Cheddar fries fans are excited that Snuffer’s Restaurant & Bar will be coming back to Plano, Texas, this week.
The burger and cheddar fries dining spot and bar started down on Lower Greenville in Dallas and had been in Plano on Preston Road before closing that local location, now home to Smoke.
Snuffer’s came back in the area recently when a location opened west of U.S. 75 in Richardson on Campbell Road. Service at the bar and restaurant has been solid, but the place could use a host when it gets busy.
That Richardson location is often packed. The burgers come out a little red and the cheese fries can be ordered in several sizes.
Snuffer’s is also open in Rockwall, and we like the location over-looking the lake, but the service east of Lake Ray Hubbard does not remind us of the original known for its great service.
Check out one of the Snuffer’s locations and leave a Yelp.com review.

During the meeting, the City of Frisco will showcase its ‘Year in Review’ to residents attending in person. This video presentation will feature the major accomplishments of 2016, including events like the opening of The Ford Center at The Star, and major groundbreakings for projects like Frisco Station and Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children.
Also on the agenda for discussion are topics affecting Frisco residents this spring, including:
- New emergency alert system
- Road construction updates (featuring projects on F.M. 423 and U.S. 380)

Residents will also have the chance to ask their own questions.
The Town Hall meeting will be held from 7 to 9 p.m. in the council chambers at the George A. Purefoy Municipal Center, 6101 Frisco Square Blvd. Various city department representatives will staff ‘information stations’ beginning at 6:30 p.m. in the atrium.

Mobile users will receive a voicemail message with the call-in phone number and instructions prior to the event. Landline users will receive a phone call Monday night, inviting them to join the meeting.
Town Hall meetings last approximately two hours and are typically held three times each year.
