My family and I stopped in here due to the raving reviews. I understand there are traditional must-try establishments everywhere, but I just don't get it with this place. I'm guessing it's probably because the place is cheap. The food was average. We ordered hot dogs, mahi-mahi tacos, BBQ sandwich, fries, and banana pudding. It was all freshly cooked, but... More

Very affordable and busy. I can see why this restaurant does well. Good selections and cheap. Two of us got the fried shrimp and clam basket. Lots of food and it was good. They offer a burger called the Viking burger and it's HUGE. The guy in the booth next to us ordered one and the staff rang a bell... More

I had the hot dog and fries and they were awesome. Burgers looked great as well as the chopped steak with mash potatoes!

We were expecting a sit down diner type place, Spanky's is more like an indoor DQ. The food was very good and the prices fantastic. You place your order at the counter and they bring it out to you. Very pleasant employees.

Great food and great price! Have been here each time for the last three years we have visited and has been more then great each time. The owner has always been working up front each time we have came and is very friendly. Also noticed a great deal of locals eating lunch here which has something to say. The line... More

All of the previous reviews were right about this place! The owner was extremely friendly and working right up front. There is so much to choose from. The NC bbq sandwich was delicious! Its a must try and not to mention inexpensive!

This is one of the very few places we make it a point to visit more than once during our week stay at the beach. Food is top-notch and the service is fantastic. The owner is so friendly! He has been there working every time I've gone in and always carries on a conversation with all of his customers. It's... More

We stopped here because we wanted a good burger and this place had good reviews. The burgers are delicious! You could tell that the burgers were made fresh and not some pre-frozen patties that some other places have. The prices are very reasonable and the service was great!
