Back to being wonderful

They had a brief slump kast winter, but are back and better than ever. Changes to the menu and interior are a real plus! Go, go hungry, get there before 1130 or be prepared to wait in line to order. It's all good, but I like the half-pound with ribs and brisket!

The food was good as always. I had the pork sandwich and my husband had the green chili cheese burger. The fries are amazing.

From the fantastic fries to the great shakes, you will not be disappointed. This is my absolute favorite place to eat south of Socorro. There is always great service and long lines of customers. Try the sauce.... It's to die for.

First off I'd like to say I appreciate the fact that sparkys actually puts prices on their menue on line. Lots of restaurants don't. But besides that there food is sooo good. Great staff ample food and my wife, after having surgery, didn't have a great appetite. She ordered from the kids menus and it was not only good but... More

I drive often to eat BBQ ribs and Pulled Pork sandwiches, they are the BEST! If you have never been to Hatch, this is the best reason to go. Everything on the menu is great. On the weekend, they have a live band to entertain everyone. The Green Burger is very popular. Everyone is friendly and the location is a... More

What ever you do, get off the freeway and make your way to Sparky's, you'll never regret it and be happy that you did. Kitschy on the outside and fun on the inside and you haven't even gotten to the food. We were a group of six and couldn't decide who had the best meal. The Oinker was terrific, the... More
