Spanky's has a good selection of dogs to choose from their menu. I am allergic to preservatives normally found in hot dogs, but Spanky's has available a hot dog made using their own recipe uncured and without preservatives, it is delicious. The hot dog reminds me of New York still hot dogs (before my allergy developed). Their Fritos with chili... More

Great staff and great dogs. Lots of variations to choose from. Great lunch club and good for kids and if you have the dog along they can sit outside with you.

The 1lb. hot dog is the bomb. This hot dog is BIG, and totally works for my appetite. I like the food (of course), great smiling service, quality atmosphere. Great place to eat in Livermore to get a great Diggity Dog.

Stopped here for a late lunch, because I heard they had vegetarian hot dogs. I had the "Californian." The guacamole and garlic relish was kickin'! I added a few jalapeños for fun. I'll be back.

Spanky's Dog House is hands-down my favorite hot dog place. There are so many different varieties of hot dogs to choose from. Hot dogs include Italian sausage, hot links, and Bavarian bratwurst. This is a must if you want a quality hot dog.

A very good dog house. They offer regular hot dogs,Smoked and Bavarian Bratwurst,Italian Sausage, and hot links, they also serve chips, soda and beer. The quality is excellent. The only draw back is limited menu. There is no desserts, I'm not a coffee fan so I didn't notice if they had coffee or tea.

Awesome selection of tasty dogs and fillings. great price and very good service even when busy. I enjoy seating at the small counter that looks out into the sidewalk/street. My boys enjoy this place and I enjoy having a brew with my tasty dog and extras you request.

We went to spanky's again the other day. Once again they did not disappoint us. We shared a chili cheese dog. Very generous portion and really tasty. We sat outside and just had fun. Casual atmosphere and good food. The service was pleasant. and we enjoyed ourselves. They also offer veggie options

Great dogs and sausages on big buns! Oh, you can get a standard dog, but why? A picnic dog is topped with potato salad, an atomically hot chili dog, Reuben dogs, etc. Rather a small place, but definitely a great dog!
