Spanky's Grille, Kitty Hawk, NC

As I mentioned in a previous email, last week I was playing catch up after vacationing in the Outer Banks (or OBX as you'll see on the stickers on folks cars) of North Carolina. If you've never had the chance to visit the area, I recommend it.  It is a beautiful area and we enjoy vacationing there every year.

When we go on vacation we usually eat out a few times and then cook a number of meals at the beach house we rent.  Last year when we were on vacation, we struck up a conversation with a nice lady who was checking us out at Wal Mart.  She recommended a great local restaurant and we tried it out.  We liked it so much we went back again this year. I think this place will become one of our "must stop" places when we go on vacation.  I didn't get a chance to post about it last year, so I wanted to make sure and share it this year.
As you can see by the fun logo, the restaurant is called Spanky's Grille & Pizza.  They are located at mile post 3.5.  For those of you who've never visited the area, this is how the local folks identify where restaurants and shops are located.  I have to say it makes it really handy when you are trying to figure out the area.

Spanky's is a great place to take a family and get a delicious meal while eating on the cheap. They run various specials daily.  Every time I've gone I've gotten their $2 cheeseburger because I can't pass up a good hamburger.  They make delicious cheeseburgers and fries.  The menu is varied and even has things like funnel cake!  There is something for everyone on their menu.  The staff is super friendly and it was the kind of place we felt we could take our kids and be relaxed if they were a bit noisy. 

The restaurant isn't huge, but we've never had a problem getting a table and the service is fast.  If you go and there is a crowd, I'd recommend getting take out from them.  You don't want to miss trying them out. 

But if you do dine in and someone orders the "Mad Viking Burger" they ring a bell when they bring it to the table.  Along with the kitschy decor, you'll enjoy the fun atmosphere at Spanky's Grille.  Go friend them on Facebook.  You can find a link by visiting their website Spanky's Grille

As a disclaimer, no one at Spanky's asked me to write this post or gave me anything free. I found this to be a great place and wanted to share it with my readers.  Like I've said before, I describe my blog as a "chat with your girlfriend" kind of blog, so if you were here in my kitchen having a cup of tea with me then we would be taking about this restaurant. LOL 

So this is one of the places I've visited recently.  I hope to share some more about my vacation adventures in upcoming posts.  Have you been on vacation and found a new great place? I'd love to hear about it in the comments.

Hope you are having a great day in your neck of the woods!

I've seen Spanky's many times but haven't tried it. I'll keep it in mind the next time we go.
