I've been eating at Spikes several times a month for many years because they serve up good BBQ at a good price. It is like Cheers they know your name and you almost always run into someone you know while you are there.

Spyke's BBQ has been around awhile and there's a reason for that. The BBQ is delicious. I especially love their chicken (they sell out some days) and the chopped beef sandwiches. What really makes Spyke's stand out is their BBQ sauce. On the table in a squeezable bottle - as much as you want. And you'll want a lot. Simple... More

Spyke's bar-b-que tastes great! My family travels to Texas yearly and we have enjoyed bar-b-que from several different locations but we have found Spyke's to be the best value especially for our large group. I definitely recommend Spyke's for a great meal without the higher prices of some of the other places.

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, Elgin and Austin spots everyone... 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.
