Snuffers (Preston Center) - December 28, 2009

Monday's burger adventure took us to the Preston Center location of Snuffers restaurant to try their burger. Snuffers has been open over 20 years in the Dallas area and specialties include burgers, salads, chicken sandwiches, Snufferitas and cheese fries. We sat upstairs and our waiter quickly came over to take our drink orders which were brought to the table fairly quickly after which we placed our food order. I ordered a bacon cheeseburger with mayo and we ordered a large cheese fries for the table. The waiter asked if medium rare was ok for the burger and that is how I ordered it. About ten minutes later the cheese fries and the following burger was placed on the table:

The poppy seed bun was toasted crispy and the bottom bun was lightly coated with mayo. The patty was placed on the bun and cheddar cheese was melted generously over the patty. Crumbled bacon generously coated the cheese. Taking my first bite, I tasted the well seasoned patty that had flavors of salt, pepper and garlic but unfortunately the bun was very chewy almost like it had been left out for a while. The bacon was crispy and tasty and added a great smoky flavor to the burger but I really prefer slices of bacon instead of the crumbles. The patty was juicy and was cooked just past medium rare which was great.

Overall, this was a good burger with well seasoned patty and perfectly melted cheese but with some shortcomings like the chewy bun. I am not sure if a different location would have been better or worse but I definitely would not hesitate to order another cheeseburger at Snuffers.

Ratings (1-25):

Bun - 16, well toasted but very chewy bun

Meat - 19, good salt, black pepper and garlic taste, well cooked

Appearance - 19, all ingredients melted together nicely, juices running out of patty

  1. Don't forget the fried shrooms-they're definitely known for those too. Pretty much everything at Snuffers is mighty good and larger than you need. Didn't stop us from eating it all up! Another great meal. My heart hurts...
