tremendous beer lists, some of the best burgers around, and surprisingly good barbecue.

I have only been to Spanky's for a late lunch (between 2:00 and 4:00) so I really cannot comment on the service. Most of the time it is great but I sit upstairs just doing some work and I can fully understand where they do not have their full attention on me. The food tends to be above average but not amazing. If you are looking for an alternative to Top of the Hill with a view of Columbia and Franklin this is one of the better options. I have never sat downstairs as it seems a little more busy.

Spanky's is a local favorite -- it's been in Chapel Hill for as long as I can remember. The food isn't anything really special, but the service is friendly and the atmosphere is pleasant.
