A family owned place that covers all the basics with great service and prices to match. Great variety and something for everyone. A must stop while in the OBX.

Decent prices and portions even in high tourist season. Food properly cooked, quite tasty. Good variety--for "regular" American palate, but specializes in fried seafood. Not much for ambiance or heart health, but okay for occasional naughty diet splurge for beach visit lunch.

Spanky's is another typical beach eatery. The food is good and more reasonably priced than many other similar restaurants.

My 6 year old had been asking us to take him to Spanky's all week, so we took him and his two brothers there for dinner tonight. What a great place for kids - got tons of food for all and it was under $40. Quality of the hot dogs, fish tacos and chicken/fries was really good. Seems like it... More

I enjoyed one of my most favorite burgers here in December. I wish I could remember the name of it, or at least the toppings. Whatever was on it, that burger has made an amazing lasting impression on me! SO YUMMY! Can't wait to go back on my next OBX vacation!

My family of five ate here for less than $30. The food was good, service was fast, and staff was friendly. Great place to grab hit dogs, burgers, and fries!

Our family of 4 had lunch here during our recent OBX trip. Prices were very reasonable and the food was ok. Two of us had the shrimp burger which we liked. One had a hot dog which they didn't like. My husband had the crab cake sandwich and said it was greasy and mushy in the middle. Cute monkey decor... More

My dad raved about this place so we visited it on June 20th. The food and atmosphere were good. But we were lucky we beat the rush with a large party with limited seating. I have to bring up the fact that we seen 3 "water bugs" on the walls. I thought they were roaches. I can't recommend this place... More

The staff and food were both top notch. We had two large BBQ meals for only $16. You definitely get your money worth in food. Spanky's will always be a must visit on our trips to OBX.
