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!

We had driven over from Angel's Camp to see the Copperopolis Town Square and a late lunch. Griffs was our choice and we all enjoyed the BLTs - lots of thick bacon, well cooked and very flavorful. Two of us added avocado and it was great. Brewed ice tea, with free refills hit the spot for us. Not very crowded... More

Not a fan, which is probably good for them as I'm sure I won't be driving through here again probably ever. I got the 6 ribs, which the highlight was that the meal was huge. Also, the restaurant is very nice in a really nice shopping like area. However, my ribs were definitely not anything special, if not borderline old.... More

Barbecued ribs, pulled-pork sandwiches, hamburgers...you name your "meat-dish" and Griffs Barbecue and Grill will serve it. On the weekend, you'll be joined at lunch by bikers on the move. Eye-candy.

Had lunch here at the outside tables. My husband had the pulled pork sandwich work onion rings and I had veggie pasta. Both entrees were good. Freshly brewed ice tea was nice. Good beer menu.

We were expecting some authentic BBQ when we stopped by for lunch recently. The pulled pork sandwich is the most popular menu item, according to the waitress, but it was not impressive, to say the least. First off, the meat was dry and had no smoke flavor. I think the pork had been slow roasted in an oven and then... More
