Sparky's Piedmont Ave vs Barney's

bgbc | Feb 10, 201109:00 PM

The new diner on Piedmont Ave, Sparky's -- how does it compare to Barney's?

I should point out that I don't actually like the food at Barney's much at all because the burgers are always underseasoned and often overcooked, the bread is blah, and there's just SO MUCH food in a serving. But my kids love it and the staff is super patient and friendly. Barney's rather dry burgers are no doubt healthier than a juicy diner burger. And I do like those sweet potato fries. So we go there. But I'm definitely interested in finding alternatives nearby. Is Sparky's likely to fit the bill?
