Just a few months after Mike Karns took over Snuffer's, he has announced his first round of changes to the long-standing cheddar fry chain. Say goodbye to Pepsi; Coca-Cola products will now dominate the soda dispensers at all locations. And while Snuffer's has always offered Bud Light, they're now doing it for just $1 for a 10-ounce glass.
Karnes is also adding sweet potato fries to the roster, which makes sense. The sweeter, denser spuds have enjoyed recent popularity because of their nutritional superiority. What doesn't make sense is the supposed health nuts who order will order them topped with cheddar cheese and bacon. The sweet potato fries are offered with all the same toppings as the spuds the Snuffer's brand was built on.
And then there's the guacamole.

Snuffer's fans have been requesting guacamole at the restaurants for some time, Karns says, though it seems more likely that Karns is adding guacamole to the menu because he's learned to make a lot of money off the avocado puree at his Meso Maya and El Fenix restaurants. Why not spread the green around?
House-made guacamole is now available at all Snuffer's locations, to be added to burgers, fries, sandwiches and on its own with chips.
The Coca Cola, Bud Light, guacamole upgrade will also be featured at the original Snuffer's on Greenville Avenue, which is expected to open in March.
