The food here is always great! They have a good selection of beer. I recommend whatever their special is for the day especially the spicy chicken enchiladas. The staff is friendly and the prices are good especially for the quality of food you get.

Love me some Sparky's. My favorite burger is the Wally burger which is a mushroom/swiss type burger. They have the best onion rings. They have a wide variety of beers both on tap and bottled. They have daily specials that offer great value. We love going to Sparky's.

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. There were four specials written on three boards around the room and your greeter tells you about them when your seated.... More

Hi all, this is going to be one long review, but worth the read…(pics posted as well).. Stopped into Sparky’s last night (1/29/2017) when a friend who has been here forever in Eureka Springs told me that they had some really hot salsa’s and something called a ‘stupid hott’ Burger that you have to sign a ‘waiver’ to eat!

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
