My wife and two boys stopped in on our way to Bosque del Apache refuge. The outside of the building grabs your attention. Arriving to the front entrance was a little confusing, I suggest an enter here sign, I actually saw another couple have the same problem not knowing to enter here or else where. Onto the food, the selection... More

You have to stop here. We didn't have the nerve to try the red chili milk shake! Maybe you can! Worth a look for fun. The burgers are so juicy.

This is my third time eating here and I've had something different every time and it's all good. This time I had the plate special 3/4 lb chuck patty covered in so much green chili and cheese you could not see the patty. I had a side of beans with extra chili's too. I could only eat half it was... More

Have driven through Hatch two or three times but never stopped to eat before. Decided to give Sparky's a try, but didn't expect much. How wrong we were! The Green Chile Cheeseburger was one of the best burgers we have ever eaten anywhere. Also, the corn and green chile side was equally delicious. Highly recommend

If you are in New Mexico then you have to get a green chili cheeseburger and here is one of the best. Great little place, staff fun and owner right there talking to guests. Small town hospitality and great location on main street off interstate.

I ate here a year ago and it was delicious then, too. Wanted to make sure to eat there on way home from El Paso. Oh my goodness, what a burger. The World Famous is wonderful. I got the corn and green chile side dish. Also good. Fries are good. You can't go wrong.

Sparky's in Hatch, NM is known for a great green chile cheeseburger. It's good, but try the barbecue! Ribs, brisket, sausage & all the trimmings. The pulled pork sandwich is my favorite. No, wait...I think I like the ribs the best.. Forget it, just get a sampler platter! Closed from Monday-Wednesday. A line of folks will form out the doors,... More

I had wanted to eat at Sparky's for some time, but it always seemed to be closed when I went through Hatch, so I contented myself with taking photos of the outside roadside memorabilia. I was a little put off by the line going out the door, but it moved pretty quickly. (No flies, by the way, but that's a... More

We were hooked by the tongue in cheek decor on busy street corner and fact that we were in chili capital of NM so thought we had to try. As others have written, ridiculous number of flies around front door. Should have turned around. Green chili burger ok but was basic burger, with some green chili sauce and on discount... More

The Sparky's experience started with a line that moved quite quickly especially after a cuddle with Colonel Saunders! My green chili cheeseburger was delicious, cooked perfectly. The wedge fries were scrumptious! Lots of people, music in the background and great large things on the roof...I especially liked the chicken. The chili dogs were enjoyed but spicy for my daughter's taste.... More
