Snuffy's is the kind of place grandparent's love to take thier grandkids. The friendly service, made-to-order malts, burgers, and fun, retro-style dining area make it a comfortable, family atmosphere. The bargain basement prices are a bonus.

Besides burgers, Snuffy's also sandwiches, salads, and soups. Or, just order a big helping of chilli cheese fries; it's enough to share. Treats include malts, phosphates, sodas, and sundaes.

Make a stop at Snuffy's before or after visiting Como Park for a fun family meal. It's also a kooky place to take a date, or stop by and grab a malt to go. It's the sort of place that makes you smile no matter your age.

I have been going here since I was five, and I have yet to find a better malt. People always tell me: go try a malt at such and such, or try this place. It has yet to be better than Snuffy's. the malts here aren't so thick you have to chew or chunks of food in them (go get a Blizzard from DQ if you want that!), they are pure liquid smooth-ness. They have many variations on the menu but you can always ask for a custom-made!
Otherwise the rest of the shop is 50's style with burgers and grilled cheese. They offer many other drinks like phosphates and real sodas. The decor may be a little run-down but to me it shows how they have stood the test of time (and won awards at the same time!)

Try the Roseville location!

I take Snuffy's for granted being that I can walk to it but each time I bring someone new there I love watching their reaction to the Snuffy's ambiance (red striped walls anyone?!) and the traditional soda shoppe fare. You're not coming here for a fancy dinner folks so keep that in mind as you read the reviews...it's a burger and malt shop and really doesn't need to be anything more. The burgers are tasty and the malts are thick and it will run you less than you'd spend at a meal at TGI Fridays but with much more flair and substance than McD's.

The friendly staff are always welcoming and helpful and the service is fast. Make sure to try the brownie malt/shake (w/caramel if you have a real sweet tooth).

After reading some positive reviews of Snuffy's Malt Shop, I stopped there for dinner with four friends. I ordered a grilled chicken sandwich and a chocolate malt, and they were tasty. And our server was quite friendly and competent. However, it wasn't remarkable enough to warrant the cost. A sandwich (without fries) and a milkshake cost me $12.00, which was simply too much money for what I got. The consensus of our group was that the food tasted great but wasn't worth the cost. If money is not an issue for you, you'll probably enjoy the classic American menu and decor at Snuffy's. But comparable food for a better value can be found elsewhere...

A long-standing favorite in the Roseville community for decades, Snuffy's is still a great place to bring the whole family to enjoy the comfort food of a classic American malt shop. Some of the best burgers in town, (I usually order sauteed onions with mine), and all kinds of customized options available for those wonderful malts - my current favorite is blueberry butterscotch.
