I have tried many things here and the best seems to be the hamburger (at the moment). Maybe I'm just not too fond of a Tex-Mex touch to everything. On my last visit I had a very insulting waitress, which is unusual for Eureka, but the cashier tried to make it better by giving me a delicious homemade cupcake!

We stopped here at the suggestion of our innkeeper @ Heartstone Inn on our way to The Great Passion Play. Both of us had burgers...I had the cheeseburger.... my husband had the grilled onion & sauteed mushroom & swiss burger, both w/ fries. We both like our burgers done & these were done to perfection...so juicy! The toppings are offered... More

My daughter and I have to eat gluten free which can make finding a restaurant a challenge. Sparky's has gf food. We had great hamburgers with buns! The place is very cute, the staff is friendly and the menu has lots of choices.

Hamburgers were pretty good. Service was fine. Costly for what you get. If you want a burger its just OK.

We drove by and because the outside looked like a place near our home we didn't think the food would be great. But We Were Wrong!! We decided to try it as it looked like the reviews were good. The food was wonderful. A nice selection, good variety, burgers cooked how we liked them, funky, fun decor, friendly staff, cold... More
