Great food, but we just went for dinner and they had a sign up saying that the dining room is now only open for private functions? Oh well...

We used to get takeout from here every few weeks, and dine in on occasion. The last few times it was getting worse, but the very last time was just gross. We threw it out uneaten. The pulled pork used to be tasty and lean. Now a good half inch of fat sits at the top. Cheaper ingredients maybe? A... More

I had the chicken. Next time would do the pulled pork. Chicken presentation was great, but dry on the inside. Partner had chicken also. He said brisket for him next time. Beans were runny but tasty. Fun atmosphere.

They are now only offering catering and on site barbecue chicken for fund raising etc. I believe they are still using their restaurant space for private functions . and/or parties etc.

Today was our church Father's Day picnic and we had Giffy;s doing the chicken. So yummy and tender. Perfect seasoning. I haven't been to the restaurant in years. Now, I can't wait to go again. Local owned and operated too. They have received awards for their bbq. It is best in town.

Oh no! Our favorite BBQ place in the area is no longer open for individual meals or carry out. Giffy's will still do a party or other event, but the restaurant is no longer open for regular business. We really miss the opportunity to call and pick up the best barbecued chicken anywhere.

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

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.

We chose the lunch buffet, which includes pulled chicken qnd pulled pork. The server brought a small stack pf plates to our table incase we wanted seconds. The soup on the buffet was chicken. 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
