Located about 10 minutes from the Fairfield Inn. Great Barbecue. If you are looking for atmosphere, this is not the place for you. Large restaurant with a very friendly staff. Paper plates, and they only accept cash. An extra large BBQ with fries and hush puppies plus a soda is under $ 10. Can't beat it.

My first visit and I'll be back. Loved the bar-b-que and slaw. Casual atmosphere and more food than you can imagine for the price. Unbelievable.

I particularly like their coleslaw and hush puppies alongside a large portion of pulled pork....so good we ate here twice! We... More

There is nothing like this place where I come from in Indiana. I was with family who live in Wilson (lifelong) so they had been there many times and ordered for me. The small plate combo consisted of a chicken thigh and pork BBQ and 2 sides (green beans and boiled potatoes for me). The fried chicken was crispy and... More

We love eating at Parker's! The food is always so good. Tried the barbecue chicken this week and was not disappointed. Looking for good food, great prices, and that feeling of being at home - look no further!

The last time i was here was for a business lunch in 1998. The atmosphere was subdued then, but the food and the service was great. On our way home from the beach, I made it a mission to have Sunday lunch here. It was pushing 2 O'clock when we saw the parking lot - literally hundreds of cars and... More

Good BBQ and excellent fried chicken. It is a quick in and out stop for anyone wanting a good bite in a hurry. My only complaint this last visit was the BBQ had some bone and other non-edible fragments in it. They usually are better at getting those out before serving.

Stopped by on our way south. We were searching for good BBQ and the reviews were outstanding. We waiting in line for about 20 minutes. We ordered the pork and chicken plate with hush puppies, corn sticks, potatoes and beans. The hush puppies and corn sticks were very so dry, we didn't even eat them. The beans tasted as they'd...
