Restaurant Review- Spanky's BBQ

Spanky's BBQ
127 West 43rd Street
New York, NY 10036

Here's a quick review about Spanky's. I could and probably should write more, but I just don't have the time tonight.

Spanky's BBQ on Urbanspoon

A couple of days before my Texas trip, I stopped into Spanky's BBQ for dinner. It was about 4 pm on a Tuesday afternoon and the place was empty. Very surprising as Spanky's is part of the Heartland Brewery chain and their excellent brews are available here too. Spanky's is located a block south of Virgil's so it's got some strong competition right in the neighborhood.

Will it survive? I'm not so sure. I ordered the The Full House ($19.50 which is a good deal) - 1/4 chicken, 3 pork ribs, brisket and pulled pork. It included 2 sides - so I had the mashed potatoes and corn.

What was delivered to my plate was a full 1/2 chicken, 4 ribs and a nice size pile of brisket and pulled pork with a tasty corn muffin. The dark meat on the chicken was excellent, some of the best barbecued chicken I've ever had. Unfortunately the breast and wing were dried out. The ribs were tasty, but over done. I enjoyed the brisket, it was nicely cooked, tender and moist. The pulled pork was overly sweet. I couldn't taste the meat. The potatoes and corn sucked. The corn was old and dried out. The potatoes were bland and dry. They could have used some gravy or butter.

I'll be back, I've heard good things from other people about Spanky's. Maybe it was just a bad day. The beer alone makes a return trip worth the effort.

It's funny how restaurants are like people... with good and bad days. Have you been back since? If so,did they improve?
