Having grown up near Greensboro, I am not a big fan of eastern style BBQ which we consider to just be vinegar and pepper flakes poured over shredded pork; however Parkers (which is an institution in Wilson) does it right. The flavor and texture of their BBQ is very good and the mustard slaw make for an interesting combination when... More

My daughter and I are big fans of Eastern NC style BBQ, and decided to order some delivered to us in Florida. I chose Parker's because I have eaten at the location in Wilson, NC operated by a branch of the same family. Our order consisted of two 2-pound packages of BBQ. It was shipped by FedEx 2-day service, and... More

Wow. Since moving to this side of the state, I have had Parker 's in Wilson NC, and two locations in Greenville NC. They do have the traditional vinegar based NC bbq sauce. I really enjoyed the chicken dinner with its various sides. The atmosphere is homey and the staff is very friendly. The prices are reasonable and they have... More

Probably I'm the top two best barbecue restaurants in town. Fast service, reliable orders, friendly staff are the reason this place has been serving Greenville for decades!

We were very impressed with the prices here at Parkers. The food was good, and the ladies at the counter were very nice! Love the fact that you can choose how many hush puppies you want!

It's kind of greasy, but my family seemed satisfied. Don't go there unless you feel like eating meat there are really no other choices. The sides are a little disappointing but edible.

Consistently good food. Fast service. With so much competition for BBQ in Greenville you need to form your own opinion but definitely a candidate.

While visiting NC for the first time, of course I had to try the Eastern North Carolina BBQ, and Parkers is a well known chain here. Had pulled pork, mac and cheese, and Brunswick Stew. Also included was cole slaw, hush puppies and corn sticks. We were greeted promptly, but it took a while to get waited on. Got some... More

Occasionally on a week night we find it too hurried to go home from work and cook. Getting take out from Parkers is perfect. There is something for everyone's taste. The new take out-drive through is wonderful!!! We love Parkers fried chicken!
