The staff was very friendly. The waitress checked on us a lot and was very kind. It did not take long to get the food after we ordered and the food was delicious. It was very clean. The atmosphere was definitely laid back. I recommend this restaurant.

The people were so nice and helpful and the atmosphere was very laid back. I had the guacamole burger and it was fantastic. The guacamole was fresh and handmade and the burger was cooked just liked I asked! I would definitely recommend this place.

We ate here at the recommendation by the front desk of the Eureka Inn. The half pound Hamburger was good and cooked to my special needs. The place reminded me of the 50's and 60's. I liked the decorations but the place could use some touching up, maintenance and deep cleaning... I like searching out local flavors instead of the... More

We have friends that eat at Sparky's regularly. I find this surprising with all the wondering options in town. I found the sandwiches to be good. I hear their burgers are great. The service was less than okay. Atmosphere... never mind. It's always busy, which should say something.

Great place to get a beer and a burger. Good service. Great location. ALWAYS HAS PARKING! Which is tough to find in Eureka. Favorite burger joint in town. Has lots of other great food too. The heated patio is excellent. If you go sit on the back patio.

We stopped here for lunch. It is away from the busy downtown area so it is much easier to find a parking space. The tortilla soup was outstanding. One of the best we have ever had. They have many different selections of draft beer and it was good and cold. We were too full for desert, but we will try... More

My family and I wanted a late lunch while in Eureka Springs and heard that Sparky's would hit the spot. When we arrived we were greeted with a friendly wait staff. I fact, they went out of their way to make us feel welcomed. The menu was very easy to read and right to the point. The hamburgers were very... More

We traveled for eight nights on a trip, and spent some time in Eureka Springs. We ate at Sparky's for lunch one day. This was our least favorite restaurant from our whole trip. The food was just so so. It was not overly warm. I had BBQ pork. The waitress had too many tables and seemed very put out that... More
