I know this is an institution for this area but the food was ok. The place was sterile, outdated and the chairs were very uncomfortable. Too many other choices out there these days to settle for this expectation.

The food was great and I love the new drive thru. The service was great too. Traditional Carolina barbecue would recommend to everyone

Good food with fairly large portions. Everything was okay but nothing that I ate was exceptional. Good service. Clean sterile ambience.

We got takeout from Parker's. We had the pulled pork. It was tender but somewhat Bland. All the side dishes for also Bland. Perhaps it is better if you eat in rather than take their food out.

Not very much taste to the bar b que. The sides tasted like they were microwaved, perhaps left over from yesterday. The refills were slow in coming and overall we left very disappointed in the place.

We were only in Greenville, NC for two days (a funeral), but we ate two days in a row at Parker's and bought 3 pounds pulled pork to go back with us to Connecticut. Very addicting!

This place showed positive reviews so we tried it. We ordered a big carry out order. The restaurant did not get our order correct and then over charged us. The food was okay. Not the North Carolina BBQ I was hoping for. Maybe it was an off day? I'm not sure, but this was not a particularly peachy experience.

Well...............I ordered the seafood plate of shrimp and flounder and it was good. We were thinking that this restaurant would consist of soul food. Wrong! The mac and cheese was very basic, similar to the CHEAP boxes of Kraft. The BBQ was VERY SALTY and VINEGARY (I know not a true word)! String beans was straight from the can! The... More

Been going here for years. I live out of town and always make a point to stop and even take food to go. The hush puppies are incredible. Enjoy.

Always good. Famous for BBQ but the fried chicken and chicken livers are wonderful. Family style is great for a hungry crowd.
