Great burgers and great prices.

I've been here 5 or 6 times over the past few years while on vacation in OBX. This is one of the few places that I make sure I stop at a couple of times throughout the week. The burgers are very big for the price, the owners and staff are very friendly and the service is very fast.

We had their signature foot long chili dog. We were not disappointed! It's a very relaxing, homey atmosphere and the staff is very friendly and helpful.

The atmosphere was friendly and casual. Great fries and BBQ, and entertaining challenges. Was waited on personally by the owners, family owned and operated.

A go to place for a quick inexpensive bite to eat. Place can get busy but the line moves quickly and food comes out in a blink of an eye!

Not for someone who does not eat fried foods. I thought the staff was very friendly but did not care for my food. Just to much fried food and I did not want to eat a hot dog!

My family and I went there with friends for lunch. I ordered the Mahi Mahi tacos with mild seasoning, they were excellent! Everyone got something different, there were no complaints. Everyone that worked there was so pleasant. We will definitely be back on our next trip to the obx.

We wanted a hot dog for lunch, and saw Spanky's sign on the side of Rt 12. Stopped, my wife got her hot dog and I got a good crab cake sandwich. Nothing great about the place, but good food that is not a fast service restaurant. Might be called a "dive" but a fun place where locals eat, and... More
