To All: A exciting time in Springfield, IL. They have daily specials that are American flavor. The price is right. A visit to Charlie Parkers will be remembered forever. I hope you can meet Mike Murphy, the owner. Christian

Charlie Parker's does not look like much from the outside, but the food is great! We got there at 11am on a Sunday morning and the place was packed. We only had to wait about 15 minutes for a table. Waitress kept coffee cups and drinks refilled. All six of us had something different but all agreed we would be... More

I couldn't figure out what the pizza boxes coming out of the restaurant at breakfast time were for. Then I saw the pancakes. Holy flapjack!!! Those things are huge! I am a paleo person so I went with the smoked pork chop and over easy eggs. YUM. My kids loved the pancakes. Coffee great! Expect to wait a bit. Awesome... More

One of the places that was recommended to us when we visited Springfield was Charlie Parker's. Since being featured on Diner's, Drive-ins, and Dives the place has garnered a bit of attention and has become somewhat a destination for those local and traveling to the area. We decided to try it on a Sunday morning before we left town. The... More

Went for breakfast and as usual it was great - 2 eggs over easy - one giant pancake as large as the plate! bacon and hash browns. Wait staff is wonderful even with a big crowd. Even got a drink to go! Will be back soon!

Charlie Parker's is a breakfast and lunch restaurant featured on Diner's, Drive-ins, and Dives for the famous open faced horseshoe sandwich. While numerous Springfield IL-area restaurants feature types of horseshoes, this restaurant has a breakfast horseshoe as a featured dish. My family arrived two minutes before closing, but were still warmly received and served. I had the breakfast horseshoe with... More

Read reviews of Springfield restaurants to stop by something besides a chain. Found Charlie Parkers with a very high average review. Was with my mom this day, traveling home from Barnes Hospital in St. Louis. It was a first-time visit for me. Neighborhood was a little rough, mostly because of people who didn't mow adjacent lots and the area had... More

Sometimes there's nothing that will satisfy except a couple of fried eggs, toast, jelly, and a cold glass of milk. That was yesterday. Holy Cow it was ready so fast and cooked perfectly. Everything they make at this American cafe diner is classic. Go there. In fact, go out of your way to go there.

When the State Legislature is not in session in Springfield the restaurants are slim pickins. I found Charlie Parkers online. It was fun to find and I have never had a meal in a Qunsette hut before. The food and service were great. The diner atmosphere was exciting and plenty of local color.

Food was good and plentiful and service could not have been better. Every employee was courteous and friendly - it was a truly good luncheon experience!
