Great Local Restaurant

If you are coming to Eureka Spring, Sparky's is a must. Leave the fancy dress, coat and tie at the B&B, this is a family restaurant for hanging out and great food. Great burgers with a wide choice of cheeses, nachos for miles and so on...everything here is fresh and wonderful. Portions are... read more

My friends from Vegas had a great time today. Jennifer was the best server ever. She made sure we had a great experience and a great time. Before we left we all had to give her a hug around the neck.

Went to Sparky's for lunch and enjoyed two of their spicy signature burgers. Fortunately, we asked for the salsa in cups to the side so that we could control the amount of heat. We love spicy foods and these burgers certainly qualified! Wait staff was friendly and helpful. Would go again if we're ever back in ES.

We were looking for Mexican in Eureka Springs and it proved to be a tough assignment. Sparky's was close to the motel and recommended. We knew going in that Tex-Mex to them means enchiladas. They have four kinds on the menu and my wife picked the chicken and I ordered the beef. They were out of the beef (How does... More

We had the "special" tilapia enchiladas. They were surprisingly good plus we also had a beef enchilada. The food was very good, atmosphere and service was great. We will go back again.

The burger and fries will fill you up! We had two adults and two teens with us. everyone ordered their own. More that we could eat. There are lots of signs and items on the walls around to keep you looking and reading. Enjoyable!

The enchiladas are awesome!! We were only there three days, so we were trying to get in a variety of places to eat. We ate there the first night and the enchiladas were so good we made sure to eat there again on the last night! The chicken enchiladas are quite possibly the best I have ever eaten!!

A little pricey and the service was a little slow. The food was generous in portion size and is average in selection of burgers and fries type of food.

My husband and I ordered the Wally Burger and Diablo Burger. Both burgers were good. French fries were nothing to write home about. They kept the drink glasses full, which you may need with the Diablo Burger.
