Epic Cheese Fries :: Snuffer's Style

dwinterb Feb 10, 2009 10:54 AM

Okay Chowhound. Former Dallas-ite, living here for 7 years, reading Chowhound for many of those years, my very first post. There's lots of talk about burgers here, and I've eaten some amazing burgers in this town because of all the discussion.

But let's talk about CHEESE FRIES. Specifically, like the ones they make at Snuffer's in Dallas. Spicey, smokey, salty french fries layered with an obscene amount of aged Cheddar, baked together in a foil lined bowl and served with liberaly amounts of ranch dressing for dipping. Often ordered covered in bacon, jalapenos and scallions.

Surely someone in this town must make them, right? I've scoured the boards here and everywhere else, but I'm coming up empty-handed. Can someone light my way?

      Seriously? I didn't realize Outback did their fries this way ... or do you have to order them with cheese etc?

      I'm thinking you won't be able to find Snuffer's fries anywhere but Big D, let me know if you do!! My thighs are glad I only make it to Dallas a couple of times a year, those fries call my name after a late night. I don't even bother with the burger so I can eat more fries....so bad!!

          You, sir, are a culinary prophet. Thanks to your site, I am making a bee line to Virgil's.

            You can get pulled pork on them too.
            And then probably die.

              If what you say is true, I will resurrect just to eat them again.

                Theyre absolutely outstanding and in all honesty, it would be a good death.
