Mmmm Brisket!

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... read 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

Excellent ribs and yummy smoked turkey from the "light" menu Our server did a perfect job Food came out almost immediately They have a neat twist on BBQ sauce with an apple flavor -- try it mixed with the hot one if you like a heat kick

Has good food and service. Was close to hotel. Price is average for this kinda place. It's a chain and there are some local places that are close that are better, but nothing wrong here either. we would visit again.

I decided to give Corky's a try recently because it is less than two miles from my home and I have not been there in years. The food was just okay. I guess I'll go back to the Bar-B-Cutie where I have gone every week or so for nearly forty years. It is five miles away, but worth the extra... More

In town and business and with 6 total in our party and the recommended Pink Cadillac platter was perfect to taste local BBQ which was surprisingly great for a chain restaurant. The service was great and the drinks where better.

My wife and I arrived 10 minutes before closing Sat. night and were seated by a friendly waitress who took care of us with a smile.. We ordered a half rack of great ribs and pulled pork. Very tasty and tender. The waitress packed the left overs so we could re-heat at the hotel. They have a live band on... More
