Griffin Grill combines an eclectic menu with an easy, but sophisticated setting centrally located in Sharyland. As the creation of Chef Antonio Huerta and Co-Owner Richard Krauss, Griffin Grill reflects their passion for dining and customer satisfaction.
We wanted to open a restaurant that reflected our values – a place that offers a pleasant meal in a surrounding where people can just be themselves. They don’t have to dress fancy to get a fine, good-quality meal at a reasonable price. We’re not too pretentious with our food at all. We just want people to come in, have a good time, and enjoy themselves in a relaxed atmosphere.Richard Krauss
Richard has more than 25 years’ experience in the hospitality and restaurant business, having worked primarily in management for Hyatt Hotels. Antonio previously owned a successful Italian restaurant in the Dallas area, Giuseppe’s, before moving with his family to the Rio Grande Valley. This is their first business venture together.
The Griffin Grill menu takes its inspiration mainly from classic American dishes, but they are creatively prepared, vibrantly presented, and influenced by cuisines from around the world. Whether it’s an All-American pancake breakfast or something enticing like sea bass in chipotle sauce, the Griffin Grill offers something for every palate at a no-frills price. Off-menu lunch specials are offered daily, prompting many customers to return frequently to see and taste what’s new.
An open ceiling, intimate booths, fresh flowers on every table, and an underpinning of jazz music enhance a mood conducive to conversation and fun for the whole family. Griffin Grill is open for breakfast and lunch, but beginning in early October, dinner will be served three days a week (Thursday, Friday, and Saturday). Griffin Grill is destined to become a neighborhood fixture and a Rio Grande Valley destination for quality dining.
