Long time Paducah Favorite for Burgers

Has great burgers and the fries are some of the best around. It is an old drive in but burned a few years back and was totally redone with casual atmosphere and celebrity photo on the walls.

We just love going to Parker's after church on Saturday evenings! I remember coming with my grandma as a child, and now we get to bring my daughter and my grandmother! The food is great and atmosphere is fun!

If you like it fried, you'll love it here. Great burgers, chili, shakes, etc., all served in a clean, retro 50's atmosphere, complete with memorabilia, posters, juke box & neon throughout. And they have carhops on skates!

Burgers, fries, and shakes are served in a clean, attractive setting. The menu went beyond typical drive-in fare with plenty of choices for picky eaters. A pinball machine in the back gave a diversion while waiting for our food.

We love going to Parker's when we visit Paducah. We love Stares Barbecue which they serve and the sides are awesome. An order of fries is huge so we always share one. Fun place to go.

Fantastic fried chicken sandwiches. Try the tator tots too. Cherry cokes are wonderful here and the ice cream sundaes are phenomenal. Very popular place, so time your visit right. Drive in, carry out, or eat-in. TVs around to watch basketball too!

Were over charged, took several attempts to get it corrected. Owner was standing there and did not try to help. 30+ minutes later we asked about our food. Order was never turned in. We left with a refund, no food and an oops sorry apology. When I called to inform mgr they have a problem, I was told "you got... More

Parker's was a great surprise in a city that kept on surprising me. I didn't expect much more than the typical nostalgia from old drive-ins like this. Many places that try to keep the past alive don't actually make you feel like you are still in the past. They put up the mandatory "retro" pictures on the wall, oldies on... More

OK--another stop for us when passing through Padcuah and it's always Parkers. The food, service and prices cannot be beat. Always go for the hugh chuck wagon sandwich and especially if it is on sale for the basket, fries and drink at a price you won't believe. We like the interior as it reminds us of our high school days.... More
