They never seem real busy, but the food is always good. The tamales are really good, ikr but they are. Pulled pork isn't my fav but it is pretty good.

Living in California I realize my top 3 things missed about being home in the south...southern hospitality, sweet tea and BBQ, not always in that order, but you get my drift. Literally from the airport straight to Corky's...picked up huge order of pork and fixin's for six folks. OMG...the nanna pudding, are you kidding me; don't forget the gallon of... More

Corky's is a small resturant inside Collierville. Beware of small parking area. Once you get inside you will find a warm and inviting atmospher. The service is wonderful and the food is A+ I've had many items on the menu but my favorite is the pulled pork platter. If you like to get a little something before your meal comes... More

I love to take out of town guest to Corky's because Memphis is know for having the best bbq. Corky's has the best. Everytime I visited my daughter at Auburn she would always want me to bring her Corky's.

Corky's has some of the best barbeque in Memphis, and do not forget to try the ribs. They also have an excellent fried catfish.

We ate here a couple of times, and the food and service were consistently good. The ribs were good and the pulled pork sandwich was very good. The sides were good also. Enjoy the music from the '60s, '70s, and '80s too; you'll either be singing or tapping your foot. It isn't the best BBQ in the Memphis area, but... More

Ordered ribs and wife ordered BBQ Sandwich. Had beans, slaw and small onion loaf as sides. Sandwich was good as were beans and slaw. Ribs were less below average, Lots of fat and very greasy. Onion loaf was not well cooked, below Corky's usual standard. Third or fourth trip to this location over the years and it will be the... More

Everytime I visit the kids and grandkids in Memphis, we have a huge take-order from Corky's. The ribs are wonderful, the pulled pork is tasty, the bread is good and the beans delicious. I don't think we have ever had a bad experience with this restaurant. Corky's is one of many places to enjoy the experience known as Memphis BBQ.... More

Yes, Buffet is on Wednesday....any day is good, but Wednesday is a day for Buffet at Corky's ....you may need to park in an adjacent parking lot.
