Sparkle's is known for popular hamburgers, famous shakes and a long, long wait. Regulars know to call ahead before even setting out for the Third Ward burger shack, and you'd do well to listen to their advice. Not your standard burger stand burger, Sparkle's beef patties are much, much larger than you might expect, and maybe that's what takes them so long to cook. Also available are french fries, onion rings, chicken-n-waffles, and Kool-Aid (for a dollar). To-go orders only -- there's no indoor seating available, and outdoor seating is limited.
