Heard about Spicys for years and finally had opportunity to stop in. The place is kind of dumpy. For entertainment a laptop had some TV channel on--blues music or R and B would have been cool. Ordered wings and fries. Wings were just ok. The fries had a funky taste to them

Small diner type cafe with only BBQ. The ribs, fish, corn bread and greens are great. Take out available. A few tables inside and easy parking.

I live in coastal Maine and have access to great fish and many great restaurants, but this little gem was as good as I've had in years! Fried fish was crisp and tender and light, corn fritters and corn bread very good. Greens rival good South Carolina eateries!!! An inexpensive and wonderful old school diner!

It's a fryed Chicken place. With sole food. Not a place to eat in, really take- out. But that have tables and no air conditioning . If you want good take out chicken or wings. This is the place

Authentic mustard-based South Caroline BBQ fare. There's no smoke involved here but the dipped fried chicken is amazing. Ask for it well done and double-dipped. Sides are good (especially the greens). AVOID THE RIBS!!

Yes, the wings are worth the trip. An old place that smells like fried food but recommended. Good mac and cheese as well.

We ordered a bucket of 50 wings and they were really good. The wings are fried with no sauce you add there special sauce or hot sauce. We ordered the corn bread, fries, jalapeno poppers and mac & cheese. All the sides were good but the mac & cheese was my favorite.

I ordered from their on-line menu and was charged about $20.00 too much. Although I showed them a copy of the on-line menu with the price discrepancies that said Spicy's Riverhead with all their selections on it they said "it wasn't their menu, they didn't post it and anybody can put anything online." I asked them if they thought maybe... More

The best chicken wings ever!. All the fried fish and chicken are superb! Collard greens are the best and the mac and cheese to die for! You must try Spicy's if you like any of these things!

limited menu so they do everything good. I had the 1/2 BBQ chicken with Collard greens & macaroni salad. Was very tasty. Steady flow of customers coming in the door indicates they have loyal customers and the food is quality. Good portions and not very expensive. Help is very friendly
