There’s a reason a line snakes out the door but don’t let it deter you. Get in line, chat up the folks next to you, read the menu, next thing you know you’ll be inside placing your order at the counter. Try the fresh lemonade...More

With the trend of hamburger places having exploded over the last 10 to 15 years, most places have burgers that are not memorable. Not true here. The Green Chile Cheeseburger is a New Mexico tradition and Sparky's has done it very well. Even if their...More

This is perhaps my 6th visit to Sparky's, so I obviously like it. Usually enjoy great food, but on our visit yesterday, my ribs were cold. I took them back to the kitchen and cook verified they were indeed cold. They were very nice to...More
