When Spanky’s opened in 1982, current owner Lisa West, was still attending Monterey High School here in Lubbock. The restaurant was where Lisa would meet her best friend, Barbara Bridges Deason, to eat and hangout. Little did she know that one day she would own her favorite place and work with her dear friend, Barbara. In 1987, the original owners put Spanky’s up for sale, and at the age of 21, Lisa became the proud owner of the restaurant. It’s grown significantly from its beginning of seating 20 people to now having the capability of hosting 222 guests. Through it all, one thing has remained the same, the character, the charm and the best fried cheese a gal (or guy) could hope for!
