We are regulars to Eureka and this is one of our favorites! nice area to drive around and relaxing--my husband and I always enjoy going to this area to get away and unplug from the world --really kind and amazing people in the entire area.

This is a favorite lunch spot of ours and it never seems to let us down. I usually order one of their salsa burgers or chicken tacos. Both are excellent and will not disappoint. The service is usually fast and friendly and the outdoor seating has a great atmosphere!

This used to be our first stop upon arriving in Eureka Springs. My wife and I always split a reuben, onion rings and a couple of great IPAs. Over the last few years the quality has diminished greatly. 2 years ago ago we took our son and his wife, promising them the best reuben ever, only to be thoroughly diasppointed... More

This is an awesome restaurant with wonderful food. Don't expect it fast though but it is worth the wait. Lots of gluten free and special diet help. We go here all the time when we are in town.

Gin and I have been patronizing Sparky's for over twenty years. Our first visit was a cold, icy, winter afternoon where we were warmed by the woodstove on the outdoor deck. This IS a roadhouse, not fine dining, with an eclectic décor, music and menu. The servings are generous and the wait staff friendly. Known for carrying a tremendous selection... More

We stumbled upon this place by accident looking for something that was actually open. One of us got pork tacos and the other got chicken, both had amazing flavor. The cheese dip is killer too. It is a cute cafe that was clean and the staff was very nice.

Sparky's has been there since 1994--what the heck can you say about a restaurant in that has not only survived 21 years but is also packed? Not much----if it aint broke don't fix it! We were not too crazy about Sparky's when we came in---its small, loud music and everyone talking loud to be heard over the music. I had... More

Stopped in for a quick lunch as we were passing thru. Great service and food. Large menu to choose from; American to Greek. I can see why Sparky's is a local fav.

This has been a family favorite in my family for over 15 years. We will not eat anywhere else when we visit Eureka Springs for the day. Great Food, Great Service, and an amazing back porch that was just the right temperature on a cold January Day.
