Have been to Sparky's around 2-3 years ago and food and atmosphere was awesome. It was a very different story with our last visit. I order chicken and the chicken was terrible. It had no taste and was like rubber. I did complain to the waitress and I don't like to complain. She did send the manager out and he... More

The menu at Sparkys is very different. It was high quality and very tasty. Their cheese dip was different than any I'd ever had but very good. I had their key largo enchiladas. They are made with tilapia. They were unlike anything I'd ever had but again very good. They also have hamburgers which I hear are very good.

I had a cheese burger with Wisconsin 5 year aged cheese with fries and a Sam Adams Oktoberfest. Burger was cooked well done like I asked and like I said it was pretty good.... More

Just enjoyed a great meal at Sparky's! The decor is nostalgic, quirky and fun! The burgers and malts are delicious! We also ordered their tasty chili cheese fries and onion rings. Everything was wonderful, and the service was exceptional! Will definitely plan to eat here, again! :)

We were only going for a light lunch. Forget it, there is no such thing at this place. I ordered the nachos appetizer, which turned out to be a mountain of nachos with amazing meat and cheese sauce. What set it off was the roasted peppers in the sauce. Oh this is supposed to be a burger joint, my wife... More

I went to Sparky's twice during the Corvette weekend and both times, the food was quite good. The decor is funky & eclectic (a bowling alley on the ceiling, the words LET'S EAT YAMS on the heating duct). It feels like a down-home cafe. The servers are all very helpfull and very nice. We got right in, party of 6,... More

Did I mention Tasty? The Chicken Tacos lunch special was oh so delicious! Hubby got a big burger with all the trimmings, and friend got a veggie burger. We got an appetizer of delicious fresh guacamole and chips. Our friend is a local, and this is one of his favorite spots!! The Goose Island Ale was on tap for $3.00... More

We visited the restaurant In June, 2014 on the recommendation of the desk clerk at the hotel we were staying at during our visit to Eureka Springs. We were greeted upon arrival by a smiling server and we liked that. We were able to sit outside on the enclosed patio and watch the cars zoom by with my nephew (13)... More
