Great Green Chile Cheeseburgers!

Best in the state where we take our green chile seriously! They have contests state wide for the best one. I don't know how they don't pick this one as number 1.

The signature dish is what they call the "World Famous" green chile cheeseburger. They start with the best home made beef patty, add green chile (grown right there in Hatch), cheese, and that's it! And, it is best enjoyed just like that. Don't add anything else! They also make a variety of shakes and malts, including one made with green... More

From their excellent NM green chile burgers to their fabulous chile-mango shakes, there is not a hamburger in NM that can equal Sparky's... You just gotta come try 'em out!!!

I stopped in on a weeknight coming back from ABQ. I had the barbecue sampler and was not disappointed. The brisket was some of the best I have ever had, and the pulled pork was legit. the sausage, ribs and coleslaw were pretty good. Service was friendly and fast. One of the girls working even invited us into the other... More

Spending two weeks in Las Cruces building for Habitat and was told a visit to this area is not complete without a meal at Sparky's up the road in Hatch. So six of us did that yesterday. I had the "world famous" green chili cheeseburger and it was an excellent burger. I was only behind 6 people at the order... More

Decided to stop in Hatch on log drive from Colorado to Arizona. So happy we tried Sparky's, it is a really fun atmosphere inside with road stop knick knacks everywhere. I had the charbroiled chicken sandwich w/ green chiles/cheese and my husband had the world famous. We were both impressed! Such a good kick to them both. Wish we were... More

Cozy, comfortable fily style restaurant off the beaten path, but convenient to the interstate. Outstanding food and great value with local favorites including green chili burgers, tender BBQ, and delicious shakes. Not the place for dieters or calorie counters, but a great destination for families and children who want to indulge a bit on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon. Local... More

We tried their world famous hatch green chili burgers. The meat itself was very good meat made exceptional with the addition of the hatch green chiles. Burgers are big so come with a big appetite! Our children ordered the BBQ pork sandwich and beef burritos. Both items were good but nothing exceptional. The BBQ pork was a little on the... More

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
