Hatch NM - The Proclaimed “Chile Capital of the World” gets a Funky BBQ Joint
There is a new place in town that serves up green chile cheeseburgers, slabs of ribs and fresh brew. Are we still in Hatch? In the dusty corners of Southern New Mexico few dives wander far from the famous local staples of chile rellenos, enchiladas and other cheese covered comforts. Looking more like an Austin style burger stand, Sparky’s offers patrons the stand-in BBQ favorites, honest prices and eclectic surroundings (green chile optional). It seems the locals have caught on quick and are in no rush to share their BBQ. If you’re planning a visit to Sparky’s while passing through, come early as the tables fill quickly. Who knows, you may have to share a table with a farmer sipping his double-shot.
