Anybody from North Carolina knows this is the best BBQ you can get anywhere. You can't be in Greenville and not experience this place at least once.

Quick service and good food!! The price is reasonable, the friend oysters are a bit pricey, as everywhere, but well worth the money. Plenty of parking.

Traditional NC BBQ, it was very good along with the Chicken, Lots of starches served when we ordered it family style. Visiting cousin from Florida along with her better half, also other cousins were there also on her side. Food over all was good, service was very good, definitely would return.

Parkers was just ok the pork was bland and very spicy and only vinegar BBQ sauce the menu was a bit to navigate but overall for a mass production BBQ joint it was ok

In a state and area known for NC vinegar barbecue the best one can say is that this restaurant is large and conveniently located. Filling, tasty, is what it is. Nothing to write home about

Food is very good when we're in the mood for a chicken and/or barbecue* dinner with boiled potatoes, Brunswick stew and coleslaw. (*That's Eastern NC pork barbecue, not barbecued chicken - for those unaware.) Decor is absolutely non-existent, but it is very clean. Service is attentive and fast. We come here fairly regularly.

Having gone to ECU and savored DW's, I know greasy (but good) food! Parker's is not good - period. The atmosphere is no better than the old Jones Hall cafeteria on campus, and the BBQ is minced small for all of the elderly customers. It's like sawdust. It's a shame too as there are some of the country's best BBQ... More

Authentic eastern Carolina barbecue, attentive service, fun atmosphere. Eastern Carolina barbecue is vinegar based, their mustard slaw is the perfect side. Get the corn hush puppies. YUM!!
