No. 85 Cheese Fries at Snuffers
What do you get when you melt mounds of hand-grated Wisconsin cheddar cheese over a mountain of freshly-cut French fries, add crispy shards of bacon and then heavily sprinkle chopped green onion and jalapeños into the mix? OK a lot grease if you dare eat it with your fingers. But the world-class often imitated by seldom equaled Cheddar Fries at Snuffers deserve knife and fork treatment if you know what's good for your shirt. They are a meal unto themselves and one of the more appetizing appetizers around. Kids dig them too, sans the bacon, onions and jalapeños. Well, maybe the bacon can stay.
