Good diner food.

Stopped here for lunch and got good fun at a good price. Service was good and the atmosphere had a local feel to it. Got a hamburger and fries, my wife got an open faced turkey platter and we split a hotdog. Would recommend to anyone, it was a nice surprise.

We drove to the OBX on a chilly but sunny Monday holiday. Since it was a holiday in the off season, there weren’t a lot of places open for lunch. We saw the sign for Spanky’s hot dogs and stopped in there. They had a pretty extensive sandwich and salad menu. I took the hot dog and fries, my wife... More

Very rustic place inside, very friendly service and good food too. Had a hot dog, fries and hush-puppies, all good and hot.

We stop by every day for lunch and on the way out. Daughter thinks they have the best Grilled Chicken salad (she eats very healthy and exercises every day). The owner is always there and what a super nice person. We just love Spanky's. Next time give them a try instead of visiting McDonald or other fast food restaurant.

Tried out the hot dogs -- not too bad. The price is the lowest you will find. Service is fast. Good for family with kids.

Stopped for lunch, and was greeted by the owner. Very friendly. I had the shrimp sandwich with French Fries and hubby had the fish sandwich (flounder) with a side order of onion rings. Shrimp sandwich was very tasty, and came with a ton of french fries. Fish sandwich was a little bit on the strong fishy tasting side. My husband... More

We ended up here as we were on a motorbike road trip heading south and got rained in to our hotel down the road! Great little fine thanks to TA. Really cheap food with daily specials. The service is fast and comes with a smile, but that's about it. Food was tasty and well worth the money.

My wife and I stopped in for lunch the other day because we had one of those tourist coupons. Didn't know much about Spanky's, prior to the visit. Talk about friendly service!!!! It is a walk up order type lunch place, but the owner greeted us like we were old friends even though it was our first time. You can... More

This place is always consistent and dependable!! We are locals and have been eating at this place since it opened. You can't beat the prices combined with the fast, friendly service.

Spanky's Grille is a great place if you want that cheesburger with grilled onions and fries, or perhaps a hotdog and fries. Very affordable for every budget, and it is home-made! A variety of good eats can be found here, and this has become one of our OBX faves!!! So, Stop on in at Spanky's Grille, and grab ya a... More
