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

So I love drive-ins. I really do - because I associate them with the kinds of places my grandparents used to take me. Down-home, good food with a smile. Parker's is a great place for burger and shake. To be honest, I haven't gone much further with the menu - but I've sampled some things my friends have gotten, and... More

When driving through Paducah from St.L to Nashville, my family of 4 stopped and are at this cute diner for less than $24. My daughter got the baked potato which was very large for the price and had it topped with bacon which they were very generous with how much was given. What stood out the most was the very... More

Everyone needs to eat here at least once! The food is wonderful, especially anything with bacon (they pile it on!) The ice cream is so good! If you get a cone....don't get the large. Trust me...it is SO HUGE that 2 people would have trouble eating it! My only critique is I really wish that they would get different (or... More
