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

We were passing through NE City and consulted TripAdvisor to find an interesting lunch spot. Parker's Smokehouse was an excellent choice! Friendly servers, small town atmosphere and delicious food. We split a two meat dinner with pulled pork and brisket, and added two smoked ribs. The pulled pork was some of the best we've ever had, and the smoked ribs... More

We arrived on a night that they were serving smoked prime rib. I couldn't resist! It was melt-in-your-mouth delicious. I want another one right now! :) My sister had the "naked" ribs, and she enjoyed them as well. Because I had never been before, they brought out a little cup of French fries and explained each of their BBQ sauces.... More

The atsmosphere outside was pleasant, and the music was not loud. They had tables outside for customers to dine at.We were greeted, and seated quickly.Inside was... More

My husband and I decided to eat here for lunch while staying in Nebraska City. It was very good! We each had the beef brisket sandwich special. The meat was very tender and not fatty at all. I really liked the potato salad too.

Needed lunch while visiting Nebraska City, so decided to give Parker's a try. My husband and I both had the pulled pork sandwiches. The pork was very tasty, not fatty and they have a variety of sauces to choose from. My only complaint would be the bun to meat ratio. Not that it wasn't enough meat, just the bun was... More

Great food, huge portions. I could have easily shared my meal with at least 1-2 others. Nice atmosphere. Server, Liz, was great.

Had the Prime Rib. Excellent. Prepared it exactly the way I ordered it, Medium Rare. Service was good (Allison was our waitress, very friendly also), and the price was very reasonable. We will be returning to try the brisket and ribs. Looking forward to it.
