This is a great location for Corkey's but the original at 5259 Poplar Ave in East Memphis is still my favorite. What can one say but that since 1984 Corkey's has been making great southern BBQ and ribs. The Collierville location certainly carries on the tradition. We had the ribs and as usual they were smoked to perfection. Great rubs... More

The atmosphere in Collierville location is not as good as the original restaurant on Poplar in East Memphis - but the food is terrific. Have used the catering from East Memphis location - I never have a party without Corky's bbq pulled pork and bbq beans!

mes BBQ is sometimes too dry, even with extra corkys sauce. Take out is easy and tasty too. Definitely one of the better BBQ joints, but having a choice of dark (moist) vs. white (dry) meat would be helpful.

Corky's is a great hometown place. We always enjoy their food and great service. So good, we had my son's rehearsal dinner there. The management was so helpful in the event coming off without a hitch. And no guest left hungry!

In a city famous for BBQ, Corky's remains one of the top choices. The Collierville restaurant lacks a bit in atmosphere compared to the original East Memphis location but excels in service. The ribs are great as are the BBQ plates. You might be surprised at how good the tamales are if you want to try something different. Overall a... More

I'm a fan of the ribs at the rendezvous restaurant in downtown Memphis; but Corky's really does have great ribs & the BBQ sandwiches are big & fantastic! If you've never tried BBQ spaghetti, Corky's is the place to do it. It's so good! Hot buttered rolls are served as soon as you sit down. Memphis BBQ is the best... More

it was a good bbq sandwich with all the fixings but I was not impressed. Price was fair and the service was good but if I heard there were better somewhere else I would definitely give it a try over coming back. Mind you there was nothing wrong with my meal, just average...
