"How dare you not call Parkers in Wilson one of your Best of the Joints ..." P.H.

A vintage joint, Parker's was founded in 1946 in Wilson by Graham Parker in a one-room building of logs floated down the Tar River. He raised his own hogs and cooked with hardwood coals. In time, wood gave way to charcoal and that, in turn, to the gas used today. And that's the end of an all-too-familiar tale.
