I always look for that hidden gem where the locals go. This is where many locals go, but there was just nothing special about it that would bring me back. It has great history, great local support, super nice staff and is very clean. But if anything, it made me want to give other local options a try. Definitely not... More

This restaurant was rated 10 out of 260 restaurants in Greenville. The staff was super friendly, but the food was so gross it was laughable!! Do not waste your time on this restaurant!

We stopped here on our way home from Myrtle Beach. The restaurant was fairly crowded on a Saturday afternoon. The food from the buffet is served family style meaning that you order from the items on the buffet and they bring it to you in large bowls. We had barbeque, chicken, chicken livers (which I requested), and ham. There were... More

We went here to try true NC BBQ with the entire soccer team. The staff was beyond helpful at getting us a large table. We were so glad to try this place.

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!
