For terrific Carolina bar b que off of I-95 this is the real deal. Everything was properly prepared and the portions are substantial. Cost is low and this is NOT a tourist/traveller stop-it is all locals. Highly recommend it to any off-exit food traveling through NC.

On a road trip to visit my sister, I stopped at Parker's and could not be more pleased that I did. It was 7 pm Sunday night. The place had a lot of activity. Walked in and was greeted by three or four of the staff. Seated myself, as directed, and was promptly served. Roadfood.com recommended the barbecue but the young man who waited on me recommended the combination platter which includes fried chicken. For an extra charge I upgraded to white meat. The dinner included an ample portion of great barbecue, delicious fried chicken, brunswick stew, cole slaw, boiled potatoes, hush puppies and corn sticks. I am not a big eater, but I finished everything but the cole slaw which was too sweet for my taste. It would have been better on the barbecue than eaten separately. The glass of sweet tea was accompanied by a small pitcher to provide my own refills. Total, before tip - $8.60. And the service was attentive and friendly. Great meal, great service, great price.

The line to get in the place wraps around the parking lot on Sundays. What else do you need to know?

Best Bar-b-que in town! Restaurant is old fashioned but that's what makes it appealing. They also have some of the best sweet tea you could ever taste and their corn stick are awesome dipped in bruswick stew!
