Drove by this eatery many times before we actually decided to give it a try. Now we make Sparky's a must stop any time we travel to southern New Mexico. Absolutely the best green chile cheeseburger in the entire Southwest. Pulled pork sandwiches, pork spare ribs and the green chile sweet corn side are other favorites. The expanded dining area...

Read about Sparky's on TA and made sure to stop on a recent trip through Hatch. Have to say, it was one of the best damn burgers I've had. I can still taste the flame broiled burger a week later when I think about it. The sassy strawberry lemonade was good too, just enough heat to make the sweat drink... More

We live in El Paso, so lucky for us, Hatch, NM is not that far away and we have easy access to green chiles! Green Chile burgers are one of our favorite ways to enjoy the chiles, and this place does not disappoint! There are other places in Hatch to get a good green chile burger (it's really hard to...

I will admit, the only reason I have not dined here over the years is because it looked like a touristy/cheesy place...well this was a bit mistake! ...because the food here was delicious!!! The green chili cheese burger! amazing!! and the tacos!!! Oh my!!! Hands down delicious and I certainly will go back.

We read about Sparky's and decided to go. It was a winner. The green chile cheeseburgers were very good. The green chile queso was also very good. We have to try this one again.

Food was awesome too! Great family atmosphere! We had to wait in line but it was worth it. They had a band that played and they were entertaining and so fun! Will defiantly go back!

Came here for lunch. Not impressed.. dirty looking.. I ordered a well done burger when order was verbally given to kitchen staff. They all at once started complaining about a well done burger. That they don't make those and other uttered words. First of all not very professional or good customer service. I'm going to eat the burger I ordered... More

We travel through Hatch quite a bit and always stop at Sparkys. Their whole menu is awesome including their half pound plate to their pulled pork tacos. But the best is their World Class green chili cheeseburger which is off the hook! Maybe the best burger I have ever had!!! Must try...

Stopped in at Sparkys in Hatch and was mazed to see a line out the door. I figured long line great food. The old adage held true they had one of the best burgers ever (not sure how they spice the meat but it makes for one tasty burger) top the burger with Hatch green chile and you have paradise...
