Foursquare Tips

  • The Poor Boy Double Burger: the ultimate drive-in burger.
  • The fried chicken is excellent. And the Patty Melt is one of the best in Lexington. But, you must try the "Poor Boy" to be a true Parkette connoisseur!
  • Liver box......nuff said
  • Service was great for us! Billie J was awesome. Poor Boy, O rings, tots, chili cheeseburger, wing basket and colossal car crash all DELICIOUS!!! :-)
  • Try the Po'Boy burger, featured on Diner, Drive-ins and Dives.
  • Arrive early to find a working speaker at curbside. Seems as if every other speaker is out of service. Many have been for months.
