Just for my taste... Its cold and too salty for my liking. The service is not cheerful. You are just a tab/ check to them. Them tend to not kee the back clean.

Parker's Barbecue is the real deal - authentic Eastern North Carolina pork barbecue, complete with Brunswick Stew, green beans and Eastern North Carolina style red vinegar sauce. Packed at lunch, but service is pretty quick. Not fancy, just what you expect from the real deal. Definitely worth a stop when in the Wilson area.

Had a great lunch today in Wilson NC... Old style BBQ... Sweet tea (can't even get unsweet), boiled potatoes, New Brunswick stew, hush puppies.... If you get the combination plate you also get some good old fashioned fried chicken... Place gets pretty busy at lunch time was good comes quick & staff is attentive.

If you love eastern NC style barbecue this is the place to eat (all you can eat)! Lots of southern sides to choose from. Collard greens, chicken pastry, and way too many choices to list here but everything I ate was delicious!

My husband has been telling me about the fabulous BBQ from Parker's for many years. We came here with another couple and we all were very disappointed. One server took our order, a different one brought it out. That was it; no one ever stopped to check on us. We had to flag down a 3rd server when we needed... More

Enjoyed trying true Southern cooking here, in a relaxed, friendly atmosphere. Will be stopping back the next time we are in the area.

Diner setting. Only found this place through recommendation of my uncle, who suggested we meet there for lunch. All male servers in black pants, white shirts, and paper hats. Menu is BBQ, slaw, etc. Food comes out quickly. Great BBQ.

everyone has their favorites and this is one of mine. I prefer it to the nearby Bill Ellis. The family style chicken and BBQ plates are the way to go.

This wasn't the best meal I've ever had in a restaurant, but it certainly was the best under-$10 meal I've had in a LONG time. The interior looks like it hasn't changed in 30+ years. The staff is extremely friendly. Apparently locals don't need menus because when we asked for one, the server asked where we were visiting from. The... More
