    Vacation for us means looking for the nearest Triple - D at or on the way to our location; 20+ so far. Parke tte Drive In was a treat. Old diner with an add on 50's "garage." As always, we had what Guy ate and then some. The fried chicken was very good. I dipped mine in the side of milk gravy. The onion rings are worth the extra cost. The chili cheese dog tasted better than it looked :-) My husband liked "Road Flares" but wished he'd had an additional side of the hot sauce to dip them in. Finished with a vanilla malt with strawberries, which is NOT a strawberry malt, it was FABULOUS!! This is a must stop when in Lexington!

    The Parkette has been on my food on TV bucket list for a while. The anticipation was great and we weren’t let down. Fantastic atmosphere, staff and food. Prices were cheap except for the buckets of chicken to go. Our server was a riot. We tried the Gone Fishin’ Seafood Combo and the Our Famous “poor boy”. Wife had a chocolate shake. That shake had a great chocolate flavor. The fish was very good, real fish fillets not pressed together. That biscuit had plenty of weight to it and melted in your mouth. The “poor boy” is a classic double decker burger. The tater tots are a great change to fries.

    Definitely a must try! Good food, fun staff... and we waited less than 10 minutes for our food! Our family of 5 tried the fried chicken (yumm!), chili cheese dog, big mouth bourbon bbq bacon burger (name is almost as big as the taste!) and a big Lex burger... everything was well prepared and was filling! Loved the tots and onion rings, too! Will be back on our next road trip through Lexington.

    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!
