“A bar with vegetarian food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2006

We ate here a couple of times while in Chapel Hill. It's not always easy to get non meat dishes but Spanky's menu had some variety and the beer was pretty good (Yeungling) too.
The service was helpful, and the waiter and indeed another customer were kind enough to give us directions as to the quickest route to get to Durham for an evening sports event.

“Nothing Special”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2006

We stopped here to get lunch with our 2 children on April 23rd. The food was edible but nothing special. I had a Thai salad that came with "peanut" dressing which was already drizzled over the top. The dressing was watered down, had no flavor and was very greasy. The noodles in the salad looked like limp brown worms...not appetizing. My husband had a club sandwich which was good but anyone can make a decent club sandwich. The kids had the usual chicken strips. We frequent Chapel Hill but we won't visit Spanky's again.
