5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 May 2014 via mobile

My husband and I came up for a graduation and our grad said you have to try the fried cheese and are we soo glad we did! Beer on tap to go with it and we had the Swiss mushroom burger it was really good too.

“Amazing Cheese Sticks”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 May 2014

Ate at Spanky's for lunch and they do not disappoint! The green chili burger is great and the cheese sticks are just as amazing as they are monstrous! Good college aged hang out, but also ideal for families too. If you haven't been there and are passing thru Lubbock, give them a try as they are right across from Texas Tech.

“Huge burgers, great service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 May 2014

This is apparently a college hangout, right across from Texas Tech. The service was great for our large group (20 people) and the portions are enormous. Great burger joint.

“Best Burger!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 May 2014

Oh my goodness! The burgers are so good here. Tasty and fresh. The fried pickles are to die for also! My daughters had the fries with their burgers, said they were really good as well. I recommend this place for anyone going to Lubbock! It is right across from Texas Tech. I beleive this place has been around for awhile, like 30 yrs??
