Great BBQ for a Chain

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.

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

A trip to Brentwood would not be complete without a stop at Corky's Bar-B-Q. There ribs are great and there pulled Bar-B-Q nachos are too.

Our waiter was great, very personable. Food was good, and served fast. Live music was good to listen to as well.

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

At a place wildly successful at Memphis style BBQ—the drive thru was snaking around the building on Saturday evening—my son enjoyed the beef brisket with two sides, macaroni and cheese, which he pronounced “cheesy,” and crunchy French fries. I had the BBQ sandwich with pulled pork and cole slaw inside, and we both squirted Corky's BBQ sauce to add the... More

It fills you up if you eat it all. That's about it. If you are wanting a true bbq joint, go somewhere else. This is a heat-n-eat, not a cookery. If your purpose is to get full, get back to the hotel and take your shoes off, then this place works ok. No more. No less.

Everything was good from the service to the food. I had a soup bowl and it was terrific. The appetizers were yummy. It was nice ordering ribs that could be half dry rub and wet. Definitely will go there again!
