Glad to see the publicity! The Sparky's green chile cheeseburger is great!

I love it......capitalism at it's best (so far) over-comes petty local bureaucracy.

I'm looking forward to eating in Hatch again soon.

Hatch and 50 miles around needs merchants who will step out and get theirs...like they have.

And without lawyers and speed bumps.
Good luck to Tiko and family!

Sign me ....no regrets, damn the torpedoes!

Create a NEW menu item for the Discovery Channel:

Serve up some CROW for the Hatch political woman who was giving these guys hell over the statues and such.

Yes, that woman Franzoy, who was upset, over Teako Nunn's placing those statues on his property. Some hokey argument that they were ugly, illegal, a couple of other things.

Discovery Channel should interview HER, so she can eat crow on national tv, because it really seems to me that Sparky's has been extremely positive and happy for Hatch and the area, possibly doing more for Hatch, than that particular Franzoy woman has done in years (No offense, but the Nunn's got Hatch some GOOD national exposure. A HAPPY story, you know? I think the last time Hatch was national, other than the Chile Fest, was all the flooding and the FEMA trailers.)

You are so right. She already has egg on her face from that one.

I do plan to make my schedule where I can be there.
I'm going to wear a tight top that shows lots of cleavage and my man-bait hugging jeans.
There's no doubt I'll get camera time as both a local, but one with lots of compliments about Sparky's great food.

Yep, remember seeing this artical last year.
"Franzoy firm on Hatch pig opposition."

I reckon she didn't win her fight on getting Piggy taken off "her front porch," did she?

I wonder if that is what happened to the Piggly Wiggly's food chain? LOL!

Good for Sparky's, and good for Hatch!! It'll be nice to see you guys on TV. I'll have to stop in and have a bite, when I get back to Southern NM.

I'm quite sure it was dog I had at Sparky's. Stationed in Korea and have eaten more than one. The ribs at Sparky's were not pork and not beef (thank goodness). But they did taste very good and had the taste of dog which is very good. My only fear was not it being dog but hoping it was a good kill and not road kill.

U eat there once, your good for about a year! Menu gets redundant and boring. Circus atmosphere to mask your real thoughts of a very run of the mill burger joint!!
