The food here always sounds great. And it usually is good. But the service is terrible!!! And there is absolutely not atmosphere/clientele (probably because the service is terrible)

“A bar with vegetarian food”
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.
