I was told this was one of the best BBQ joints around ... its okay, nothing to honk your horn over. My wife was also disappointed with her meal as well and did not view staff as very friendly.

If your mouth is set for good Eastern NC barbecue and you don't have time to run to Ayden to eat at Bruce Jones' Skylight Inn, head for Parker's Barbecue in Greenville! Their barbecue is cooked on gas so it isn't quite up to Skylight Inn standards, but it's really good, and Parker's has the VERY BEST fried chicken, brunswick... More

Wow, I love this place for several reasons. In addition to dinner being really cheap for 3 people, the food is amazing, the same consistency every time I went, and left me stuffed by the end. I don't bother ordering the individual meals, but instead got the family style whereby the waiter brings several dishes and sides right to your... More

I have been eating at this restaurant off and on for many years and can honestly say that the barbeque pork and fried chicken is always the same! It is very good and fast service in a high volume restaurant.

Real good Bar-B-Que. Service is quick and the food is very good. I have eaten at both locations and both are equally good. The staff is very friendly and gets your meal to you quickly.

Ran in to get a quick bite in between meetings. So happy we did. Our hotel clerk told us about this & also checked trip advisor to make sure. When we walked in the waiters are standing @ front to follow you to the table you choose. The service is excellent!! Did not even have to ask for anything. I... More

Parker's is an institution, and they move a huge quantity of food. When I used to eat meat, this was a regular stop, especially for take-out. They have everyone else beat for speed at large quantities, but for those who want to live to eat another (lots of others) day, I can't recommend it. The pork BBQ includes the skin... More

This is the place that is our "go to" for fried chicken, especially gizzards and livers! They have okra also! Easy to get in and out! My husband loves their sweet tea!

I am no expert with BBQ, let alone NC BBQ. Having said that, I really enjoyed the taste of the pulled pork and chicken. Our service was great, too. Very good and very inexpensive!

Great bar-b-que, best I've ever had. But get there early or they may be sold out..... Small place and very minimalist. No big screen tv or mixed drinks, just good food.
