Welcome to Spanky’s Roadhouse! Located in the University of Denver area just off Evans and South Williams Street, Spanky’s is the neighborhood hangout for locals, and DU faculty and students alike. The welcoming restaurant and bar has a retro-urban look and serves up elevated comfort food for lunch, dinner and weekend brunch.

Spanky’s is known for pub favorites like homemade ranch potato chips, chicken wings with nine sauce options, fried pickles and chorizo nachos. House specialties include crispy fish tacos, stacked sandwiches, a selection of entrée salads and a paleo bowl with blackened chicken, zucchini linguine, a variety of vegetables and a savory coconut citrus broth.

Spanky’s has some of the best burgers in town, with unique and downright delicious takes on the American classic, like The Mac ‘n’ Cheese which has two 1/4 lb. beef patties, homemade queso, fried mac ‘n’ cheese, pickles and chipotle ranch, and Darla Got Spanked with two 1/4 lb. beef patties, three slices of American cheese, special sauce, red onion and fried pickle chips. If you’re feeling adventurous, go for the PB&J with chipotle-honey peanut butter and cherry pie filling.

Daily Happy Hour draws a crowd from 3-6pm, with local beer specials, a Coors Banquet ‘Beer & a Shot’ deal, and specials on well drinks, wine and craft mules. Plus bar snacks ranging from pretzel bites & queso, chili cheese fries and Spanky’s famous chicken wings.

The decadent weekend brunch menu includes savory dishes like the hangover helper, which has buttermilk biscuits, scrambled eggs, applewood bacon, jalapeños, sautéed onions, jalapeno-chorizo gravy and cheddar cheese, and the Tennessee hot chicken benedict with a buttermilk biscuit, soft poached eggs, hollandaise and hash browns. Sweeter options include bananas foster pancakes and peaches & cream French toast. Brunch wouldn’t be complete without drinks – enjoy a bottomless mimosa bar with your choice of six different juices.
