I ate here recently and had the pulled BBQ plate. As far as BBQ goes- and I've had it from one end of the State to the other- it's good, but doesn't really stand out like some others I've had. They do have a variety of BBQ sauces, Texas Pete, and other vinegar-based sauce so that it can be seasoned... More

Fast, friendly service, great side dishes and SWEEEET! tea. Parkers is a family staple and is a consistently great place to get barbecue, fried chicken and all the "fixins" you've come to love in eastern NC.

Parkers is known for their BBQ, but they have a great selection to choose from. If you are having a large family group, I recommend eating "family style." The service is good and the food is great. It is a family-run business.

Parkers is consistently good and always a great value. Their vinegar based sauce is the best available in the area. And the hush puppies are fantastic.

I have traveled all over and found Parkers to be the best I have ever had. Southern food is delicious and I found it all great. The sweet tea was outstanding. Keep up the great work and enjoy.

Great NC Barbecue! Love the sweet tea and bread sticks! The service is great and the food is served very quickly. It is a little inconvenient that they don't take plastic.

As I grew up near Greenville I can remember going to Parkers for many years. They have been very consistent over the years. They have excellent sweet tea and it is sweet, so make it a treat. The BBQ is on the dry side but I use hot sauce or vineger on mine so it is just right and not... More

I cannot , for the life of me, understand why there are any good reviews . First off this good is truly awful. This does not resemble barbecue in any way. I got the combo plate , around. 10 bucks. I get a small Pile of pulled pork . This was dry and tasteless . Not even a hint of... More
