Spykes is one of those "hole in the wall" barbeque places it's pleasant to run across. Nothing fancy, no big pit at the entrance and limited parking, but inside Spyke serves up some very tasty 'que. The brisket was very moist and tender as were the pork ribs. The sausage however left a greasy after taste. The chicken was also very moist and tender, but not much smoke. Sides are serve yourself, I only tried the slaw and it was ok. I liked the sauce, sweet yet tangy. Prices are very fair.

So many Texas towns have their favorite BBQ places. Kingsland didn't for a long time, but Spyke's filled that niche. Their food is delicious, reasonably priced. I just hate that the county is putting up a traffic light that makes maneuvering into the small parking lot more difficult. Spyke's is yummy!

Stopped in for a late lunch at the recommendation of the folks at Perissosa Winery and Vineyard. My wife had the chopped brisket and I had the sliced brisket and sausage. The staff was friendly, the prices were good, and the food was great!

A must try, and you will return often! Staff is friendly helpful and has a great attitude of making the customer happy! No reason to go to Llano for BBQ. Stuffed potato is pretty good, Williams Special is chopped brisket, beans, cheese and corn chips makes for a great taste.

We found this restaurant while exploring the Texas Hill Country. The food was great and the people were the nicest and most helpful that we met. This is a "must do" for anyone cruising the Hill Country.
