Great Place to eat in Orange

Food and service is great! Fantastic Salad bar that comes with most entrees. Pasta and seafood is really good. they have a drive up take out area that makes calling ahead to bring dinner home really nice.

There is two options at Spanky's. The typical bar&grill and the family style restaurant. The spicy grilled shrimp with extra veggies were great. The alligator with asparagus was the best gator since 1962 kudo's Spanky's. Be sure to treat yourself to crab stuffed jalapeños

When we walked thru the door we could smell the tobacco smell really bad the bar area in back of the restaurant is not enclosed to keep it contained! The food is general hamburger, salad, and basket type food! They offer a salad bar but in our visit it looked wilted . So I did not try it. Refills took... More

My favorite is the grilled shrimp salad. Always tasty. Lunch crowd kept wait staff hopping. Had not visited Spanky's of late. Still one Orange's favorites w/the lunch crowd especially. Many of our friends prefer Spanky's bar-b-q. Personally, I prefer their seafood & cajun dishes.

We had some crawfish takeout early in the season, so decided to go in and try the place, hadn't been inside in many years. First impression was a little caution. My chair was sticky when I touched it to be seated, the floor was dark brick-looking tiles that looked dark and dirty. The decor hasn't changed in 20+ years, tv... More

On a marathon drive home from FL we decided to stop to have a real meal before the final push. Spanky's was just off I-10 and had good reviews so it seemed to be a good choice. When we entered we were further encouraged because the entryway wall was covered with "Best of" ribbons: Best Bar, Best Bartender, Best Burgers,... More

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.
