We visited Sparky's this evening and had 3 different burgers (deluxe, taco and dowdy). We were all very impressed with the flavor and how juicy they were. The service was amazing (Kathy and Nancy are great!). Everyone greeted us with a smile and said hello to us. Prices are very good and the actual diner is a very neat place.... More

Service was slow and the food was very generic. Having eaten there before I expected better. Also, the server put the wrong item on my ticket and charged more for it.

Awesome example of my village's unique funkiness. Ahi tuna charred rare, craft beers, great wait staff. What's not to love?

Eat here every year when we come to War Eagle. Burgers are so big, we usually have to share. Great Fries! This year I tried the Reuben and it was fantastic.

Sparky's has great hamburgers, sandwichs, salads, and daily specials. There is a small dining room and a large covered patio. Sparky's also serves bear and mixed drinks, but is certainly "family friendly" and kids should be fine.

Their menu will please even the pickiest of eaters. Also, they always have great specials and a very good selection of beers. I am not a beer drinker but love their margaritas. .it is a fun atmosphere and friendly staff.

I eat here once or twice each year when I go to Eureka Springs for the Corvette weekend. The service is always good, the food tasty. When I was there this weekend, I had their pulled pork Cuban sandwich with fries. The pulled pork was delicious...and the fries were hot and crispy. I also, on a second visit, had the... More

We eat hear every time we visit Eureka Springs. They have good food, good service. The burgers are large and they offer several different options. The Mexican food is good but we usually eat burgers.
