Snuffer's Restaurant & Bar Closes Its Doors

Southlake’s Snuffer’s Restaurant & Bar closed their doors on December 9. The Southlake Town Square location first opened their doors in November 2006 serving American dishes like classic burgers, chicken sandwiches and their infamous cheddar fries. But now they will be closed for business to focus on their other DFW locations.
“After 12 years, we have made the difficult decision to close our Snuffer’s location in Southlake,” says Mike Karns, CEO of Firebird Restaurant Group, via Facebook messanger. “This move was necessary to the continued success of our higher-performing locations. We are doing our best to find positions for impacted team members at our other restaurants.”
This news, on top of other 2018 restaurant closures, inspired some locals to share their thoughts on the industry on the Southlake Parents Facebook page. Councilman John Huffman created a new thread on Wednesday afternoon where locals did everything from share what eateries they thought Southlake needed to come up with ideas for why closures happen in the first place.
“It may be that our town is no different for restaurants than any other place - I know it's a very unforgiving industry with very high closure rates in the first two years of business - but the Southlake community is special,” Huffman says in his post. “I know we can come together to support these businesses before we lose any more.”
Time will tell if local efforts can counteract these closings. But for now, locals won’t have to worry about being without burgers. On top of all of the other burger locations in Southlake Town Square, Shake Shack is still expected to open there before the end of the year.
