The food pyramid was recently revised to include clearer portion measurements, active imagery, and a secret chamber in which to hide deep-fried snickerdoodles. Quell your hunger's ancient call with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of bold-flavored fare at Riff's Joint in Easthampton.
Owned and operated by Easthampton residents Rich Lyman and Jeff Cahill, Riff's Joint spices up everyday meals with bombastic and spunky takes on traditional burgers, burritos, and salads. Carnivorous consumers can sink canines into a starter of hoisin-marinated beef sticks ($6.00), while voracious vegetarians can test their mettle against the sweet-potato fries, which are flanked by jalapeño honey-mustard sauce and cooked in pure kindness ($4). Build an edible tribute to tastiness with Riff's custom-creation station, where gastrological Gauguins can craft Thai-inspired burritos ($8.50) or dramatic Greek cheesesteaks ($8.50). Fans of dining predetermination can opt for house burgers and wraps, such as the Alamo Wrap made with in-house roasted turkey ($7) and The Bandit, an all-beef patty topped with grilled onion, cilantro, and chipotle mayo ($8). Like romantic picnics and amorous parole hearings, Riff's is BYOB, letting customers method-act the role of master sommelier.
- Searched for a wi-fi restaurant and found Riff's Joint. What a great find! Friendly people and clean comfy atmosphere. – James C., Yelp, 2/20/2010
- Not only are their burgers and fries hand cut and organic, but the food is unbelievably good (and relatively cheap!). If this place was in Northampton it would be packed every night. – R C., Yelp, 1/10/2010
