First of all Parks Mill BBQ is about 5 miles out of the way, not near anything in Abingdon and you will wonder if you are going the right way. However once you get there it is in a really pretty area. The grounds are very pretty, along a little creek or stream, and they have outside picnic tables along the stream and also on a covered porch and a couple inside tables.
We arrived there on a Thursday and the place appeared to be open, the doors were open and there was a man outside tending the plants and a lady passed us going out the door as we were going in the door but we were ignored by both of them. She put on a pair of gloves and started helping the guy. We were left alone to walk around for approx. 10 minutes in an empty store where it looked like they had at some time served BBQ but it wasn't going to happen today. Everything looked very disorganized and no one ever came to even see what we were doing in there. We walked back out to our car, noticing the "Today's Special" sign on the door which included BBQ Sandwich, chips and drink for about $5 or $6. As we walked to our car the lady looked at us and my husband asked her if they were open and she said exactly..."Nope, Fri, Sat, Sun." That was it. I'm not rating the food here, I'm rating the service, which was nonexistent. We went back into town and found Bone Fire Smokehouse. The food there and the ambience was great. Finally, some BBQ!
