Griff’s Deli: Your Ultimate Destination for Delicious Dining

by | Mar 2024

TUCKED AWAY in a strip mall off of Scottsville Road is Griff ’s Deli, established in 2009 by owners and spouses Ed and Micha Griffin. The restaurant is adorned with airplane graphics and has ample seating inside and out. The menu is extensive and includes typical deli fare like paninis, wraps, salads, baked potatoes, and various other sandwiches, sides, and bakery items. 

The “extensive” part is the problem because everything we sampled was unbelievably delicious. And the portions were gigantic. Sadly, one can only eat so much in one sitting, and we would have felt sort of ridiculous returning twice in one day. But it was very hard not to. 

The charming cashier behind the counter, Mikayla, suggested the “Pick Any 2” with a loaded broccoli cheese baked potato and a chicken salad melt. Full disclosure — I don’t even like chicken salad. I was fully expecting to politely sample a bite and be done with it. 

I must confess I dreamt about this chicken salad! With apple slices, walnuts, and, I believe, dried cranberries, it has to be one of the best sandwiches I have ever had. The baked potato was loaded with cheese and fresh broccoli. It was absolutely delicious. 

My companion had the chipotle chicken panini and then proceeded to complain the entire way home that they didn’t order another identical sandwich to go. 

We purchased the last three cookies available, a clear indication of how good the bakery items are. We had a frosted sugar cookie and a white chocolate chip cookie. The third, some sort of cookie that I heard angels singing while eating, had salted caramel, toffee, and chocolate chips. 

Griff ’s has a fantastic kid’s menu. The restaurant says it serves macaroni and cheese in a dinosaur bowl that you can take home, and how great is that? The place is obviously very kid-friendly. 

The menu also has vegetarian options and sides that include potato salad, pasta salad, broccoli salad, and fresh fruit. 

Griff ’s Deli is great. I just have to remember to order to-go items, so I’m not sad when I realize I’m no longer eating its yummy food. GN
