From the outside you expect a burger and beer joint, once you get in, you find out its much more then burgers and beer. The chef Dave has a few specials that he is ready to share with you.

Great Food and local hangout. Love the atmosphere and service. The spicy enchiladas and all the burgers are my favorite.

Sparky's has 1,000,000 kinds of cold beer, if you drink beer. The place also supports community happenings, so we support Sparky's. If you have a complaint, complain to the management so something can be done about it. Visitors to Eureka deserve to be happy1

I had the chicken strip dinner. They looked and tasted like the ones you get at the grocery store was not impressed at all.

I got a goat cheese cheeseburger, delicious. They had a great menu it was hard to choose. We were both very happy with our meals. Sit on the covered patio-very fun

Our family always eats at Sparky's when we visit Eureka Springs. Their menu selection is great, their food fantastic, and their wait staff is wonderful, helpful and friendly. They make you feel at home and always take the time to visit personally with us.

We were there with a large group 12 or 14. The service was very, very slow and some orders were not correct. The food was OK; a little pricey but it is a resort town. Pretty extensive burger menu; each burger served with a ton of fries! Overall, not bad.

Thank DougM879
