The Green Chili Patty Melt is out of this world. Sparky's is a very unique place. Only in New Mexico. If you find yourself on I-25 between Las Cruces and Albuquerque, it is well worth the stop.

The place is small, the line is sometimes long, the parking is limited, BUT IT'S WORTH IT! Best green chili cheeseburger anywhere. I've eaten burgers lots of places that claim to be the best, but this is definitely the place! The fries are tastefully out of the ordinary and there are several other things on the menu that sound wonderful,... More

If you ever have the chance to stop in Hatch, NM, eat at Sparky's! We had the World Famous Green Chile Cheeseburger and it was fantastic. The char was welcome addition, cooked perfectly at medium rare, and the green chiles added some zest. But, unless you want to say you did it, don't add the Green Chile Milkshake to your... More

We came for the Green Chili Cheeseburger and were not disappointed! Excellent Cheeseburger! I also had the Sweet Cream Corn cooked with green chili and onions! We road the old roads from Las Cruces.

Great burgers - try the 'green chili cheeseburger!' (this is a ranked top burger place in US; and Hatch is world's 'chili capital') - the BBQ is also great - my fav' is the pulled pork; such a fun place; take a sundae or root beer float for the road. If the line's out the door - don't worry, that's... More

My husband and I stopped here on a return trip from T or C. You order & pay at the counter, take your number & have a seat. We were there on a Thursday so the wait wasn't too bad. We have been here when the line snakes out the door!! Always worth the wait ~ line or not. You... More

I am in my sixties and had a few hamburgers in my life but this by far...was the best cheeseburger with local Hatch chile peppers I ever had! The long line outside should have been an indication of what was inside... The collection of old world signs and advertisement that surrounded us in ever room brought us back to good... More

Just stopped by this place for lunch. Had the Double burger. It was great! Lots of flavor and just enough spice to make your nose run! This place should be featured on the Travel Channel's "Burger Paradise" show. Definitely worth a try.

We stopped at Sparky's on our way to T and C and let me tell you the food is amazing. The hatch chile burger was delicious and the cheese fries were so good too. Highly recommend this place.
