I love being able to drop in at Spanky's when I can. The burgers here are just the right size -- not huge like some places, or leaving you still hungry like other places.

Excellent selection of beers, too.

The only complaint is that parking can be a little tricky on this stretch of Franklin Street, but believe me, it's worth the drive!

Ate here with a large group. We had 3 small children. It was accommodating for children and grown ups alike. Food was great! Perfect portion sizes. Our server was great and management was very attentive. Can't wait to go back.

Burgers are ground in house, allowing you to order to the temp. you really like, as apposed to the state required "burned".

Standard pub fare - not a bad thing! Very close to campus. Food is very good (not great; the reuben sandwich I had was ok) but place has a nice atmosphere.

Great selection of food, small and very busy during the week at lunch - but worth the wait! However, the Carolina pulled pork had a very strong vinegar taste (wiater warned us). The cornbread on the other hand is fabulous!
