GriffithsDrive, the Owner, says:
It is a legacy that follows the Griffith family for the better part of a century, and is just as much a part of the City of Griffin, as it is a part of each Griffith. From 1942-1950, Rollin Griffith Sr. worked at Ward’s Drug Store managing the lunch counter (better known as the soda fountain). He regularly made items like ham sandwiches, milkshakes, and fountain drinks. The things he learned there, he carried over into his own business, a drive-in called The Spinning Wheel. From 1950-1953, Rollin Sr., Lucy (his wife), and Rollin Jr. (his son) ran the Spinning Wheel. Rollin Sr. passed away in 1953, and until 1955 Lucy, Rollin Jr., and Norma (Rollin Jr.‘s wife) ran the drive-in. Today you can still find the hamburgers, hotdogs, fried chicken, steak sandwiches chili, and slaw that has made Griffith’s a household name in these 30+ years. You can sit and have the best glass of sweet tea in the city, and enjoy a slice of Mrs. Norma’s homemade pound cake that will satisfy the fiercest of any sweet tooth in the south. You’ll find yourself suspended in time, serenaded by the jukebox, drinking a hand-dipped and spun milkshake, and plenty of southern hospitality and charm to spare.You can find a Griffith there almost any time the doors are open. Come in, sit, and chat for a spell, we love to have company!Welcome to the family, y’all!
