The customer service is off the charts. There is so much history at this place. The family is amazing and makes you feel like family when you walk through the door. You will be in for a treat for their amazing food and unique Apple Crispos. You can't leave that place hungry. A place everyone should visit while in Greenville!... More

Chopped BBQ, green beans, slaw, Mac and cheese, Brunswick stew and hush puppies. Excellent especially the slaw with a mustard base. BBQ sauce very good also... More

Great casual food. Good pork BBQ, slaw and sweet tea. Usually a line at lunch and dinner but service is quick. Recently one location has added a drive though but haven't tried that yet.

We had wanted to visit another popular BBQ joint but it was closed, so we "settled" on Parkers. I like Carolina style BBQ but had never actually had it in NC (we were in town visiting the area). The employees were so friendly, coming by often to make sure we had everything we needed. Since it was our first visit... More

We wanted to experience good Southern cooking and found it at Parkers. We ordered the family style meal at $12 a person and it was well worth it. They brought out, pork, chicken, green beans, hush puppies, corn sticks, cold slaw, and stew. The food is amazing! If you have never had true Sweet Tea go here, the BEST! This... More

This is a very good NC BBQ restaurant frequented by the locals. We ordered family style and had plenty to eat. They kept bringing us food until we told them we had enough.

We eat here every time we come to town. Delicious pork . Can't say I would recommend grilled chicken. Too dry for me. Good green beans, slaw, and hush puppies. Reasonable prices. Excellent service by mostly college students.
