“Worth the trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

After our honeymoon to the SE USA, my husband and I have been looking for good BBQ in our area. Thank God we found Parker's! We now take day trips on a regular basis just to eat here. The Sweet potato fries are a favorite in our family. The meal for two blows "Famous" Dave's out of the water, especially since its not served on a trash lid.

“very poor service, food ok”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

Received the bill before we got our food, 3 of 8 adult orders were "lost" in the kitchen, salads were delivered with the main course. Not what I am used to getting for service from Parkers.

“Great BBQ in an unexpected place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

My husband and I are from Tennessee originally and are quite the BBQ connoissuers, so we were a bit doubtful that some folks in Nebraska could pull off pulled pork in such a way as to make us like it. These guys did, though, and if we're ever out this way again, we'll give them a repeat visit. If you go, don't miss the apple cobbler. It's more of a "crumble," but it's fantastic, too!

“Good place for NE City BBQ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013 via mobile

We have eaten here a couple of times while visiting NE City and staying at Lied Lodge. The food is consistently good. It is not the best BBQ on the world, but it is better than many others we have had. Our most recent visit was good, but we did notice a couple of things...

I had ordered sweet potato fries ($1 extra) and 2 naked ribs to go with my dinner. They brought me steak fries, and no ribs. Asked for the sweet potato fries hoping that would spur our server's memory, but it didn't. Oh well, my catfish strip dinner was very good otherwise. Would have liked the ribs though.

One of the others in our party had the ribs dinner and did enjoy them, but said they were a "lower" rib. He was a little bummed, but ate them all! We also had a pulled pork sandwich eaten in our group. Excellent sandwich!

Not our best experience here, but we would definitely come back. The food is good at a decent price. You won't leave hungry.
