BBQ was not what I remembered, it didn't have enough seasoning or vinegar, but the hush puppies are the best. You can find better BBQ elsewhere

A lot of people will say Parkers is at the top the list because that's where their grandparents took them to eat after church when they were kids. Parkers has been around for ever and has always been a good old standby. It's good food and friendly service. The food is very consistent but, just not outstanding. People that swear... More

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
