This is good BBQ

I can't believe I am giving a chain such a good review, but I am. Corky's is really good. I eat a lot of BBQ and this is one of the best in the area, if not the best. The ribs and chicken are great, the pork is wonderful, and the beef is excellent. The onion loaf is to die... read more

We found this place online while staying overnight in Brentwood. It was AH-MAZING! The service was super friendly, the prices were right and the food / barbeque was delicious!! Would highly recommend!

Our visit was rather disappointing. Service was sketchy at best. Chicken dinners were served cold, as in not just room temperature but actually chilled! Would consider other restaurant choices next time.

Stopped at Corky's for dinner while I was on a business trip and the food was outstanding. Ordered a rack of ribs 1/2 dry rubbed and 1/2 wet with BBQ sauce with Coleslaw and a Baked Potato. Outstanding quality ribs with a great smoke flavor. Menu choices for the whole family.

The service was good. The prices are OK. The ribs were plain awful, dried up and stringy and too much paprika by far. The potato casserole was cold. The fried okra was good. The kid's meals looked reasonable. The pulled pork was "OK". The place was crowded, especially with folks going to the drive through. I am being nice to... More

We went to this location for the second year in a row for our Team Dinner. They have live music, Food is great and staff does a great job getting everyone served. The only negative is they are a little slow on processing payment at the end but it doesn't deter from the great food.

I think that Corky's has a loyal clientele that would eat here if the place were flying away in a tornado. To my taste buds, it is not as good as it once was. The atmosphere is a little dark. The service okay and the food okay.

Good bbq in a casual setting. BBQ pork was good, brisket was good, mac and cheese very creamy good and deep fried corn on the cob was a great carb-load treat. Also really liked the potato casserole; just like home. We also bought BBQ sauce to take home, it was so good. Only criticism I can think of is that... More

Last night in the area, used Yelp reviews to narrow down between 2 BBQ places, thank goodness we chose Corky's!!! Our server was Aly, super friendly and attentive, but genuine. We were visiting Tennessee for the first time, and her menu recommendations were fantastic. It was a Thursday, and their rib special was the best I've ever had. The food... More
