Nothing fancy about Spicy's but the food is to die for.. They make their own sauce and BBQ the ribs and chicken to a delicious level. If your down town in Riverhead just go in and try their ribs and chicken they also have take...More

Not a place to eat in. Take your wings and ribs out. Don't get scared at what the place looks like. The food is very good, very tasty.

Small diner type cafe with only BBQ. The ribs, fish, corn bread and greens are great. Take out available. A few tables inside and easy parking.

The food is consistently great at Spiceys!! And the staff is always friendly, even when it's super hot and they are busy.

Fried chicken is very good. But ,even better is their fish and chips. Even though most of the food is fried it is not saturated in grease. It is usually well cooked.

Authentic mustard-based South Caroline BBQ fare. There's no smoke involved here but the dipped fried chicken is amazing. Ask for it well done and double-dipped. Sides are good (especially the greens). AVOID THE RIBS!!
