I enjoyed the Chicken Teriyaki plate and the rolls with the cinnamon butter. The service there was okay and the servers were nice.

Mike has owned and operated this restaurant for decades. He learned the business from his dad who owned the Capistrano. Mike works tirelessly to make sure this business is run efficiently and the food is superb. When in Orange, TX, you owe it to yourself to eat here at least once.

All the food i had at Spanky's was great. My waitress seemed a bit green. She didnt know what beers were on tap, never refilled my water, and i had to ask for my plate for the salad bar. the steak was cooked correctly, and had wonderful flavor. The sides and appetizer were good as well.

Not a bad place to eat in Orange. Service is good and food quality is reasonable. Not too pricey either but depends on your budget. Gator bites and burger was good. Some fellow diners were a bit noisy which spoiled the atmosphere a little.

Spanky's food is good and their service is better than most. We eat there often and seldom have we gotten anything we didn't enjoy.

We live in this area and have ate here many times, but no longer, because this place is gross inside. The bar in the back allows smoking, and the doors stay open, allowing the smell and smoke to drift into the dining room. Food was just okay.

We've eaten here twice; the first time I had fried shrimp, my husband had BBQ both times. The shrimp was good, a little over-priced. The second time I had crawfish, which was awesome, but very over-priced; I shouldn't have gotten it, but it was early in the season and I was craving crawfish! But...the food there is really very good.

I have been visiting the region and eating in Spanky's for many years, and the food seems to have declined in quality in recent times. My last trip was a big disappointment. The food was severely overcooked and was not tasty at all. The salad bar had a lot of flies and gnats inside it. The service was okay, but... More

We heard Spanky's was a local tradition, so we tried it and liked it. I had the butterfly shrimp basket which, while a good value, wasn't the best shrimp I've had. The catfish basket was great, however, and high marks for the onion rings and the fact that you don't pay extra for them! Plus we had good service from... More

Most everything on the menu was fried. I ordered the ribeye and it was thin and chewy. I didn't feel it was worth the money.
