Sparky's Consistent and Delicious

I dined at Sparky's tonight and it was delicious with large portions. Sparky's is a Eureka Springs favorite and is OPEN in February. They have a very eclectic menu and are known for their Burgers and Enchiladas but there is something for everyone. Ive had the burgers and enchiladas and both... read more

If the weather is half-way decent, you will want to have a table on the outdoor, but sheltered and covered patio. If you like many choices of craft draft beer or made to order margaritas, along with the best hamburgers and Mexican food, this is the place for you.

Love Sparky's gourmet burgers. You can even build your OWN!! Went back the next night and had a great Hot Ham and cheese with fries. Their fries are fresh cut and wonderful. Love the Funky, Eureka Atmosphere! WE WILL BE BACK!!

I was skeptical when the hostess took us to the covered patio to seat us. The seats in the booth had literally been duck taped and one of us sat noticeably lower than the other. Our server was very friendly and offered to seat us closer to one of the outdoor heaters, but the seats near the heaters didn't look... More

This is a real cool restaurant done in the 50's décor "BUT" there prices are far from the 50's as you can expect to spend over $30.00 for a couple of hamburgers

I was traveling through town and came upon Sparky's! Very good food, great atmosphere and fantastic service! My wife and I were waited on by a young lady and she was wonderful. Very attentive and polite. We talked about the bad TA review they had from a crazy guy. LOL.. She suggested a lot of items on menu. I went... More

We brought our family here: 6 adults, one older child. We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner here. The men certainly enjoyed the great beer selection. The gals enjoyed the food. Decent price for a dinner. We'll be back again. Cheers

This place has a wide selection of beers on tap & the menu has something for everyone. Best of all is how spacious the covered porch is, a perfect place for a large group. And the parking is free, always a plus in Eureka Springs.

Whenever my husband selects the a dining venue on vacation, I enter with trepidation. This time, however, he made a surprisingly good choice. I was having an off day and really didn't want to experiment, so I ordered a garden burger, which was pretty decent as far as garden burgers go. My other-half opted for Jaunny's spicy chicken enchiladas of... More

Love the atmosphere of this place. Service is good. Burgers and enchiladas are their signature menu items. I didn't have any dessert because I was so stuffed, but they had a great selection. A must to visit if you are in Eureka.
