If you live in Tarant County and you’re craving the famous cheddar fries at Snuffer’s Restaurant & Bar, you’re gonna have to go to Colleyville.

The Dallas-based chain, also known for its burgers, closed its Southlake Town Square location on Dec. 9, leaving one location in Tarrant after the closure of an Arlington location in summer 2018.

“After 12 years, we have made the difficult decision to close our Snuffer’s location in Southlake,” a company statement says. “This move, while painful, was necessary to the continued success of our higher-performing locations. We will do our best to find positions for impacted team members at our other restaurants as quickly as possible. We thank our loyal guests for their support and invite them to visit our other Snuffer’s locations across the Metroplex. Visit Snuffers.com for locations.”

Heck, we’ll tell you the locations: The last remaining one in Tarrant County is at 4717 Colleyville Blvd. in Colleyville, in the Colleyville Downs shopping center that’s anchored by a Whole Foods Market. There are also locations in Dallas, Addison, Greenville, Highland Village, Mesquite, Plano, Red Oak, Richardson and Rockwall.

The Southlake location was in a highly visible part of Southlake Town Square, near the the Harkins Southlake Town Center 14 movie theater and across from a two-story Barnes & Noble and a Cheesecake Factory — which tends to draw the diners that the Southlake Snuffer’s was lacking.

The Town Square is also home to a location of Five Guys and to an Austin-based Hopdoddy Burger Bar location that opened this year. Both have cult followings, and if they’re not enough competition, a location of popular New York-based Shake Shack is scheduled to open soon in the Town Square, possibly in the next few weeks.

According to CultureMap Dallas, in October, Snuffer’s also closed a long-running location of Snuffer’s in Dallas’Preston Center, CultureMap notes that “a newer-fresher Hopdoddy Burger” opened in the same center in 2015.

Another long-running Southlake Town Square restaurant, a location of Cafe Express, closed in summer 2018.
