Sparky's Burgers BBQ and Espresso

Lately Nate and I have been trying to have date night every Friday. We rotate who's in charge and so far it's been great! This past Friday Nate was in charge. We doubled up with our good friends Jacob and Brianna and all headed down to Hatch, NM, chile capital of the world. The reason for our trip: Sparky's. Nate had recently found out about this new BBQ place so we decided it was worth the drive. Oh boy were we right. The food was fantastic and the atmosphere was fun and clever.

This is the perfect place for a date night, family dinner, or meeting up with friends. They are also a very affordable place, which is so pleasant in today's climate. So fun. The whole place just makes you smile.

And the food, oh the food did not disappoint!

I ordered the brisket plate with pineapple slaw and fries. The meat was tender and the BBQ sauce had a smoky flavor to it. I especially loved the fries. They were seasoned wedge potato fries.

Nate, of course, ordered the Pulled Pork and Ribs plate with pineapple slaw and fries. He talked up the Pulled Pork all the way home.

I love Italian Cream Sodas so I snagged a Pomegranate flavored one. I LOVED the addition of Sprinkles, just a testament to how fun this restaurant is. Nate ordered a Strawberry shake which was equally delicious.

After dinner we caught the last game of the NMSU volleyball match. Unfortunately they lost to Florida St. but we had fun sneaking Brianna in. Great date night, Nate!

Melissa and I have been to Sparky's, it's was a late afternoon and it was hot. Ducking into the restaurant was a life saver. I believe I ordered the pulled pork and Melissa got tacos. It was great! The only place I could compare it too is a place called RUDY's, located just before El Paso and is combined with a gas station. Very good meat too.
