Traffic Jam & Snug in Detroit Destroyed by Fire
Thankfully, there were no injuries. However, there was repairable damage to the restaurant. The restaurant's first floor, second floor, and roof were completely ravaged by the fire, and "the structure appears to be a total loss." Some reports say that the attached brewery may have been spared, but that's unclear at the moment. The Shinola store (famous Detroit watch store, also attached) was spared, saved by a firewall.
The owners made a post to the Traffic Jam & Snug Facebook page, expressing their devastation at the loss. They also took a moment to thank patrons for all the kind words sent their way. There has been an outpouring of love from Detroiters and patrons in the comment section of the post.
Traffic Jam & Snug Featured on the Food Network
The Traffic Jam & Snug has been so popular over the years that it has even been featured on the Food Network, specifically Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. During its 2017 appearance on an episode of Triple D, Traffic Jam & Snug's brisket and fresh paninis were featured for Guy Fieri to try, and they were a big hit.
Hopefully, the owners are able to recover from this sad and unfortunate loss.
