I would have loved to give this place a 5 star rating but the service was so bad. They had let most of the staff off we were told and our waitress had a chip on. The food was very good, with nice types of sauces to try just be prepared for a bit of a wait.

Typically we pickup from Corky's and take it home. We decided to eat in the restaurant, the wait staff was outstanding an super friendly and engaging. Of course the food is excellent as well. Definitely recommended.

We rolled into town late after a ten hour day on the road. The server directed us to the highlights, the brisket and the smoked sausage are my favorites. The food surprised us and was very good. the server was great and helpful.

Corky's is popular in our area. However, in recent years the menu or quality of food has changed. The barbecue is good, but not necessarily exceptional. The side dishes are ordinary. A slab of ribs at a reduced price can be included in a family deal which is a good value. The ribs are served dry or wet or combination.... More

The food here I found was average. The wait staff was very nice and willing to answer questions about the menu. I didn't find the food to be any better than what you could get at a Famous Dave's. The Banana Pudding on the other hand is AMAZING! I would come back here again just for that!

Really good BBQ. We went on recommendation of locals. We had a long wait and parking was terrible, but the food was good.

We had lunch on a Saturday. It was not crowded. I was really impressed with their dry ribs. There are several sauces available on the table but it was not necessary. Of the sides offered, we enjoyed -coleslaw, collard greens and fried okra. The waitress was very attentive and helpful in explaining the menu items.

The food at Corky's was not impressive at all. I knew Corky's was a chain and had hoped for good bbq. It was truly just okay. It's safe -typical chain. Not good enough to go back. Service was excellent though.

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...
