Griff's Burger Bar is an old-fashioned drive-thru where you can still get a great burger, a greasy bag of fries and a skull-splittingly thick milkshake for about a five-spot. One of the last remaining links in a burger-and-milkshake empire that once could have given McDonald's a run for its money, the Broadway Griff's continues to thrive, its popularity sustained by nostalgia and the savage loyalty of its regulars.
