Spankies is located close to TTU and has been around for a while. Good tradition food.
Their bread is worth the trip. It is like pizza bread.

Spankies is a local restaurant/bar that is frequented by the local college students but it also has nice ambiance for a nice dinner. The prices are pretty middle of the road and my steak tenderloins were very tasty and tender. The bread is absolutely fabulous and was worth breaking my diet.

We live in Cookeville, and have been coming to Spankies since 1989. Love the food, and the owner JJ is a charming man. The food is creative, and tasty. I love the portions, and I am a fan of college hot spots. I may be older than the kids there, but I love their energy. Steve Jones, the bartender/manager, has been at Spankies for years, and we truly enjoy seeing his face whenever we walk in the door. We love, love, love Spankies. Local, friendly, tasty, comfortable. We highly recommend this to the traveler passing through. A Cookeville institution.

Spankies has a great menu of steak, chicken, and pasta. They have specials throughout the week with very good prices. The cheese bread is unbelievable. It is amazing. There is a full bar and nice beer selection. It is very close to Tennessee Tech University. Many nights the patrons are professors and other professionals that live and work in Cookeville.
