Good Memphis Bar-B-Que

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... read more

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!

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...

Great service and they give you a choice of dry or wet. Nice to enjoy the food without having to drive into Memphis.

I ate at Corky's in Collierville this past Sunday. I actually got take out for my family. Suffice it to say that the service was a joke. The host staff and the wait staff could not have been more rude and dis-interested in service. In fact, i asked for a manager 3 times, and I ended up with an assistant... More

Found restaurant on Tripadvisor as we were planning a visit to TN and AR. Due to a family member's food allergies, I reached out to the restaurant twice via their website contact page; no response. Despite that, we decided to give it a shot. We explained our situation and our server reviewed the ingredients and made sure the food was... More

I know a certain restaurant downtown Memphis is "supposed" to have the best bbq but I disagree. I like Corkys better....not dry and great banana pudding.
