So long Snuffy.
Two weeks ago we told you that the original Snuffer's was no more. Earlier today Instagram (which has been proven to be marginally more accurate at breaking news than CNN) reports that it is gone.

Snuffer's to Rebuild Iconic Greenville Location

Instagram user Doylerader posted this photo to his stream earlier today, saying simply, "Bye Snuffers." The building was demolished a few moments later.

In the wake of the destruction a new Snuffer's will be built on the same location. The original building was built in 1978 and owner Pat Snuffer is devoted to recapturing the old charm in his new building. "The new building will look and feel like the old one, with many of the same design elements," Snuffer said in an interview with City of Ate.

But how's he going to recapture the smells?

the restaurant may have started in '78 in the old haunted section next to Granada. the section with the patio was added later and was originally I think a TexMex venture that failed, so it then became an expansion of Snuffers. hope that helps?

I used to work in the kitchen back in the 80's in high school.  The burgers were amazing back then.  They were custom ground tenderloin beef, lots of fat and thick as a beef filet. We caked one side of the patty with a special salt and spice mix, flipped it once and cooked it to temperature. The patty was so thick, the salt wasn't overwhelming and you could taste the beef juices.  Not the same burger anymore. The managers back then were QC nazis.

Hopefully they will demolish the salt too.

Hopefully they get a new staff that's what really needed change.

It was torn down because the place was falling apart. Not because of ghosts or to be an asshole.

If the new one will look and feel the same as the old one why even bother tearing it down??

Has anyone started leaving candles and flowers yet?

The rubble looks like a big pile of Snuffer's chili cheese fries.

I hope the Granada had enough time to protect itself against airborne snufferdust.

Wonder if the ghost will still be there? ;) They've had sup-bar code inspection scores, and reviews online have been pretty bad - so maybe the updated space will function better.

In other unrelated news the cities cockroach population has tripled and cases of food poisoning reported by local hospitals hit an all time low.

The original Snuffer's was dead when they added the patio and large addition on the north side. Not that it was a bad thing. Gotta love the cheese fries and i had my first quesadilla there.

The Snuffers' ghost is not going to like this.

There was a ghost in that building. Wonder if that had something to do with the decision.

The original building was not built in 1978. More like 1938...so stupid to destroy that part..he could have at least kept that corner. Now it will go the way of so many 'originals' which have lost their way (and customers).
