All the bells and whistles of classic roadside kitsch that spill across the street and down the road. Something to watch while waiting in line to just get in the door. Plenty of room once inside. Lots more chotchkes to ogle everywhere. Band playing on a Sunday afternoon and couples out on the dance floor. The burger: very large, quality... More

I really cannot say enough good things about Sparky's! It is fun, family oriented, certain to put a smile on your face with the eclectic decor and the food is wonderfully fresh and straight up home cooking. I've tried several things on the menu but my favorite is and always will be their green chile cheeseburger. Yes, a lot of... More

Despite having been to Hatch several times, I had never eaten @Sparkys. Friends joined us & recommended it. It was much better than I expected. I had the pinker with pineapple coleslaw. I don't care for coleslaw really but this was my favorite ever. My husband said his burger was the best he's ever had & I'm pretty sure that... More

If you're driving I-10 through West Texas (El Paso, Las Cruces NM), take a 30-mile jog north on I-25 up to Hatch NM and stop in at Sparky's! Nothing fancy, but just the best green chile cheeseburger you'll ever have! The secret are those fabulous Hatch green chiles!

Not far off I-25, this is a great stop for lunch or dinner if you are looking for a burger joint or BBQ. It is a roadside attraction with lots of quirky signs and statues out front, as well as inside. Huge dining area which is needed given the masses that come here. Famous for green chile cheeseburgers. I also... More

We visited Sparky's on a Sunday afternoon. At first we were a little worried about the long line outside the building so we asked the folks around us if it was worth the wait. Yes, they said. And the line moves fast. They were right! The restaurant has a local magician/comedian who visits with people in line and passes out... More

Fun place to stop, nosh, and enjoy! Great green chili burgers - not to hot but not to mild. Bigger inside then it looks from the outside, the line forms because the order station is right inside the door! Don't let it make you think there's no room! Great service. Definitely worth the trip!

This burger place is a must. We arrived early at 10:30. The line was out the door! But it goes out the door because as you walk in you place your order. I ordered the Almost famous which is a small burger. The famous burger is bigger. Condiments and standard drinks are self serve. We ordered the delicious crispy wedge... More
