    The Drinks Fail to Deliver at Snack

    Located in the seemingly doomed Henderson Avenue strip where Horne & Dekker, Fish City Grill and Urbino all met their maker, Snack seems to be the unfortunate red-headed stepchild of the otherwise successful ventures from dynamic duo Avner Samuel and Jon Stevens.
