Reviewed July 22, 2013

The only part I didnt like was the parking. Seemed a little congested and hard to manuever out of and wasnt really sure where to park because the front was full.

“Quick supper at closing time”
Reviewed July 19, 2013

Absolutely great service and value. Chose a burger with avocado and was very pleased. Husband did pulled pork tacos and enjoyed them. BBQ chicken was good, very smoky my husband said. Very cramped seating but lots of room outside. Even though we entered a few minutes before closing the staff was extra nice

“Better options”
Reviewed July 17, 2013 via mobile

Sparky's is a local hang out. The wait staff was not attentive because they were busy talking to locals at the bar. I ordered a veggie burger & partner falafel pita. Not fresh! I think it came straight out of Walmart box & microwaved! I will say the burgers & fries at another table looked good. If you are a vegetarian, stay away.
There was some fun nostalgia to look at but interior was a little old & dirty for my taste.

“Great Burger”
Reviewed July 17, 2013

This was a pleasant lunch surprise, was not impressed by the seating hostess but once we were seated it was all good, Music playing in the background with a waitress singing the words to all the songs from the 80's and a great burger made for a nice lunch.

“Good but not great.”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

Stopped there for dinner on July 5 and the line didn't APPEAR long. However, no one was seated for 15-20 minutes. As people came in the hostess seemed pretty disinterested. When people asked about the wait time the answer was usually sort "we don't know...." After a while another hostess told someone that the kitchen was behind and they were holding seating. Eventually we got seated and there seemed to be several open tables. I guess they were reeling from the 4th of July traffic. The food was pretty good. I had an enchilada plate that was good but different. No chips or salsa was served either..... Pretty good atmosphere inside and I would go back but not on a crowded weekend.
