Heading home from T or C in the height of Chili season we drove thru Hatch. The aroma of fresh roasted chilies will stimulate the appetite for sure. In the past the crowd at Sparky's has deterred us, but this time we timed it just right. Service is friendly and prompt. The crowds are well deserved. The food is fresh... More

La la la Love Sparky's! It's the place to go for the best green chile cheeseburger in the land! And you can't miss it...just follow the giant statues.

Good chile cheeseburgers, good sides, exotic chile lemonade and shakes. On occasion they'll have a really good blues band, well they have bands every Sunday, free, but when the can they get a name act. Less than a mile off the interstate, plenty of parking. Good chile shopping in town.

Outstanding green chili cheeseburger. Visiting the Hatch Green Chili Festival. Slaw and fries were great as well and the atmosphere was wonderful. Absolutely worth the wait!

Stopped here on our way to Santa Fe. Quirky ambience. But great food. The chili burger was delicious , with Chili's just hot enough to make your lips tingle. The pulled pork was also wonderful. Timing is everything. .. we got in easy , but the line to order when we were leaving was intimidating. .. we were going to... More

We timed our return to AZ so we could stop here. We were early enough to avoid the REALLY long line that forms when the live band is getting ready to play on Sundays. Still, the employees had sort of a "hurry up" attitude...BUT...the food was phenomenal!! I suggest skipping the chicken (beer battered-not bad), and going straight to the... More

Don't get me wrong. We love the ambiance and food here. Travelers time their lunch so they can eat here and we will too from now on. However----- the tables inside were occupied and we had to eat our chili cheeseburgers outside --- which we shared with the flies. Mind you, the flies know good food too and were as... More

Great green chile cheese burgers and smoked meat plates. Atmosphere is very welcoming. Dislike they are not open all the time, just Thursday through sun :(

I discovered Sparky's on the Raodside America website, and just HAD to visit them on our trip to MN last week! It was AWESOME! The friendly staff, the food, the ambiance were all wonderful, as well as the photo-ops out front! The owner's daughter took our order, and the owner visited us while we enjoyed a green chie hamburger. If... More
