We picked Sparky's as our last place to try before we left Eureka Springs. And we are very glad we did. The atmosphere was cool and fun. The food was excellent and large servings. The beer and coctails were cold and very tasty. The service was friendly, quick and efficient. The local customers were friendly. We wish we would have... More

As a local, I have my favorite places to eat around town. Sparky's is one of those. I bring my visitors here. The atmosphere is laid back and the plates are huge. Arrive hungry. The menu includes everything from vegetarian choices to ultimate comfort food, like Cheese Fries. Oh my. The beer menu is extensive, and the house red wine... More

I had a delicious lunch with a friend at Sparky's. Their burgers are delicious. They have this one that has chipotle sauce that is making my mouth water right now. Great place to stop by if you are in Eureka. It's tricky to get in and out of the parking lot (which is in the back), but mostly at busy... More

We were seated in the back covered patio with a fun, quirky decor. My husband and I split a delicious cheeseburger and fresh cut fries. The service and staff were great!

We always eat on the screened in deck, again this is a place with good home cooking, large portions, fair prices and the service is good. It is a fun place to go.

The burger was good, the onion rings were okay, and we appreciate more than just chicken nuggets for the kids but they need more than fries or chips. A side of fruit, celery sticks, anything would be better. We did however love the atmosphere and the staff was super sweet.

We waited about 30 minutes on an empty stomach. From the reviews we expected great food but we were very disappointed. I ordered a steak dish, it was topped with some type of tomato sauce. I could only eat one bite. The sauce overwhelmed the steak and the steak itself was tasteless. My wife had a cheeseburger which was mediocre... More

The people were very friendly & helpful. The atmosphere was clean, laid back & fun! The food was extremely delicious!! When I told our waitress (whom I believe is an owner)... More

We decided to stop for lunch at Sparky's Roadhouse and were NOT disappointed!!!! I had their guacamole burger and my husband had their buffalo chicken sandwich (with their spicy fries which he LOVED). They definitely didn't skimp on portions or on taste. Their menu included a variety of choices from nachos and tacos to salads and burgers. They even had... More
