    Unpretentious place. Prefer the beef brisket to the pulled pork. Decent BBQ chicken too. Worth a try if nearby, however not a destination.

    Guys, believe me!!! That was the best BBQ experience in the whole Miami area!!!! Have a good pint of Raspberry lager and have a pulled pork plate! I would definitely comeback for ribs!!!

    This is downtown Miami, so parking could be an issue. This is a nice spot to gather with friends downtown before heading to the arena or some other event.

    Pulled Pork is delish, especially with Sparky's traditional bbq sauce.

    The Tyler pressed sandwich is correct! Pulled pork AND sliced brisket w/cheddar and pressed? Only a side of crispy spiced fries could make it better! Great service and beer selection too. Hidden gem!

    Great pulled pork, but the house beans are the real star of the show. Great value food but pricey for drinks.

  • Jacobo G.

    It was OK, not great. I really wanted to like it but ended up disappointed. Tried the wings...not special. Tried the brisket... Unimpressive. Pulled pork was the only highlight.

    The brisket sandwich is already legendary: a freshly grilled bun piled with juicy slices of prime beef imbued with smoky glory and spice-rubbed flavor. Read more

    Place was okay, nothing special

    Not worth it. Ribs didn't have sauce and stuck to the bone. Fries, while well seasoned are clearly frozen. Pulled pork plate came without sauce. Pros- service was good, food was edible

    Get the pulled pork sandwich! Owner (Kevin) is very nice! Did not have Perrier water, so he went around the corner and bought me one! Wow! I'll be back, and amazing BBQ!

    Awesome BBq sauces! The baby back ribs are off the chain

    The beef brisket is legit. I also love the fried pickles, greens and baked beans. Also, if you like spicy ask for their magma and lava sauces.

    Todd Davis · April 25, 2013
  • Glenn E.

    The best BBQ in Downtown/Brickell, possibly in all Miami. The homemade sauces are standouts, and sides are outrageously delicious as well.

    Glenn Ebert · February 23, 2013

    Great ribs here! · January 26, 2013
  • Patrick R.

    BBQ authentic enough to satisfy traditionalists and innovative enough to keep you coming back to find new favorites on their menu; Sparky's is cheffy without being pretentious and a Miami treasure.

    I am obsessed w the boneless smoked chicken thigh platter and Tuesday nights, Sparky deep fries them!

  • Gables Maven

    Great burger. Order it with cheese only as to not interrupt the flavor. Add a little of any of their homemade sauces for punch. The secret's in the bun.
