Snuffer's to Rebuild Iconic Greenville Location

Snuffer's
The original Snuffer's location at 3526 Greenville Ave. is going away soon. But, not to worry your little cheddar fries-laced arteries. The old spot is coming down so a new spot can go up. Late Sunday night Snuffer's announced via their Facebook page plans to rebuild:

"In March 1978 we were building Snuffer's on Lower Greenville. Now, March 2013, we're back at it ... this time building a completely NEW Snuffer's!"

Snuffer's has achieved icon status in the Dallas greasy burger market, for either one thing or another, the very least of which are certainly their famed cheddar fries,

When this spot originally opened in 1978, the one dining room sat only 55 customers. Owner Pat Snuffer added additional room to accommodate the growing crowds and eventually was able to seat, according to their site 350 guests.

All the employees from the Greenville location have been sent to work at other Snuffer's locations around the area so that when the restaurant reopens, familiar faces will be back.

"We closed for reconstruction last night," wrote Pat Snuffer in an email this morning. "The new building will look and feel like the old one, with many of the same design elements."

In March, Snuffer's Restaurants Inc., filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection because of debt incurred during the recession. However, the filing did not include the Plano and Greenville restaurants. The company's bankruptcy lawyer Steve McCartin told The Dallas Morning News that all Snuffer's restaurants would be offered to sell to raise cash for the bankruptcy filing.

Pat Snuffer had no comment regarding the ownership status of the Greenville restaurant.

There are six other Snuffer's locations throughout the area for your cheddar fries fix. The new spot is expected to open in early fall.

Hopefully they will demolish all the salt with the old building.

Relax, people, this is obviously April Fools.  It makes zero sense to rebuild one of your two remaining restaurants as you're trying to rebound from bankruptcy.  Please let it be April Fools.

Why of why, won't people respect the architectural character of a neighborhood.  Build new if you must, but with an old style.  The rendering above looks like a building in the suburbs.

So the old location next to Granada is being torn down? Where will the ghost live?

SNUFFERS!  You know how many times I drank my sorrows away at Snuffers, on Oaklawn, in the 90's.....a BUNCH.  Shitty desk job(s); hopefully I learned my lesson(s); sitting on dat ass all day, filling out TPS reports sucks.

Snuffers makes the best hamburger in Dallas, with the heavenly poppy seed buns, can be cooked to order, and offers 2 sizes of burgers, 1/4 lb. or 1/2 lb., especially important if you have kids.  Snuffers serves fresh cut fries, not the frozen ones found at most burger joints.

@donn_oh You must have Greenville Avenue confused with a street that doesn't have shitty-looking buildings already on it with lot-line busting McMansions surrounding it.

Your ship sailed a long time ago.

Which Snuffers serves great burgers? Certainly not the Rockwall location.

It's like they dip their burgers in cooking oil after frying.

No, I am not an advertisement for Snuffers.  Also an excellent burger at Rathbun's Blue Plate Kitchen in Preston Center, burger is wood grilled,and great fresh cut fries.  Another good burger and fresh cut fries at Off-Site Kitchen, but burger is on the small side.

Hulk,  Where do you go for a good burger in Rockwall?  Have you tried Bin 301?

Nope. Just looked it up, though, and I think you're thinking of Bin 303.

I must have driven by Olive St. 1000 times on 205 and really didn't even notice it.

Looks intriguing - I'll give it a go with the missus'.

Can't go wrong with Boots Burger for lunch.

@gabe48 @ScottsMerkin Hell you were going on about Whiskey Cake last week in multiple posts. I thought you worked for them!

It's expensive to eat out, I want good food for the money.  A good burger I left out, is the wood-grilled burger at Whiskey Cake in Plano, of course, the fries are fresh cut with sea salt, and a great patio.
