Best BBQ for the money

We picked up a few pounds each of brisket and ribs, some sausage, beans and cole slaw for eating at Inks Lake this past weekend. I've sampled their stuff once before and thought it was worth giving it a full shot. It was a unanimous hit! Their prices are reasonable, a notch below the Lockhart... read more

This is my second review....but I just can not stress how good their brisket is. I travel all over the state and I have had occasion to do BBQ from most every part of Texas, and far and away Spyke's is hands down the best I have ever had!!! Most all of their meats are great, but that Brisket is... More

This little restaurant is small, Informal. The staff was friendly. I had the small BBQ ribs. They were very tender and tasty. The side was potato salad, Cole slaw or beans. Reasonable priced.

We picked up some BBQ to go. The sausage and brisket are very good. Tasty and nicely cooked. Beans and potato salad just so so. But for the money you get large portions and the service is quick.

I iive close by and eat here often. Genuine good BBQ. I have tried just about every combination you can buy and it is all good. This place will not disappoint you if you try it. The Williams special is my all time favorite. Frito pie with chopped beef and beans.

Their ribs are grrrreat! We order by the pound but I always tell them it has to be an even number because we will fight over the last one if not. The rest of their BBQ is equally as good. The brisket is succulent and the smoked chicken is always moist. We avoid the sides - Obviously bought in bulk... More

Visited here for a late lunch on Halloween. The special was a sausage plate which a couple in the group ordered. They said that it was pretty good. I had the sliced brisket sandwich plate. It was tasty brisket and the sides were good, also, pinto beans and potato salad in my case. I would definitely eat here again.

Everything good. Chicken is very good. Went there specifically for chicken yesterday and they were very busy and had sold out. I had turkey instead and was not disappointed. Not always so busy, hasn't been spoiled by success.

The brisket and ribs are great at SPYKES! We eat there every time we are in Kingsland. No need to drive to Llano or Marble Falls - you won't find better BBQ! The sides taste homemade and the Peach Cobbler is also GREAT! If you don't have 'room' for cobble then get it go. Put it in the microwave and... More
