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!!! :-)
  • The Parkette Burger...DUH!
  • 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.
  • Good onion rings
  • Love this place... I come here every Thursday night :)
  • Don't go at lunch time the service is horrible!! They were rude and didn't acknowledge our group!
  • We had a party of 6. We had the fish and shrimp basket, kids grilled cheese, kids corn dog, Lex burgers with onion rings and chili cheese fries and pony keg beer cheese burger with fries. 5 stars!
  • Chili cheese fries are delicious!
  • The tater tots are my favorite, and I really dig the atmosphere in the summertime. Very old school, simple food, great price.
  • Poor Boy burger was the greatest thing on the menu but the fried chicken was outstanding as well. Highly recommend a stop at this classic drive in and establishment. Service was outstanding.
  • Authentic!
  • Funnel cake fries are AWESOME!!
  • Order the Poor Boy Double Burger. This ultimate drive-in burger includes two all-beef patties, cheese, onion, lettuce, tomato, pickle, mustard and Parkette sauce on a toasted double-decker bun.
  • Opened in the early 50s, the Parkette is a Lexington landmark. If you're on East New Circle and looking for a quick bite, it's worth paying a visit.
  • It was fun and it's really cool inside!
