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.

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.

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.
