Excellent BBQ

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... read 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

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.

Casual dining. Clean restaurant. Eat in or carry out! Be sure to ask for extra sauce though. Reasonably priced. Two of us ate for $18.00. Great staff

I've been to Corky's Ribs in the Memphis area many times, especially to the one in Collierville, TN. My last visit was just last week. Outstanding food as always. I passed up the ribs (which are seasoned perfectly with famous Memphis-style dry rub) to get a delicious pulled pork sandwich. I wasn't disappointed. I love Corky's. The old rock n'... More

Our soccer group eats here every year when we come to the Germantown Tournament. Our waitress really hustled. The food was good and all of the staff were friendly.
