Green Chile delight

The green chile cheeseburgers are great. The chile is typical Hatch Hot, so if you cannot take the heat, order without chile. I tried their burger with green chile, cheese, and pulled pork this time.....very good. Fries are just ok, and I was disappointed in the corn chile side that I tried... read more

We visited Sparkys for lunch. We had the world famous burgers with fries. The burgers were really good. They had cheese and green chilis. Fairly spicy due to the green chili. They used good ingredients through and it showed. Good bread, meat, and flavorful cheese. The fries were just okay. We will definitely eat here again when we pass through... More

We were camping nearby and made a special trip to Hatch to visit Sparky's and see what all the fuss was about. Now we know... BEST BURGERS. PERIOD. You will order at the counter when you walk in and they'll deliver the food to your table. The burgers were so good. Would love to try some BBQ next time we're... More

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...

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
