The place is really cute with a successful 50's vibe, locally owned, and probably been around since the 40's! The menu is great with Ice Cream, Old Fashion Malts etc. Mostly Burgers, but I have to say I have had better burgers. Nothing special. When all you serve is basically burgers, I would expect a tastier, hotter product....and we had... More

We have been to Paducah several times, but it wasn't until our last trip that I found out about this place. It is a fun place to go and the food is good. We had chuckwagon sandwiches and fries this time - it was good. And then a Milkshake/ice cream treat - it was great. A fun place for family... More

Just an average burger and crinkle cut fries. The menu is huge, and maybe we just didn't order the best they had. Their desserts looked delicious, but we didn't try them. They had a steady stream of customers inside the diner & at the drive in stalls.

Eating here was a blast from the past. I had a chuckwagon sandwich, which is a breaded and fried hamburger, with old fashioned crinkle cut fries. Both the fries and the patty were fried crisp. They had a huge and varied menu. Looking back I wonder how McDonalds and all those fast food restaurants got started with places like Parker's... More

Can't say enough how enjoyable this place was. Takes you back to the 50's or 60's with curb side service. Music playing was great to listen to.

Our family enjoys eating at Parker's often to enjoy their burgers, catfish and variety of items plus soft serve ice cream and selection of flavors "by the scoop" ice cream. They have local BarBQ and daily specials. We like the food, service and friendly, family atmosphere. If we don't want to go inside, it's easy to drive up and have... More

Who knew Parker's catered, let alone a full breakfast! We used their service for a company sponsored breakfast, and Oh. My. Gosh. I've dined in several times and never been sorry, but I HIGHLY recommend Parker's for any catering needs, LOTS of food and a great price!

The ice cream here is amazing! My favorites are the strawberry malt and the butterfinger candy shake. They are definitely not stingy when it comes to their portions. Reasonably priced too.

Great burger and fries, some had the large, some of us had the small. The small was the perfect size for me.. They even have caffeine free diet coke, bonus for us.
