First time in the area and the hotel said to eat at Parkers so I did. Ordered the family style meal. The BBQ was excellent. My only complaint would be wanting the sides and veggies to be more home made. For the price I think it merits it. If you want some good BBQ check them out.

Coming from Arkansas, we definitely know bbq. We have tried bbq from Memphis, Kansas City, Texas cities, and of course local bbq from Arkansas. North Carolina is a far stretch variety of "bbq". It's probably excellent to the natives but is definitely an acquired taste for those from other regions. Bbq here is very vinegar-y. Hush puppies were excellent, crispy... More

Places like this make me glad that I don't live down south, else I'd be 350 lbs and courting a coronary! Very good barbecue in that wonderful NC style I have grown to love. We went for an early dinner after driving 4 hours so it was lightly crowded. Service was great, our young server attended us well and I... More

My wife and i went to Parkers for lunch and we both ordered grilled chicken and it was really delicious. We also like the green beans and other sides. Also the cornbread and barbecue sauce were great. The service was on point. Love this place.

The barbecue, fried chicken & hushpuppies are good and consistent every time I go. The Brunswick stew is good but has a lot of pepper in it. They stay busy especially at lunch time. The only negative thing is that they don't accept debit/credit cards, it's cash only. They do have an atm inside, but you would have to pay... More

This restaurant is absolutely THE BEST in NC. I go here EVERY time I come home to NC. My family and I have to eat at Parker's. As far as the negative reviews go, I have NEVER had a bad meal here. The service is wonderful. Very friendly staff.

While traveling south, we came across a 4 star rating for Parker's so we stopped but we should have kept going . No bar nor BYOB neither. Food was served family style in 4 minutes flat. Fried chicken and hush puppies were the best offerings.. All other sides including the pulled pork (which looked like cat food ) were mediocre... More

I like that you're able to see your food cooked an prepared. The staff is nice and friendly. You can call in your order to avoid the lines because they are definitely busy on Sundays and during the evening hours. The tea is nice and sweet. The fried chicken and hush puppies are always a favorite. I'm not a big... More
