As a Canadian I can't tell you how happy I was to find a place like Spanky's. I have to be honest, we picked this place because we wanted to eat at a diner, and the name made us laugh. As it turns out it's a reference to the Little Rascals. The setting of this place isn't fancy, but that's... More

I recently visited Spanky's with my daughter and mother. I had a cheeseburger and fries. I loved that the hamburger bun was toasted a bit and the French fries were homemade. There is a kid's menu, which is always nice. My daughter had spaghetti. I will go back for sure. The decor is VERY dated but the food is good.

A good lunch. I had open face steak sandwich. Lots to eat. Served hot. A great lunch location. They were quite busy, but we were served quickly and friendly.

Old building, friendly, quick service. We both had the fresh turkey dinner. It was a plateful for under $10.00. I could hardly to justice to portions that big. The food was very tasty. If ever in this area again, I would not hesitate to eat here again.

Wonderful Setting, Welcoming Feel. Yes, that's the Upper New York atmosphere, but even other diners said "hello"/"good morning". I learned "Val" has taken over day to day operations from her very popular dad. That welcoming feel is maintained and I was pleased to have Stacey as my waitress. She had a pleasant smile, and kept the coffee coming too :-)... More

My husband and I drove to Eisenhower Lock and were lucky enough to see two ships go through, one going up and one going down. When we left the lock, it was around noon and we wanted to get lunch. We stopped at Spanky's because there were several cars there and we didn't see anywhere else to eat other than... More
