About our restaurant
Graffiti Grill is the fulfillment of a long-time dream. Business partners Dan Rogers and Mike Popp had been talking for the past 10 years or so about the need in the area for a local restaurant serving fresh-sliced sandwiches along with a great burger. Both Dan and Mike are fans of American Graffiti - the cars, the music, the food, and the fun. Their dream was to build a place with the same kind of atmosphere, a fun and lively place where people would gather for the music and the decor as well as the great food. Together with their wives, Carrie Rogers and Marilyn Popp, they opened the restaurant in June 2011.
Our carefully researched and crafted menu has selections sure to please every member of the family. There are the old drive-in classics - like thick juicy burgers, fries, and ice cream - as well as contemporary fare such as entree salads and vegetarian options. Be sure to come in often for the daily specials. We've even got kids' meals with healthy side choices that youngsters will like and parents will feel good about.
About our building
Our property at 715 Rockland Road has been in the Rogers family for more than 50 years. The building was originally outfitted as a storefront for the family landscaping business, Rogers Nursery Inc. (at right are
D. F. Rogers Junior and Senior in their brand-new store in 1957).
Things have changed quite a bit since then, of course. Now you'll find a bright, clean, airy space with a full wall of windows, a cozy corner fireplace with hearthside seating in the cooler weather, an outdoor patio for summer, displays of artifacts and photographs relating to our "American Graffiti" theme, and amazingly detailed murals expertly hand-painted by Jim Brandonisio.
