    Classic drive in. Not one of my favorite DDD's but a solid choice.

    We loved it! Had a terrific meal with burger, onion rings and chili cheese fries with a shake. Excellent food but the waitress was even better. What a trip! She was fun. Loved the nostalgic feel to the place. If I lived near here I would be over every week.

    This was our first triple D adventure and we found it to be a very nostaligac atmosphere. The food was good and we had good service. We drove in from Louisville and I can say we will probably go back. Thanks Guy! I give this one 3 stars.

    Waited about 45 minutes after ordering, then was informed they didn't even have record of our order. Not pleased, but they finally brought it out on the house. :-E

    The atmosphere is cool but to be honest, go get a Big Mac. Nothing special about their food. Go by and take a pic of the building!

    The charm with the Parkette is the nostalgia. It's a genuine drive-in. The food was decent and our order was delivered very quickly. My wife really liked her burger and I enjoyed my all time favorite comfort food- a fried bologna sandwich. We both thought the onion rings were above-average.

    Ate lunch there today .... wife had livers... I had Big Lex Burger .... both great ...   confirms my reality ...  GUY DON'T GO TO NOTHIN' BUT GREAT PLACES !!!!!   I ate my first Pizza at the Parkette on Georegetown Road in 1960 compliments of my cousin and his girlfriend who were my idols (both 6 years older and Seniors in H.S.)  I'm 61 now, that old Parkette is long gone, the one in Lexington had fallen on tough times, was about to be lost, and  has been LOVINGLY restored to vintage 1960s diner ...  It's home, AGAIN, to great food and great memories.

    Parkette is known for it's "Poor Boy" hamburger. It's a double burger dressed with shredded lettuce, sliced tomato, onion, pickle, & mayo sitting in a boat of fries, tots, or onion rings. They also have great chicken boxes & shrimp boxes. Then you have to finish up with their FAB banana or butterscotch milkshake!
