Upstate NY-Gibby's BBQ Sun, 06/5/05 10:48 PM (permalink)
Has anyone heard of or been to Gibby's BBQ?
It's located off exit 10 on I-87 north of Albany and south of Saratoga. There is a sign for it at the exit, but i've never had the opportunity to stop. If anyone knows of it please let me know if it's worth a stop.

    It's name is actually Giffy's, it is on route 9 in Clifton Park between exit 9 and 10 off of I87, It is very good low prices friendly staff for Upstate NY not bad BBQ, not as good as Brook's but not too bad.

        don't bother with Giffy's...better to go to Capital Q in Albany.....also I think it's called the Pig Pit in Cohoe's or PJ's up in Saratoga...Giffy's is cheap...but not good.

          I think I'd rather go to the Fish & Game club in Hartford NY for one of their monthly Chicken Barbecues. The marinade they use for the chicken is top-secret. It's creamy & vinegary and absolutely delicious when cooked over hot coals.

            I would second LindaW's comment on Giffys. Giffys is not good. This is based on multiple visits and not just one bad experience. Somethings are acceptable, but overall a poor value even if considered cheap.
