As a resident of the Outer Banks, I realize there are lots of restaurants to try. Even I haven't been to them all! Spanky's is one of those places where we go instead of trying new places. I absolutely LOVE their food, as does my husband, and we typically have a hard time agreeing on places! The owners are wonderful folks and always happy to chat about whatever is going on. The decor is fun and gives you something to do while you wait (for a very short time) for your food. They have a large variety of food to choose from, and the prices are SUPER reasonable (especially for such a touristy area).
My parents were in from out of town the day after Thanksgiving, and wanted to eat out. They tend to be rather particular about their food, so hubby and I brought them to Spanky's of course. Both of them were very impressed (and that's a hard thing to do!). My Dad tends to be 'very honest' with his comments, even if they aren't the best, but he had only wonderful things to say about Spankys! :o)
My favorite thing here are the hush puppies, yummm! I'm not a burger person and they have plenty of other options for me to choose from. My husband is a HUGE burger person and almost always has a viking. If I let him eat out as often as he wanted, NC would win the challenge year after year just on his account.
Thank you, Spanky's, for having such a great place for locals and tourists alike. We love the family friendly and fun atmosphere, chatting with you guys, and of course the prices. See you soon!
