YIKES!~ WHAT A HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE! Go someplace else, anywhere else, anywhere but the Broken spoke, please read my truthful review of this broken down ol' juke joint!
I can't say enough bad things about the Broken Spoke, it's totally broke and the only joke is on those who patronize the place.
#1. Food was terrible, unappealing, dried out, rank and just plain bad! 1 cheeseburger & coke, 1 BBQ plate (yuch!) and 1 dried out mini-chicken breast, 1 beer and 2 slices free white bread total bill: $30.00 without tip + $1.00 fee for credit card use! #2. Worst band anywhere, ever! Some gal sounded like a tromped on cat? Loud and sad, they were so bad they had to get some big old dumb bubba go table to table intimidating customers to put some cash in the tip box! On the plus side the waitress was nice, friendly too.
When we drove up we thought it was a joke right? There's and old rusty bus out front, a fake oil well and nothing but dirt for parking on. Okay this might be cool was our initial reaction, opened the doors and all 10 people in there turned and looked at us, the place was near deserted! That should have been our cue to turn around and boogie on out of there. Well, we're seeking authentic C&W so this must be the place. OOPS!!! Big Mistake!
I'm a country writer, musician & composer, been in some run down C&W juke joints like the Palomino out in California BUT they had great music and great food unlike the Broken Spoke.
The Broken Spoke is a total dump - PERIOD! Looks stereotypical of what a B movie with Billy Bob Thornton would be like - I was so embarrassed as I brought our out-of-town guest there, golly, I just wanted to crawl under the table and die. Thankfully my wife and God Daughter laffed it all off... as for me? I feel like I was made a fool of, humiliated and slapped in the face upside down and back!
Whoever wrote those fine reviews must be family or on payroll, ADVISORY: stay far away from the Broken Spoke -
Pros: Looks like authentic honky-tonkin juke joint
Cons: bad food, high prices, bad music
