I go into Spanky's every few years hoping that it will get better, but it never does. The food is average for a college hamburger joint.

Have to visit Spanky's when in Lubbock. Juicy burgers with every type of topping! The buffalo chicken is my second favorite to the mushroom swiss. Classic college hang out. It's a must!

Their cheese sticks are huge and delicious! Their burgers are good and average. However, my mom ordered after i did and it took them an extra 20min to get her food out! I was able to finish my food before they brought her's out!

Everything we've tried here has been great, but if you want more than one adult beverage I suggest you leave your tab open otherwise you'll have to wait in line while other people place their food orders. They need another order taker to speed up the process. Word to the chef...add a little salt to the cheese sticks batter...it would... More

Being here in town I've taken advantage of just knowing the places to go versus searching them out. Spanky's again and again always proves that they are one worth the stop. We decided to run by here during work hours. When we got called out for an EMS run, they sat our order back and made it fresh again when... More
