Deee-licious! If you get anywhere with 50 miles of Hatch and Sparky's is open, don't ask questions...just put Sparky's in the gps and smack your lips in anticipation!

My girlfriends and I had spent a luscious weekend soaking at one of the hot springs in T or C. On the way back to El Paso we took a leisurely drive on the back roads and went through Hatch, NM. We decided to find some place to eat and stopped by Sparky's to see if it was open. My... More

I got the Famous Green Chili Burger and the Wedge Fries. I was a bit taken aback by the size of both. While it was enough, it just wasn't Enough! They do a big enough volume in this place, they could afford a slightly bigger burger and more fries. I have eaten green chili before so i wasn't surprised at... More

Stopped in twice recently....green chile cheeseburger the first time and BBQ pork the second time. Like the green chile cheeseburger the best! Had the corn, green chile, onion sidedish both times....very good dish! You line up at door to order food, then go to table where they bring food to you. Both times the line was 10 to 15 folks...

And sure enough, within the years of separation i heard stories of this green chili burger. So sure enough, i came in and was just in AWE!!! with not only the... More

For years, we made the 30 minute trip weekly to Sparky's in Hatch to enjoy the best green chile cheeseburger in New Mexico. Alas, the place received national recognition and has had to change, much for the worse. Once upon a time, there was a cozy little dining room with a half-dozen bistro tables and a large dance-hall style room... More

I had the Famous with the pineapple slaw and hubby had the pulled pork sandwich with the fries, we both had the fresh squeezed lemonade. The burger was awesome! Lots of cheese, the chili was flavorful but not as spicy as I would have thought. The pineapple slaw was a great offset of sweetness to the savory burger. The pulled... More

We really like this place. Tasty, no nonsense, green chile cheeseburger. Even the 8 year old food snob granddaughter said it was the best burger ever.

There was a line outside waiting to get inside when we arrived. It seemed to move slowly, odd in that all we were doing were placing orders and paying. Food was delivered rather quickly by friendly staff. Green chile cheeseburger was wonderful. We couldn't use the restrooms, as someone was cleaning them. Why do that when they have a house... More
