In 1983, after being laid off from work, Larry Kavalauskas found himself in a difficult spot. With the urging of his son RIk, and support and help from his wife Judy, Larry decided to take a chance and purchase what was then the after work hangout of many of his coworkers, Spanky's Bar! What blossomed from this decision was a partnership between father and son that is still standing the test of time.
In the early days of Spanky's it was not uncommon to find Larry preparing your lunch over the grill while Judy served your favorite ice cold brew! This became the signature hands on approach that has built Spanky's over the years!
While improvements and updates have been made to enhance the customer experience, one thing has remained the same, great food and drinks at reasonable prices!
Now in it's 3rd generation of Kavalauskas', and over 30 years in business, Spanky's continues to be a staple in the Kenosha area! A relaxed atmosphere with something to offer for both the young and old. Larry's legacy lives on in the original recipe fish dinners served fresh every Friday, and his secret chili recipe that is the only way to welcome a Wisconsin Winter.
Whether your looking for a great lunch or dinner, meeting friends for happy hour, or looking to catch the big game, Spanky's certainly has something for everyone!
