In 1989 when Gene Street Jr. and Dace Street opened Snookies on Oak Lawn they most likely had no idea what an institution the bar would become. To this day they serve up one of the better chicken fried steaks in the old family Street tradition. It is with that in mind we pass on the news we received this past weekend that Snookies will be shutting their doors after 26 years this coming Sunday night.
The story is a familiar one where an institution loses their lease and decide to call it quits after so many years. This coming from one of the most respected restaurant families Dallas has ever seen. We understand that a farewell bash is set for Friday, May 29th, and of course everyone reading this is invited.
Look for more news from the Street family as they will soon announce their latest concept, Rebel Rooster which will be located on Cedar Springs which will offer some incredible fried chicken.
Be sure to stop by Snookies this week for their insanely good chicken fried steak or burgers.
