Featured on Food Network’s “On the Road” and “Diners, Drive-ins and Dives”, the Parkette Drive In has been a Lexington institution since 1951.  Joe Smiley started the restaurant in the 1950s when roadside restaurants were gaining popularity across the nation and one of the favorite dishes was the “Poor Boy”, a double-decker hamburger still popular today.  The Parkette is known for delicious fried-chicken, milkshakes, burgers and fun atmosphere.
