Locals love Muddy Creek's burgers - also available meat free.

Whether you're looking for a burger, salad, incredible cocktail, or steak dinner, Muddy Creek's got you covered. Their an extensive menu caters to every lifestyle, including vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free. They take pride in using as many local ingredients as possible for a fresh, farm-to-table experience.

Muddy Creek is also a premier music venue with free shows every weekend and regular ticketed events in the Music Hall. They also host Open Mic Night every Thursday night, which graciously gives our local musicians a stage to showcase their talent and grow as performers.

Main St. Pizzeria & Taphouse proudly carries 36 craft beers on tap.

Main St. Pizzeria & Taphouse is Sparta's favorite pizza place, and for good reason! They offer a wide variety of specialty pies, delicious wings, and an impressive bar with 36 craft beers on tap. They also offer gluten-free crust and a fresh salad bar.

Locals will tell you Main St. Pizzeria & Taphouse is one of the best places to hang out in Sparta. They offer regular live music, and during the summer they bring the fun outdoors, where bands play on their awesome military truck stage.

Fajitas Texas.

Our hands-down winner, which got over twice as many votes of any other restaurant on the list, is Mis Arados. Being one of Sparta's longest standing restaurants, you'll be hard pressed to find a local who doesn't recommend Mis Arados.

This family owned restaurant offers an extensive menu that is sure to please any appetite. Their chips and salsa are made fresh every day - but beware - once you try theirs, all others will pale in comparison. They have an impressive lunch menu, with many options under $5. Mis Arados also serves delicious margaritas, cold beer, and yummy desserts. If you only have time to eat at one place during your trip to Sparta (we hope you'll stay much longer than that), locals agree this is the one!
