Great all around!

Great food, great prices, great hospitality, and great variety. You can't go wrong here! The catfish sandwich was huge. Everything was served hot off the grill. Love the ability to get a great meal without having to pay tourist trap prices.

Excellent food, great prices & friendly owner!! My hubby & I stopped in for lunch on our way back home. I wish we would've went there every day for lunch on our vacation, and dinner too but unfortunately they close at 4pm. It was the best restaurant that we visited while we were in OBX. I got chopped steak &... More

I drive by this place all the time and it's always busy. My husband had said a lot of locals eat here. Why haven't we? So, to make a long story short, had lunch here today. Got the Pastrami Reuben with French fries for $6.99. That is unheard of. Very fast service. French fries were screaming hot and sandwich was... More

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.
