's was our first stop for lunch. We received a warm welcome and immediately felt "at home". The BBQ chicken sandwich and onion rings (light and tasty) were amazing. The pulled pork needed a little more BBQ flavor but the Hogwash Sauce was a great complement. The coleslaw is crunchy-fresh but needs... More

I was out for an H-D ride with the boyz and we happened into Copperopolis on our way back from Jamestown and stumbled into Griffs BBQ. It's located in the new town square and have traveled past there before but this was my first stop. We had several places to choose from but selected Griffs and must say I was... More

This is a comfortable space with a very rustic touch. Good selection of BBQ items as well as usual fair. Can set at the bar or booths or tables. They have a full bar. We had the pulled pork sandwich, ribs and tri tip. All were good but I would have to go with the pulled pork of the 3.... More

Griff's pulled pork and bbq'd chicken are really good. I haven't had very many of his other offerings. Well, the burgers and sandwiches are top quality meat and wonderful, flavorful and juicy. The meals there are enough for a small eater to enjoy there and take half home for another meal. All entrees come w/ your choice of a side.... More

Yes, my review title says it all. We have all had bad, old, over or under cooked bacon but Griffs gets it right. Thick slice freshly cooked and very delicious. I had the barbecue chicken (pulled chicken) with cheese, guacamole and awesome bacon. I don't usually waste my time or calories on bacon but this stuff was incredible...try it!
