Do they use peanut oil to cook the fries?

Not anytime we've been there.

Do they serve beer?

No beer served. Soda, milk shakes, water

do they not pickup the phone when they have a long line of people to order.?

Their burgers are definitely not overrated, and the service is good. Park Blvd. burgers are great too though

Are dogs allowed at the outdoor tables?

Yes

Very tasty chicken salad, extremely fast service, we were served our order after 3 minutes. Friendly staff. My dad ordered the hamburger and said it was the best he had on our roadtrip.

I did an online order and it was ready on time. They had to substitute some of the fried veggies but all good and delicious nonetheless. Great mom and pops burgers, shakes, fried stuff, with good ingredients.

Fantastic little spot! Fast food prices for great restaurant preparation/taste. The burger was delicious and everything on it was clearly fresh. The milkshakes and fries are top-notch, not just the bare minimum to fill out the menu. This place was pretty busy for 2pm on a weekday, but we were able to get a seat immediately, and the service was very friendly and quick (less than 10 minutes wait).

I'm here at least once a week because it so close to home. Easy ordering at the walk up window. Very limited seating. Portions are large and flavorful and surprisingly not too greasy.

The burgers and fries were better than average. In and out burgers are half the price though. The joint was jumping even after the noon rush. We were lucky and got an outside table. The inside tables were occupied. There is one of those unwieldy, walk-in freezer thick plastic curtains at the entrance which just added to the rather claustrophobic vibe. My friend's malted had chucks of malt in it. He wasn't pleased. I told him and my wife the burgers were better than Nation's. Friend disagreed but he's often a contrarian. Wife really liked the burgers. Burgers aren't lobster thermodore. They didn't disappoint. Too pricey and claustrophobic for my taste though.

Wow. Wow. Wow. Best onion rings I've ever had. The fried zucchini was also amazing! Thick cut and thick battered. Burgers were tasty, all toppings fresh. Prices are very low compared to the quality of food and portions.

RUDE RUDE & RUDE! If you dont mind spending your money on overpriced average food then this is perfect for you. The Oriental lady that owns the once famous Sparkys is absolutly rude. The food I ordered is not what I had in my bag when I went back the lady was like So. She was going to charge me for another burger. The old owners of Sparkys would never treat customers in this manner.

Burgers were tasty and the fries were generous. Parking was ok. You may have to wait a little because you are competing with phone orders. Will come back again if I am in the area.

One of my favorite hole in the wall burger joints. Delicious burgers, the sides are surprisingly excellent as well and they come with a little cup of ranch. I could be biased as I mainly come here after hiking.

This is a chill little hide out for good burgers and sandwiches. With indoor and outdoor seating, you have options. There is a restroom around the front of the building so if you're eating inside, you'll have to make the journey outside. The tuna melt is on point, cheesey melt in your mouth goodness!! Add bacon & it's even better!! All the windows and greenery add a special bonus!

This is a small, well loved local burger shop at the redwood shopping center. Although tucked in a corner of the parking lot, they arranged plants and shrubs such that it looks from the inside like you are perched inside a rustic cabin out in the country. I enjoy it for this reason as much as anything else. the menu is no frills, All American burger shop offerings with some fish and fried options as well. Great prices. Fast service. Easy parking.

It would be better if there was a sign to say where the lines start. Now it is whichever group starts it first either from the right or left. Makes more sense to start from the right, pick up your order and move left to get condiment, fork, straw etc...

Sparky's is definitely a hidden gem nestled behind trees in a strip mall parking lot. There is an inside seating area and patio area with cute patio lighting. Orders are taken at a walk-up window. I ordered the Salmon Teriyaki and my date ordered the Salmon Steak Salad. The portions were generous and flavorful! We split and devoured the perfectly seasoned French Fries! To our surprise even at 8PM there was quite a crowd people, which speaks volumes for a random Tuesday! Sparky's is a must definitely looking forward to trying other menu options my next visit! P.S. Sparky's is a must eat when I come home (born and raised in Oakland) to visit. I share with my family and for the first time I shared with a date.
