*Snuffer's Cheddar Fries: Examining a Dallas Institution

Pat Snuffer of Snuffer's, who eats endless amounts of those amazing cheddar fries every day (wouldn't you?), told me that the show Food Paradise of the Travel Channel is coming out to his restaurant on lower Greenville Avenue soon to film part of an episode. Snuffer said the show will focus on the cheddar fries, of course, and the burgers.

Food Paradise is a weekly series that takes one topic, like tailgating, bacon, cookies, or sandwiches and scours the country for the "best" places to find those cuisines.

The locally famous colossal bowl of fries at Snuffer's is covered with as much as a pound of aged cheddar cheese, bacon, jalapeños and green onions. Snuffer's burgers are regular players on the "best burger" circuit, as well.

The episode hasn't been filmed yet, and Snuffer didn't think it would air until the fall. But, does this mean this Dallas gem will be packed with tourists and outta-towners devouring the cheese fries by the truckload? Well, just let'em try. Scott Reitz tangoed with the cheddar fries just recently and barely lived to tell about it. They'll learn quick...

If only Pat Snuffer would treat his employees fairly without skimming their tips....

When it comes to labor, he's the Wal-Mart of fern bars.

He's just biding his time until a class action suit lands on his over-salted doorstep.

I think this is AWSOME news. I've been going to snuffers since 1979, and the burgers are every bit as good as they were the first time I went.

 

And what better hangover cure than these cheddar fries. These are a Dallas institution, and if you try them you will see why people have been ordering them for 30 years.

 

These are the cheese fires all others are measured against!

 

Is this snooty gourmet food truck hipster food?  no!  But if you want some real, honest to goodness American food served at  a cool old place, this can't be beat!

 

They even play kick ass classic rock all the time!

 

I can't think of a better way to represent Dalas

Ugh. I loathe the Travel Channel and television in general. Luckily, I have a radio that only broadcasts operas from the 1930s so I don't have to worry about this garbage showcasing cheddar covering garbage.

can we just copy all the comments from the previous snuffers post to save us all the keystrokes and time of rehashing and cheesing it up in here

You change that headline to read "cheddar fries" instead of "cheese fries" and you change it right now!!!!

 @bigjondaniel The burgers are salty and the cheese/chili whatever fries are soggy, limp and greasy.  Could be the most over rated hamburger joint in Dallas.

 @FakeJonDaniel You ask yourselves why you comment here. You two dears are here to pay tribute to the gods of lunacy and bad taste.

In real cities like San Francisco and New York, which I visit regularly, such radios are taken for granted. Here, they would be viewed with mistrust or even outright contempt -- until some big-haired blonde reads in a magazine somewhere that it's "the latest trend" and suddenly every insecure, backwards status-hungry dolt in town is clamoring to get on the bandwagon, and talking about 1930s opera in a way they think makes them sound intelligent but really only reveals the depths of their ignorance.  Ugh. I wonder how I manage to survive here sometimes. Follow me on Twitter.

 @G_David apparently, the new comment system has locked mr daniel out.

Damn, it would seem you're right. Well, I'll step up to the plate: You're all a bunch of provincial, untraveled hicks, and cheese fries are an abomination before the contemptuous eyes of God. Further, my young children are tired of settling for the second-rate foie gras this burg dishes out. For my son's birthday, he demanded that we dine on that subtle, earthy delicacy at Au Pied de Cochon in Montreal. 

 

There. Suitably chastened?

 @Daniel  Almost perfect. Except I think if he were in Montreal, he's be combing record stores for obscure Norwegian death metal cassettes
