This place has been a go to whenever I travel to Denver. I intentionally plan my trips around the days and time they are open. I wouldn't miss a green chili cheese burger ever. Funky with great food and service

We visited Sparky's on a Sunday afternoon. At first we were a little worried about the long line outside the building so we asked the folks around us if it was worth the wait. Yes, they said. And the line moves fast. They were right!...More

Fun place to stop, nosh, and enjoy! Great green chili burgers - not to hot but not to mild. Bigger inside then it looks from the outside, the line forms because the order station is right inside the door! Don't let it make you think...More

I don't see why not. If they question you about it, just say the kid is out in the car and was too tired to stand in line!
