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

The place is really cute with a successful 50's vibe, locally owned, and probably been around since the 40's! The menu is great with Ice Cream, Old Fashion Malts etc. Mostly Burgers, but I have to say I have had better burgers. Nothing special. When all you serve is basically burgers, I would expect a tastier, hotter product....and we had... More

We have been to Paducah several times, but it wasn't until our last trip that I found out about this place. It is a fun place to go and the food is good. We had chuckwagon sandwiches and fries this time - it was good. And then a Milkshake/ice cream treat - it was great. A fun place for family... More

Just an average burger and crinkle cut fries. The menu is huge, and maybe we just didn't order the best they had. Their desserts looked delicious, but we didn't try them. They had a steady stream of customers inside the diner & at the drive in stalls.

Eating here was a blast from the past. I had a chuckwagon sandwich, which is a breaded and fried hamburger, with old fashioned crinkle cut fries. Both the fries and the patty were fried crisp. They had a huge and varied menu. Looking back I wonder how McDonalds and all those fast food restaurants got started with places like Parker's... More

Can't say enough how enjoyable this place was. Takes you back to the 50's or 60's with curb side service. Music playing was great to listen to.

Our family enjoys eating at Parker's often to enjoy their burgers, catfish and variety of items plus soft serve ice cream and selection of flavors "by the scoop" ice cream. They have local BarBQ and daily specials. We like the food, service and friendly, family atmosphere. If we don't want to go inside, it's easy to drive up and have... More
