Although we have dined at Snuffer's on Greenville Avenue in Dallas, Texas, on several occasions, we'd never heard of a haunting there. After reading a listing that we saw in Dennis William Hauck's book Haunted Places, we had to go back and try to find out more. The original Snuffer's is located at 3526 Greenville Avenue between Martel Avenue and Longview Street in Dallas. It was opened on June 28, 1978 by Pat Snuffer. At that time, the restaurant consisted of one room with fifteen tables and a service bar. The menu contained the same basic entrees that it does today: burgers, sandwiches, and the cheese-fries that are the house specialty. Snuffer's eventually caught on with the college crowd, and the restaurant expanded with the opening of the back area with a garden atmosphere. It was after this new addition to the restaurant opened that the employees and customers would occasionally see a hazy spirit walk the hallway between the old and new sections. It would pass out of the hallway and comes a few feet into the new section, then return to the hall. Our waiter seemed surprised that we knew that Snuffer's was haunted. He told us that he'd never had a customer mention it, although everyone who worked there knew about it. The answer to the obvious question that we asked next, though, was that he had never seen the ghost himself. We asked if there were any ideas who the spirit might be, and he said Snuffer's had a tragedy early in its history when a woman was killed in a scuffle in the ladies' restroom. Since that was the only incident of that kind in the history of the restaurant, everyone seems to think that it's her spirit who walks the hall. The restrooms are located off the short hallway between the old restaurant and the new addition. Snuffer's now has another location in the Dallas suburb of Addison, and the original location has added another room and a patio. Neither of us saw or felt anything unusual, but from now on when we go back we'll be looking for something other than their great cheese-fries!
