The dry Memphis rub on the ribs was fantastic. The food portions are very generous. I typically can eat all that is served to me and I did only because I did not have accommodations to take leftovers! The Fried pickles make me salivate just thinking about them again. Too bad I live so far away in California...

Very average BBQ. They seem to try hard but miss the mark on most of the meats and sides. Good onion rings! If you are familiar with the Corky's in Memphis you will be disappointed.

A friend of ours in Hawaii highly recommended this restaurant based on his experiences with Corky's in Memphis. He wanted us to get some dry rub for him and my wife and I decided to have some lunch while we were there and we are very glad we did! I had the dry-rub ribs, a tamale and corn bread muffin.... More

My husband and I often share the slab for 2! He gets dry rubbed and I get the wet half, we each select 2 sides, corn muffin for him & soft roll for me all for about $25.00. We add sweet tea and pie and end up with a tasty meal at a good value. With tax and tip $40.00... More

Great stop for BBQ and the special was just right for a taste of almost everything but with iced tea and banana pudding complete ;)

The staff are really great here and the food is ok. But only ok. Would be great if they sold wine by the glass or any wine at all. We won't be going back there because of that unfortunately

A nice selection of bar-b-q. Loved the atmosphere and the staff were great. A TN staple if you are in the area give them a try you will like it.

We had a great meal at Corky's. It was our first visit. We ate an early supper meal. There was no wait. Our waiter was excellent. We had a coupon for a free appetizer. We got the sampler platter. It was a meal in itself. The fried pickles, ribs, sausage and chicken strips were all excellent. Our meals were ribs,... More
