Went with my wife for a burger last night. She got the green chile burger and I got a Spinns cheeseburger on a pretzel bun. The waitress and hostess were friendly and efficient. The menu has enough choices but not too much to be overwhelming. The décor harks back to the 50s-60s with a mural that covers a whole wall depicting Marilyn Monroe, Jimmy Dean, Elvis, Humphrey Bogart, etc, and some additional pics on the back wall in the same vein. The music in the background is 60s. They have a good selection of beers including mini brews. Their burgers are tasty, and always cooked well done. Garnishes are fresh and crisp - my wife takes the bun off and has what I call a burger salad. I love the pretzel bun - a good flavor change from a mundane burger. It's a friendly place with good, medium priced food, and has a neighborhood feel.

The atmosphere isn't all that appealing - it almost seems like they couldn't find a better place for a restaurant, so they just set up shop. Not cozy at all, and really extra bright inside. It is spacious though, with a bar and lots of TV's to watch sports. Apparently there is outdoor seating, but I didn't go take a look. The service was good - the waitress really attentive. Actually, maybe a little too attentive? She came back several times to check on everything. I suppose that's not the worst thing ever. The fries were good and crispy, and the burger was really good. I got what I thought was a small burger and couldn't even finish it, so the portions were really generous. The prices were fair. I'd probably go back.

We had been to Spinn's just after they opened in their new location. We wanted the Philly Cheesesteak sandwich with New Mexico green chili. Unfortunately, they told us they wouldn't be serving it, so we hadn't been back. Then, recently we found out they were carrying the sandwich again, and so we gave it a try.
The Philly was done to perfection. Lots of cheese, meat and quite spicy green chili. I had the fresh cut fries with mine and my partner had the jalapeno beans. She didn't care much for the beans, but I thought they were quite good, and my fries were really quite tasty, a large nice hot pile. We will return, and want to try the briskit sandwich.
A bit noisy with loud music, and a high uninsulated ceiling, but not as deafening as some places. Worth the visit as far as we are concerned.

Was excited to find Spinn's again after they disappeared from their previous location. Unfortunately, they've taken a turn for the worse. Smaller and greasier than before. Sadly, we won't be back. It appears that JackieM (3 outstanding reviews of Spinn's) is giving props to her own establishment.

Corner bar type atmosphere, family friendly. Lots of beers on tap and a wide variety of bottled beers. Good quality wines and "wine-garitas". Outdoor patio that allows dogs. Owner operated. Really nice people. Great place for happy hour--specials--email coupons-- excellent food. The green chile cheeseburger and waffle fries are great.
