I live in California now an never get to go to Parker's in Wilson, NC anymore. I can tell you that there is NOTHING that I have ever found that can compare to the food there. The ambiance is simple and the serving staff is young and dedicated and friendly. There used to be several Parker's around not only in Wilson but in Rocky Mount as well. I would love to get back to Wilson and eat at Parker's. When I was there last you only had 2 choices. Large combination or Small combination. Chicken breast for large and chicken thigh for small. All you could eat of cornbread sticks, hush puppies, sole slaw, Brunswick Stew and the best bar-b-que imaginable. Those older folks you see when you eat there are the folks who have been eating there since they were kids. If I had a place like that in Anaheim, it would be packed. You MUST experience the simplicity and greatness of Parker's.

Pros: Best Carolina Pit Cooked Bar-b-que I can remember

Cons: I live too far away now to get there.

I posted the review below on Trip Advisor. I also gave the lowest rating possible for your management and staff. Your restaurant had been a fixture for our family for over 20 years. Your current management and staff are arrogant, obnoxious and lack basic business sense. The date was Sunday 6/14/09. The posting below was made on 6/19/09.

Save your time and money. Go someplace else. We were traveling from Baltimore and staying at the Quality inn. Stopped in and placed a large order. Several items were missing when we got to the hotel. When we returned the manager was too busy on the phone with his girlfriend/boyfriend to investigate. The entire front staff started going through thousands of receipts looking for our order. No one got waited on. The time and effort wasted cost much more than the sandwich and fries they forgot to put in the bag.
Save your money and time. EAT SOMEWHERE ELSE!!!!!!

I ate there last week and still cannot forget the fried chicken. The BEST I have ever had. Hands down. The BBQ is what all others are judged by. The place is packed for a reason. Some of the best southern food I have ever had, and I'm a southerner. Worth the trip from anywhere.

Pros: The best food. No waitresses. Only waiters in white paper hats and aprons.

Cons: 42 miles away from where I live

I had Parker's cater my rehearsal dinner for my wedding. We had family there from New York and Pennsylvania, and friends from several states. Everyone loved it and enjoyed eating the local cuisine. Eastern NC barbecue is unique, and Parker's is about as authentic as you can get.

This is another really good Carolina BBQ joint. Clean restaurant, polite staff and excellent iced tea. You know you're in the when you order sweetened tea and actually receive it!. Stop by Parker's whenever you're in the Wilson, NC area.

Parker's is one of the best all-around restaurants I've ever been to. The building itself is not terribly exciting, but the food is incredible, and the service is always fast once you're seated. The barbecue, brunswick stew, and potatoes with sweet tea make a winning combination (but the tea is very sweet...do be careful about that!) Also, they have great ice. And corn sticks.

Parker's Bar-b-que is an institution and recognized even farther than the current owners can imagine. I no longer live in the Wilson area. In fact. I couldn't possibly more far away - 12 time zones. However, my Mother and sister still live there and, of course, whenever I visit you can believe we dine at Parker's or get take out. Parker's, to me, is a lot of good memories dating back to the 1950's with my family and me just going out and being a famiy - something you don't see too much of any more.
A very good friend of mine who just happened to live in Rocky Mount before retiring with me on the far side of the world have met at Parker's and ate "family style" with our parents and the atmosphere and good feeling was still there. We recommend Parker's to many of our friends who may be traveling in that area and they all come back with good comments. Thank you, Parker's and I will see you in the future

While I haven't been there for about four decades, I still remember it as the highlight of driving down from Northern Virginia to Wrightsville Beach NC for summer vacations. The other reviews totally echo what I remember from so long ago. If I am ever back in their area (I live in CA), I will certainly make an effort to go back.

I can't say enough about the flavor of the pulled-pork barbecue. It is my favorite pork barbecue in the country. Everyone I've introduced to it have fallen in love. I even had some Venezuelan friends who live in Houston, TX call me about having some shipped to them, since their 10 year old son said he was "CRAVING" Parkers pulled-pork BBQ! It is so good!
