The food is pretty good and everything else was going great till today when I guess the women that owns the place accuse me of taking pictures of the girls. I can't see the screen on my iPhone very good so I have to hold it close to my face,so I guess she thought I was taking pictures and when... More

Forget the BBQ - I'm sure it's good, but the burgers are the highlight here and the jalepeno buns are easily the best I've ever had and why I would come back.

This is just a small place but the barbeque is fantastic. We have had lots of barbeque in Texas and this is one of the best briskets we have eaten. We went their three times in our month long visit to Marble Falls in our RV. We got take out as the place is pretty small.

This is a perfect example of a place that does a few things exceptionally well. While often a trite statement, everything on the menu is outstanding. The chopped brisket sandwich was juicy and scrumptious, the ribs had fall-off-the-bone goodness and the sides were fresh, cool and flavorful. When traveling through Kingsland, make time for a meal at Spyke's!

We like to stop at Spyke's on our way to the lake. The flavor of all their BBQ is excellent and we have had the brisket, ribs and chicken. Their sides are also very good especially the potato salad and beans. Their sauce is also very good, tangy, not too sweet. Their parking is very limited so don't panic and... More

Went here because of the good reviews and were not disappointed. Well laid out ordering area with self-serve sides and drinks. We had sliced brisket, turkey, and jalapeño sausage and were amazed with the generous servings and taste of all. My brisket was too fatty, so I asked if it could be replaced with leaner. Not a problem...... staff put... More

We went here for lunch. We both ordered ribs regular order. $11.99 with two sides. We got four ribs each. We both got brown beans and potato salad. The ribs were perfectly bbq'd. The sauce was very good. The potato salad and brown beans were very good. We certainly return. The brisket looks great.

I've been eating at Spikes several times a month for many years because they serve up good BBQ at a good price. It is like Cheers they know your name and you almost always run into someone you know while you are there.

Spyke's BBQ has been around awhile and there's a reason for that. The BBQ is delicious. I especially love their chicken (they sell out some days) and the chopped beef sandwiches. What really makes Spyke's stand out is their BBQ sauce. On the table in a squeezable bottle - as much as you want. And you'll want a lot. Simple... More
