This restaurant has been serving great eastern NC barbecue since 1946. My cousin remembers going to Parker's for the first time that year: he was 7 years old!! Now he comes all the way from Florida to visit and take home some barbecue. Nothing fancy at this restaurant; just good southern cooking. Delicious Brunswick stew, slaw, boiled potatoes, other good... More

If you want to try the typical Southern Food in the area Parker's will be a perfect fit. The fried chicken and the hash puppies are excellent. The staff is friendly. You feel like eating at home with your family. Really nice experience.

All the waiters are all clean cut polite young men. They wear white shirts and the old fashion white paper hats. They seat you with a big smile . Food comes to the table very fast and was great. Plan to stop on the way back and get some to go.

Parker's BBQ in Wilson is pretty good. Nothing overly special but good basic barbecue and fried chicken. They do have excellent sweet tea. The atmosphere is fast paced when it comes to the waiters. They take your order, bring your food and generally only return if you flag them down for more tea. It's not a restaurant where you are... More

Parker's Barbecue is an outstanding place to eat if you like good barbecue and oyster stew and lots of it. The price is right, but be sure you have cash, they do not take plastic! But they do have an ATM on the premises if you forget.

We moved from PA a few years ago and found out the hard way just how different "Barbecue" is down here. By far Parkers has the best. It is rather expensive for some items, but definitely worth it. Everything is homemade and tastes fantastic.

My family has been going to Parker's for 40 years on trips through the south. We fell in love with it in the 70's and would plan trips around it. Through the 90's and 2000's I did not get there very often, only about 3 times in a 15 year span and we all thought it was slipping a bit.... More
