Tom has been raving about this place that he got turned onto by his coworker, so when he had a surprise day off today, he suggested we go to lunch. The name of the place may have the word "shack" in the title, but it is nothing of the sort. Griff's is in a small plaza just down the street from Quinnipiac University on Whitney Ave. and it has a brightly painted walls adorned with crayon drawings from many of their patrons.
While they do have some sandwiches, salads and wraps on their menu, Tom tells me its the chicken fingers that we have to order, so we split a 5-finger basket with fries, coleslaw and 2 sauces topped off with a Foxon Park soda for Tom and a sweet tea for me. The chicken fingers are HUGE, juicy and tender and the dipping sauces we tried were delish--honey mustard (anyone who knows me knows this was an obvious choice), sweet thang and ranch. We had a great lunch for a cheap price in such a comfortable, relaxed atmosphere--that's a win in our book. We'll definitely be back!
