First time to Corky's

Went to Corky's for their ribs and was not disappointed. Tried the 'Legendary ribs' and as I was familiar with neither the 'Wet nor the Memphis style' I order both and with that the spiced apples. I was not disappointed. Very tasty.

The ribs and fish are delicious. Definitely go with the corn bread when given a bread choice. The onion loaf was amazing. More like a bloomin' onion but better. The parking lot is difficult to access and exit however it is worth the effort.

I have long been a devotee to the ribs served at Corky's on Poplar in Memphis which is consistent in quality. The Brentwood location is very close to the Memphis quality -- fantastic ribs with a good selection of sides. Though I live some 60 miles from Brentwood, it's worth going a little out of the way when I'm in... More

For the second time in 2 weeks my son and I picked up some pulled pork and fries. It's been delicious both times. Sauce is a little thicker and sweeter than what I'm used to but it's good. Fries are the seasoned kind so that was good for something different. Friendly employees both times we've been. Maybe one day I'll... More

First visit and not the last. I had their Gumbo Bread Bowl which was tasty. My buddies had the regular pork plate which looked great. This is classic southern BBQ!

I usually eat here when I'm in meetings close by and we go as a group of 15 or more. They are always accommodating and serve us in a timely manner with great hospitality!

I travel to Brentwood frequently and have went through Corky's drive thru on 2 separate occasions. They are busy for lunch but the wait wasn't too long and the drive thru staff was very courteous. I ordered the Pig Salad with barbecue pork and it was delicious. I would definitely recommend it.

Maybe I was expecting the same as Memphis. It's average BBQ. Not bad but not Corkys. I had the ribs and tried the brisket a little dry and did not have the flavor I was hoping for. The best part is seeing the sign and feeling you got lucky that there is a Corkys . Then you eat and eh
