In town and had to check this local place out. You go to the counter and place your order then go sit and wait. The workers taking the orders seemed like they wanted to be elsewhere but was friendly enough. I ordered the Famous Fried Cheese, which was as good as advertised. I also ordered a basic bacon and cheese burger. Nothing special. No flavor just a basic burger. No real complaints. Liked the atmosphere and is in the perfect location across from TTU football stadium.

Good burgers and GREAT cheese sticks. The cheese sticks are VERY LARGE and 2 people can share a 3 piece order. We didn't know better and ordered a 6 piece and had to take home 4 pieces.

I love the fried zucchini, the view of the stadium, and the generally fun atmosphere. This isn't a place where you expect 5 star cuisine, but if you want burgers and fried foods, this is the place!

I've eaten at Spanky's several times this year on business trips to Lubbock - it was recommended by one of the local employees. It is located across from Texas Tech and seems to be a popular spot with the college crowd.

My most recent visit was during lunch on a Friday. There was quite a mix of diners - doctors, families, blue-collar workers, white collar workers and of course college students. There were even several groups of high schoolers who appeared to be in town for some competition.

It was busy, although everyone seemed to be able to find a table without having to share. Consequently, the wait to get our food was a little long. Staff members were making the rounds and checking on all of the tables. Our group all ordered burgers, which arrived hot and were pretty good. The fries were OK - a bit greasy. The only complaint was that the Hotter N Hell burger wasn't really that (spicy) hot. Overall, everyone thought the food was good.

I will likely go back on my next trip and try the cheese sticks.

Small little spot famous for massive cheese sticks. We had em were good with marinara sauce. Fried pickles were insanely salty and greasy. Chicken sandwich was good and a decent size.
Upstairs area is cool but if your just coming in for lunch downstairs is a lot more efficient.
