“Among The Best in Town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2014

We frequently find ourselves in Lebanon, Indiana on Sunday around noon. Three times in the past 4 months we have eaten at Parky's with friends. Different friends each time, but Parky's was the same every time. Getting in around 11:45 to 12:00 on Sunday gets you in ahead of the Sunday crowd. This gives you a distinct advantage, and you get right in without waiting. This is what we have done each time. The staff is attentive, and the food is good. Arriving around 11:45 we enjoy our meal and by the time we are done the line is waiting at the door to get a seat. Not sure about other times of the week, but we now know how to make it work for us on Sunday.

“Outstanding Food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2014

I got the kiss me not mushrooms and the pulled pork and sausage. The mushroom are sauge in a sherry stuffing topped with provolone. It has a wonderful taste and I would get it again. The pulled pork is smoky and the smoked sausage is on time. The sauce could be hotter, but maybe I should have asked. Worth the trip.

“Good food, great service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2014

We stopped into Parky's on our way into Indianapolis via I-65. Wonderful smell of BBQ greets you upon entering. I had the Pulled Pork place, baked potato and a salad, all of which was very good. Pork was tender & flavorful. Hubby had a unique sandwich, pulled pork, melted cheese with chili on top (I don't know about that one, LOL), but he says it was very good. Wait staff was very friendly & helpful.

“They have a nice outdoor sitting area”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2014

For a smokehouse they're not a good place. They steak was not cooked properly' but instead of replacing it' they kept sending it back to the kitchen for more time on the grill, which felt really awkward... eventually we gave up on it. They have live music and a bar area, as well as a lovely outdoor large sitting area. It just felt overpriced. It is, however, one of the better options in Lebanon for a nice evening out.

“Small town hospitality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

My husband and I had lunch recently at Parky's. The restaurant is very clean and nicely laid out. The service we had was second-to-none with a very attentive, friendly waitress. My husband had the BBQ ribs; I had a lunch salad. Both were very tasty and the extra BBQ sauce provided was very welcome. We liked lunch so much that we ordered some more BBQ to take home. We plan to use their carry-out service again.
If you want good food and a good price with excellent service, Parky's is for you!
