The combo plate with brisket and sausage bites comes with 2 sides. I always get the coleslaw (sweet w pineapple) and beans. Yummy! Live entertainment is a little too loud for my liking but very popular.

Stopped by for a hatch green chile cheesburger because Sparky's is so famous. The food prices are very reasonable; only $7.49 for the burger and fries. Delicious flavor from the meat itself with mild chile to complement, melted american cheese and soft bun. There was a toppings bar with sliced dill pickles, onion, and jalepenos. The restaurant is decorated in... More

The food was very good (the green chile cheeseburger, which I believe is their signature dish, was very good as was the sweet corn with green chile), and the eclectic decor made for a fun dining experience. If you are in the area (don't make a special trip out just for the burgers; they are good but not life changing... More

What a wonderful, fun place. The line was out the door, but that was o. The host was also a magician and kept us all entertained. The decor is full of such wonderful antique displays and characters. They were able to accommodate our group of 11 at no notice without batting eye. Th food was fantastic. The signature Green chili... More

This place is quickly becoming a "must stop" restuarant if you are anywhere close to Hatch New Mexico. The Green Chile Cheeseburgers are excellent and can definitely hit the spot! We ordered "The World Famous" with many sides including some great Cole slaw, fries, and sweet corn. We also noticed a number of people we're having barbeque. Several times a... More

I had heard about this place and finally decided to try it. Wish I had found out about it before. Had the Green Chile Cheese Burger and I can say it was the best ever, and I have had hundreds before!

Sparky's is a place we always heard about from friends with glowing reports of the food. We tried it for an early lunch and found it to be good tasting food(a little on the expensive side), though not quite the wonder it was described as. Still we'd go again, just not make a special trip for it. Really unusual décor.

First, I am not a fan of hot or spicy food, but it was recommended that I eat a chili burger at Sparky's by some folks on Trip Advisor when planning my trip. With that in mind, while driving through Hatch, AZ, we stopped to have a bite. The place is neatly decorated inside and out with lots of antique... More
