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.

We stopped there yesterday for lunch and my whole family loved the place! Homemade food and a great value! The 4 of us ate for $36. You can't have lunch at a fast food place for that price. The onion rings and hush puppies are super yummy! We will definitely go back the next time we're in the Outer Banks.... More

$.79 hotdogs with amazing chili. Cheeseburger was hand-pattied. The order taker was super fast and friendly. Crab cake dinner was 1 crab cake but actually pretty good for a fast food type place. It was also served with a handful of very good hush puppies, and regular fare fries.

I was surprised at the homemade taste that you get in Spankys food. I had a side of green beans that were well seasoned and tasted right out of the garden. I had the flounder sandwich as a maik dish and it was a huge piece of fish that stuck out both sides of the sandwich. It also tasted fresh... More
