So, cowboy had just wrapped up three days of cattle showing and was tired of eating out of boxes and bags (as we're the cow dogs). On our way back to Wyo, yelp noted Parker's was just a few miles away. After a 3 mile detour off hwy 2, we found Parker's. It was a BBQ oasis. Great BBQ, tasty... More

Burgers on steroids, great sauces and dips, exactly what I had hoped to find in an American diner. Great range of beers as well. The staff were brilliant, the food was brilliant and so was the price. Excellent dining experience.

I've been a regular at Parkers for several years. The atmosphere is casual and the blue's music is perfect for this place. I am a particular fan of the smoked prime rib, chicken strips, and their amazing BBQ.

We had a late lunch and the place was not busy but the staff was mediocre at best.No personality,they did their job and that was it.The food was great especially the fried onion bloom.

For a recent trip, I planned places to stay and different cities to visit and try new restaurants. I found this place on the internet and then looked at their website. Never been to Nebraska City and thought it would be a good place to stop in to eat during our trip. We're glad we did. The ribs were awesome.... More

I am a Southern California resident and visit my son in Nebraska City twice a year. This is a favorite spot for a nice dinner while we are there. Great food, good service and a lovely ambience.

Not a lot of ambiance but good ribs. Recommended by the hotel, always suspect but the server was on top of it and food was great.
