We went for lunch in July. The outside seating is covered and screened in, so you get some fresh air, but it's not killer-hot. Fun decor. The food was so-so. My husband's burger was "just a burger". I had a chicken flat-wich. The chicken was...More

Had the BBQ burger, was amazing! Something for everyone here. The GPS told us we would have to park, and walk 2 mins, but the place is right across from the McDonald's, and has its own parking. You must visit. Food and, staff are great.

Had a burger at Sparky's. It was huge and so delicious. Service is friendly and prompt. Fun atmosphere - a little 50's diner like and very cool!

Who would have thought that I'd have the best chicken enchiladas of my life here? No, they weren't authentic in any way- just good "Ark-Mex". Spacious patio. Very casual, vintage feel.

Very varied selection of food and drinks. Went with a group and service was wonderful. Food is very good but pretty pricey. Bacon cheese burger, fries and tea (with tips added for group) was over $21.00. Ouch.

Food was ok. Prices were high. Service was wonderful. Restaurant was cute with a dive style. Wouldn't choose to come back based solely on the food though. I had the pulled pork sandwich, husband had the beef enchiladas and kiddo the chicken strips.

What a great spot to eat while in Eureka Springs, AR!! A MUST place to eat while we're there. Not fancy, but reminds you of a large diner from the '50's with great outdoor patios in front and back. ALL the food is delicious. My...More

Went around 5pm and was seated in the party room area even though the restaurant was almost empty. We ordered an appetizer and our food at the same time. The appetizer arrived after our meal was almost finished. Was told they just forgot to put...More
