Sparkey's is just plain food, but it is damn good! Had spaghetti for lunch and was au dente with a great sausage and meat sauce. Wife had a burger, properly cooked to a medium rare and the salad was farm fresh.

We enjoyed their Wednesday all-you-can-eat fish, french fries, coleslaw and corn fritters. The place was packed when we arrived at 1 pm and we had to wait quite a while before our first order arrived. However, it was worth the wait. The french fries were...More
