Ok folks....read other reviews before stopping for quick bite....ordered chili burgers....NOT chili on the burgers....it is coney sauce....complete different ballgame! Place is cute, servers are friendly, but burgers are thin and flavorless....crinkle fries ok.....ice cream products look good, but we did not sample.....would not come back...

Not only is this place just a neat place to be, but the chili cheese dogs are to die for and you always get your fair share of ice cream. So if you ever want great food and even better service, just stop by Parkers!

Great food, friendly folks, pleasant surroundings. What more could you want? It's like going back to the drive-in eateries that were around, when I was growing up. A fifties theme, early rock-and-roll, it just doesn't get much better. Stop by and partake ! It's worth your while.

I stopped in to try to the Reuben sandwich and the fries that are rated so well on the site. The Reuben was good. The Russian dressing was tangy and flavorful. This is a must on a Reuben that many places fail. The sandwich was crispy and did not get soggy. The fries are crispy outside and fluffy inside. Very... More

The food was pretty good. My husband liked the ribeye sandwich. I had a burger. It was decent except it was a very thin frozen patty.

Ate at Parkers today. Had the cheeseburger, fries and a coke. Nice surroundings and a real throwback in time. The food was ok. I always use reviews when I am traveling to find somewhere to eat and thought this would be a good choice.

Local place with great food. The hamburgers are huge and so are the ice cream cones. Very friendly. 😊

Passing through Paducah and not in the mood for a chain fast food restaurant. We stumbled upon Parker somewhat due to other Trip Advisor reviews. The food was very tasty and reasonably priced. The French fries were extremely good. It was also nice having TV sets to see some college football. The only negative is that the staff didn't always... More

My husband asked for ice cream with family on his birthday and said he liked this place better than anywhere in town. Both hard serve and soft serve are available, homemade waffle cones, dipped cones, homemade ice cream cookie sandwiches and enormous banana splits. We also love their crinkle cut fries, and their Reuben sandwich is the best in town.... More
