So sorry to see Sparky Town close. Vegan or not, food was well prepared and served. It has been one of the more interesting and fun scenes in the city. This was not a boring, predictable, same-old menu and design as so many are on Erie Blvd. I will miss the music and art of a true original... read more

A few things have changed as they now serve beer, including gluten free. Entertainment is almost every Friday and Saturday around 7pm. Food is very good, desserts are tasty, even the gluten free ones! My friend is gluten free eating so she was very happy. Been there several times this summer and definitely returning.

They bill themselves as Healthy Comfort Food and that is just what we found. Definately give this place a try. You'll return. We did!

The day I was there they had a live performer, and playing 30s music... Counter to the " trendy " area.. Menu items missing, including ALL beef burgers . Not good, not bad, not what I expected...

Every time I visit, I try to have a different salad. So far- the Popeye Salad + grilled chicken is the best. Key thing to the greatness of their delightful, green dishes is freshness and goodie ratio. Sparky Town salads are always super-fresh, and contain a generous portion of the non-leafy green items specific to the salad you order. I... More

I like the options--lots of vegetarian and vegan. The whole family can find something--even the carnivors.

Being vegan, I had the "Belly Buster" burrito which was (obviously) plentiful and tasty too. Other diners had shrimp salad and quesadillas that they enjoyed. Service was fine and knowledgeable.

This is a nice bar with occasional good live music. I suppose it's a decent place to visit for a night out with entertainment and beer. The food is extremely mediocre with some uninspired vegan offerings. The pasta was fairly plain, the nachos were nothing more than a bag of chips poured into a bowl with tasteless salsa and tasteless... More

You don't have to be Vegan or Vegetarian to enjoy this restaurant. It has a wide variety of quality foods and beverages and several unique entrees, I personally recommend The Jason!
