Our first night in town, we had supper at Sparky's Roadhouse Cafe. The decor is eye-catching and fascinating. The menu had several very interesting burger combinations....if you like HOT, this is the place to go! They use real meat, hand pattied, cooked to order. Would recommend

Loved the kitschy decor - especially the bowling lane on the ceiling! And a lone picture of Willie Nelson up there as well! Endless things to look at, lol! My burger was great - The Tampico Taco Burger - just a little spice and great flavor! Everyone was friendly - very enjoyable experience.

The last couple of time we have been there, the food is just ok and the service has been lousy. We love the atmosphere. Bring back the old sparky's.

We recently visited Eureka Springs and two locals there recommended Sparky's to us. Our meal was excellent. The prices were fair, and the portions were generous. One couple split a daily special hamburger, and it was plenty for them. I had the best spinach enchiladas I've ever had, and I took half of the meal back to our lodging to... More

These people are so creative -not your ordinary burger/home cooking. I had a cheeseburger with Brie -never tried that before & it was excellent. Awesome fries, too!

Good food, good service. Only complaint it that we did not look at drink prices before we ordered LOOK BEFORE you order a mixed drink it cost the same as our dinner.

This was a popular place to eat. There were both locals and tourists.We did have to wait 15 minutes to be seated. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was fun.

This place is the kind of "hole" my wife and look for when we are on the road and looking for a quick bite. The service was fast and the food was hot. The obvious choice was a burger and it didn't disappoint. The outside seating was our choice as it seemed more interesting but the entire place had a... More

We visited Sparky's this evening and had 3 different burgers (deluxe, taco and dowdy). We were all very impressed with the flavor and how juicy they were. The service was amazing (Kathy and Nancy are great!). Everyone greeted us with a smile and said hello to us. Prices are very good and the actual diner is a very neat place.... More

Service was slow and the food was very generic. Having eaten there before I expected better. Also, the server put the wrong item on my ticket and charged more for it.
