After many dining disappointments in Dillon, we found Sparky's Garage. On a busy night, they seated us quickly, and the great service continued throughout the meal.
The decor is "early corner garage", with lots of colorful memorabilia, from gas pumps to oils cans - even the cutlery is wrapped in a (clean!) "shop rag". Lots to choose from on Sparky's menu, & the meals, and desserts, are large.
A bit pricey, but worth the extra pennies to experience the decor and friendly atmosphere.
We recommend Sparky's, and will definitely return.

Too bad-we took out of town family to Sparky's for dinner. Their steaks looked good but we had ribs-they were terrible. Over cooked and tough as shoe leather. Slowcooked shouldn't be tough and tired. Shame on them for serving it. We didn't want to speak up in front of company-shame on us.

We were shopping at Patagonia's outlet in Dillon and asked for a restaurnat recommendation. They suggested Sparky's. Being close to the college, we thought it would be a fairly typical burger place. Were we ever wrong. It kind of reminds me of a typical college town restaurant but aside from that it serves great food for the price. Sometimes I wonder about the negative reviews. Sparky's serves terrific fare, fairly valued, great service, and very nice bar selection. Now for the food: the prime rib French dip is as good as we have had anywhere. The beef was succulent, super tender with a great dipping sauce. Add the onions and you will love it. The pulled pork sandwich was done to perfection. Add a Moose Drool or Sparky's lemonade (with a kick) to the mix and you will have a very nice experience.

Took a chance based on some of the other reviews, but we were pleasently suprised. My tomator soup was one of the best I have ever had. I have never had catfish so I can't compare but it was delicious. My husband said his pulled pork was tasty, but a little dry. We did go late. But the best item was the Huckleberry Ice Cream Cake with chocolate sauce and whipped cream. The service was excellent and food came promptly. Others complained about the college crowd but we didn't even see any college kids and it was a Saturday evening. Most of the other patrons looked like locals.

Sparky's Garage in Dillon, Montana was better than any restaurant that I have experienced in the San Francisco Bay Area, best food, best service and a great atmosphere of fun. We recommend it highly if you are in the area, We would love to go back and do it again.
