Must try

I had the change for just a try at Sparkys but that was enough for loving it. I had a World Famous and a choc shake. Nice service, nice atmosphere and good food. Recommended

Been by here a few time and always noticed the line out the door and didn't want to wait, however this time we stopped and waited 45min to get in the door and I have to tell you, IT WAS TOTALLY WORTH THE WAIT. This was not some small patty cooked in a special way, this was a hearty patty... More

Started off the year by going out to try the famous burger. I'm pretty sure i had one back in my high school days when we passed thru on a baseball team trip. Had the best burger with fries in a while. If you get there just after noon you might even get a nice live band playing while you... More

This was one of the best Hamburgers I have eaten! Not only was the sauce exelent but they cook the hamburger to the temp you want (well, medium, rare). It was fabulous and the cole slaw was fabulas with the pinapple chunks in it. Also I never eat fries but I did these! I want to go back! It was... More

'nough said. All their food is awesome sauce! The only draw back now is that the last time I was there, the line was out the door, and we probably spent at least 15 min in line.

We arrived about 2 pm on a Friday, no line, had our food in 15 minutes. We had a Famous Green Chile Cheeseburger and The Oinker, Awesome! There is a shaded picnic area in front where dogs are welcome. The owners put out a water bowl daily for their diners' best friends. If you're in the Las Cruces area or... More

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
