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.

We stopped in on a Sunday afternoon after visiting Arbor Day Farm. Amanda, our server, greeted us right away. She was prompt, explained the different sauces, guided us on the best sellers and was perfect. I had the ribs and they were delicious. I would definitely go back and ask for Amanda!

Stopping on a whim, we visited Parker's Smokehouse for the first time. The weather was beautiful, so we chose to eat out in the outside veranda. Mistake no. 1: The honeybees would not leave us alone, so we ended up picking up all our food, utensils, glasses, etc... and moving to a booth indoors. Our server was very nice, but... More

Went here for lunch because we've gone to the one in Ashland and enjoyed it plus ratings were good. Very disappointed in the dried out and over cooked ribs. Had to ask for our "sides" and drink refills never offered. This location needs to step up!

Stumbled on to this place while getting apples in Nebr. City and wow, is it ever good! Finger-lickin' says it all. Had rib tips with cole slaw and salad. They have 5 difference bbq sauces all of which are great...and have an "on fire" sauce upon request. Don't pass this one by!

My husband and I read the trip advisor review and decided to try this place as there wasn't much of a choice in Nebraska City. We didn't get much past the door. The place was almost empty on a Friday night and the music was blasting so loudly that there was no way we could eat there. Hopefully management will... More

My husband and I just dropped our daughter off at Peru State for college and stopped in Nebraska City for a late lunch. Thankfully (in this case), the Leid Center was closed....a local told us about Parker's. So glad we stopped! Great music, liked the ambiance, service was fantastic, and the smoked brisket sandwiches, choices of sauces, steak fries, and... More

Even when the rest of town is deserted on a Sunday night, this place is busy. That should tell you all you need to know. I had the rib tips, which is like burnt ends but with the bone in. Excellent. The restaurant makes their own barbecue sauces, which isn't unusual, but they automatically bring you two or three potato... More
