The Pulled Chicken salad is huge and the ribs of course are world famous. I prefer a dry rub on my ribs and they have both.

Despite the proximity of Memphis to the Mississippi Delta and all it's farm-raised catfish, finding good, well-prepared catfish in this city is not always easy. When we came here 30 years ago, it was unbelievably sketchy to find good fried catfish. Over time, the hunt got easier, but in the past couple of years, it's back to being sketchy. The... More

I read a lot of good reviews for this restaurant and I really don' t like it. I order the ribs and chicken, the best part of my dish was the side bread. Near this restaurant exist a very good Pizza place called Milano and more cheaper

everyone should go on a Wed. for lunch buffet. BBQ pork, chicken, sausage, spaghetti and all of the sides to go with it at a reasonable price. All you can eat

The pulled pork sandwiches are the best! However it is very tasty and economical if you want to host a Gathering with BBQ on the menu...without the Hassel of grilling!

I have eaten in all of the major bar-b-q's in Memphis, and Corky's by far is the best always. The amount of food, and the quality is by far the best around. If you really want to try something amazing, believe it or not , is their fried catfish. That's right folks, you heard me right. Fried catfish, and their... More
