The restaurant had awesome old Americana every where! Perfectly decorated. I got the the smoked salmon Ceader and my husband got the fried pork tenderloin sandwich with mashed potatoes at the suggestion of our server. It was ok. Lots of breading. My salad was ok. Salmon wasn't fresh. The server was fantastic though!

What a surprising and fun place Sparky’s turned out to be. First thing you notice when you enter is that it’s an eclectic mix of all things automotive – complete with one of the tables in the back of a pick-up. It’s as if you’re in a 1950’s automotive garage. Even the napkins are those orange-y oil rags that you’d... More

Had the smoked sausage sandwich and coleslaw. Pretty tasty. And the service was friendly. Definitely worth stopping in if you are traveling through.

Great decor, relaxed atmosphere and an excellent menu selection for the entire family. Very good wait staff and reasonably-priced meals. Sparky's is always on our "short list" for feeding out-of-town guests.

Every time we come to Butte, this is our 1st stop. Wonderful food and lots of "old stuff" to look at. Great views also.

I can't comment on the rest of the menu, but the barbeque is amazing. The brisket and ribs were some if the best we've had. The coleslaw was home made and delicious and the fries were crispy and, important for us, not over-salted. There are about 20 craft beers and the one I chose (on tap) was superb. The atmosphere...

Service was great! Food is always good. Chicken fried steak with brown gravy was wonderful. The kids love sitting in the back of the old pickup. While you are waiting for the food, you can look around at all the antique decorations. They do have a full bar but still have a great family atmosphere.

I eat here pretty regularly and I have always had a good experience. The menu is pretty varied, with beef, pork, chicken and fish dishes. I often get a pulled pork sandwich with cole slaw that I particularly like.The antique decor is kind of fun and they have a patio area with a nice view.

Had to grab a quick bite after the swim meet here in Butte. Friday night but there was still room to be seated right away. Service was speedy and attentive. The waitress did mention that the kitchen was a little backed up which we appreciated. The wait for food was no longer than 10-15 minutes ( actually quicker than many... More
