Delicious, Made From Scratch

This place was so good, we are there twice while on vacation. The Flatbread Turkey with Bacon Jelly was amazing. The fries were fresh cut and were some of the best I've ever had.

I visited Sparky's with friends. The food was average. We ordered the chips and cheese dip for an appetizer. Two of us had cheeseburgers and fries and another ordered a gyro.

Typical roadhouse food, but good for everyday lunch or dinner. Wait staff was nice and food was prepared quickly. Could be cleaned up and redecorated, but we're not too picky. We will be back!

The atmosphere is friendly. Great place where the kids can have fun and the parents can still have a beer. Friendly people, great theme, and the game room is the bow strapped on top. Good American, classic flavor.

Consistently good food and great environment. Sparky's is a local staple and a real treat for tourists. I love the falafel pita sandwich! great place to bring friends, too. Be ready to wait a little while because of its popularity.

Sparky's has a great selection of food and drink, cute and comfy patio, generous portions, and friendly service. We really enjoyed our lunch there and the Dave's House Brownie was awesome.

Fantastic restaurant! The food was good but the service was stupendous! The whole staff went above and beyond to make us feel as comfortable as possible. They even let us stay way after closing time so we could finish our cocktails! We WILL be back!
