Where everybody knows your name?

Hand-battered Onion Rings cooked to perfection!
Okay, so it's not a neighborhood bar in a charming historic area of Boston. However Snuffy's in Hutto Texas seems like that kind of spot for regulars. The local bar with good food & even wifi sits directly on highway 79 in the middle of Hutto. It just might have been overlooked a few years ago however recent growth has been getting the tiny town just 30 minutes from Austin an incredible amount of notice. There seems to be much to take a second look at these days.  Snuffy's might seem like a neighborhood bar but the food they offer really hit a sweet spot for us one recent visit. The menu is simple,  hearty & the service was prompt. Our waiter actually came back to the table several times to check on our response to our heartys sandwiches & onion rings. The pulled pork sandwich & burgers were good but oh, those onion rings!! Hand-battered & fried in small batches. They are everything which a satisfyingly, guilty pleasure of bar food should be.

Slow cooked daily, the pulled pork sandwich is fabulous.
1/3 lb burgers at under $5 were a hit.
Snuffy's has been around as a tavern or bar since the 1940's but is rumored to have been home to several former businesses which include a funeral home & even a potato chip shop which used to sell potato chip snacks for a nickel a bag. Regardless of which story is to be told or believed in this small town, tall tale of humble beginnings; the food at Snuffy's Place was a hit.  How much of a hit?  Well, we are planning another visit on a weekend not too far away.  Best time of day to visit Snuffy's?  Daytime seems best to beat the evening crowd & have a little more time to enjoy the food but then where else can a tiny Texas town offer full bar, good food & wifi?
