Never a bad experience

Paducah has a lot of chain restaurants right off of exit 4 on I-24, but if you're looking for a good mom and pop place to eat-- get off at exit 7 and go to Parker's.

This is the quintessential diner from the 50's! The inside is great with all sorts of 50's memorabilia, or you can stay in your car outside and order also. The food is good diner food, and we particularly enjoyed the friend mushrooms!

We are always make this stop and it seems it has become a regular stop for us anytime we are in Paducah.Kentucky. The chuckwagon sandwich is great as are the hamburgers. Love the 1950's atmosphere with all the neon around the top of the ceiling. Will always coem back time and time again when in town.

We were pleasantly surprised with the food, service, and atmosphere. Burgers were perfect and milkshakes were the bomb! We will definitely make this a favorite stop if ever in Paducah again.

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.
