Graffiti Junktion is a new burger bar that recently opened just minutes from USF on 56th Street. When we first checked it out during their soft opening, we just knew we had to have an event there…our first event for the Foodies Club at USF! The inside of Graffiti Junktion is awesome with designs covering all the walls. Sports fans can also enjoy watching the game on the various TVs spread around the restaurant and bar.
Specializing in burgers with names such as Iron City (Canadian bacon, egg, fries, American cheese, and onions) and Brotherly Love (peppers, onions, mushrooms, and provolone), most burgers are $10-$12 and served with french fries and are made fresh, never frozen. Wraps are also available for meat-conscious diners. Specials are held everyday of the week with Trivia Night Tuesdays and 1/2 off Appetizers Fridays from 4PM-7PM being two things that particularly caught our eyes.
Graffiti Junktion provided our members with complimentary samples of their Brotherly Love and Lone Star burgers, Graffiti wings, Turkey Graffito Wrap, Macho Nachos, and Zucchini Fries. Members were also able to order additional items at a 20% discount during our social. Some of the things members tried included the Buffalo Chicken Tots, Chili Cheese Fries, and Chocolate Cake.
Our event was held in a private back room that can be rented for private parties or catering functions. Two dart rooms were available for play in the private room and the main stage setup is not too far from it as well. Music can also be played in the room or turned off depending on whether you are having a meeting or social function.
The management and staff were very friendly towards our group and we especially loved our waitress who handled our party that was moving around the room very well and who consistently made sure that we were having a positive experience.
Our members used the hashtag #BullsLoveGraffiti to promote the event on Twitter and Instagram and to share their photos and feedback. On Twitter our tweets reached 7,167 people and 99,026 Twitter Timelines. See a full Twitter report on Hashtracking. See another report on Keyhole.
We had a blast Graffiti Junktion USF and our members really enjoyed the food. The proximity of Graffiti to USF makes it a great contender for specials events and the assorted specials make it friendly towards college students. College students can also take comfort in the fact that Graffiti Junktion is open late from Monday-Sunday until 2AM.
Make sure to call ahead to make sure the kitchen is still open if you want to order food as the closing hours in the kitchen vary.
We are truly wishing Graffiti Junktion the best of luck at USF and hope everyone goes out to try them and give them a shot! We will be back soon!
