We stopped on our way out of town. The hot turkey and Swiss was good. My husband got the cheeseburger and there was way to much cheese on it. The fries were ok. The queso was amazing! They also have this chocolate dipped ritz crackers with PB. They are so good!

I love this place. It's a diner style experience in the Ozarks, the food is almost always very good, as is the service. You have a choice of seating, inside or out in the large canopied area which is comfortable even in the dead of winter, thanks to two wood stoves they keep fired up. They serve a large assortment...

We always have lunch at least once at Sparky's. It is consistently good for creative Pub Food. I like their somewhat eclectic menu. Their pub burgers are always great and the fries are FRESH which is special in our world of frozen/pre-packaged restaurant supply services. I give them a 5 for the food both in quality and variety. The craft... More

Our family visited the restaurant tonight for the first time. All of us LOVED our burgers. My mushroom Swiss burger was one of the best I have ever had. I would highly recommend Sparky's. We have been coming to Eureka Springs every spring for the past 5 years...we were kinda tired of dining at the same old down town up... More

We happened upon Sparky's after stopping by somewhere else and realizing it was not what we thought. I had Dave's steak (grilled steak topped with mushrooms and brie cheese) and my husband had chicken enchiladas. Both meals were superb, service was outstanding, and we would definitely visit again.

Had a wonderful time at Sparky's! The atmosphere was great! Best queso dip we've had in a while! Portions were so huge, we couldn't finish our meal. Waitress was awesome too!
