There's a reason some other BBQ joints have come and gone in Kingsland Texas, Spyke's is just simply better! Consistent good food year after year is the key to staying in business. Friendly wait staff and a warm friendly atmosphere just add to the experience....More

Trying to find a new place for BBQ and was told to try Spykes. The food was ok but didn't knock my socks off for the price.

There is certainly nothbing fancy about this place but the BBQ is very good and we've eaten at many Texas BBQ joints. Service was quick. We had the brisket, Coleslaw and Pasta Salad. BBQ sauce had a nice flavor and added nicely to the meat.
