Family owned and operated since 1976, Spankys serves up the worlds best chicken finger! The story goes like this, in 1976, a few friends wanted to start a restaurant on River Street in Savannah. Then, the booming River Street we know today was only a dirt road, with only a few spots for dining on the waterfront. Enter two innovative friends who cut up a few pieces of tender, white meat chicken, battered and fried them to perfection, and said to each other 'hey, son, lets call them chicken fingers!' And so Spanky's was born, and its still run by the same man and his family and loyal wonderful staff today! Come on down and dine on a piece of Savannah history with us--we're waitin' on ya!

We sat by the window people watching. Portion sizes are great. The best thing are the Spuds, thin sliced potatoes, battered lightly and fried! Mmmmm good!

This was a good place to eat lunch. We ordered a burger and fries and of course sweet tea. The burger was cooked to order. It was perfect. It is really a good place.

As a disclaimer: I have been traveling to Savannah since the early late '80's and I have visit Spanky's just about every time I go there. It is a wonderful casual place... More
