Love this place!

We come here every single time we are in the Memphis area. It's a huge fave in our family! Everything is good, but we especially love the rolls and the sauce. Don't miss the potato salad, either. I always order the pulled pork sandwich.

Picked up dinner through the drive thru. Pulled pork sandwich for me & ribs for my hubby. Corky's has always been good.

The best BBQ in Memphis? I hope not! Very bland / cheap tasting food. The best part of the meal was the french fries (that is hard to mess up) and the after dinner mint. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Bathroom was cleaned, but two of the toliets did not flush.

We regularly get BBQ, usually pulled pork, at Corky's when in Memphis - sometimes eating at the Poplar Ave or Germantown Pkwy location and at other times takeout. Today we had takeout and it was delicious as always.

We visited Corky's on a Friday afternoon. It was not too busy as this was New Years. We were seated immediately in a booth. My wife had a pulled pork sandwich and I had a sausage/pork combo. Both were very good. Slaw and fries were the sides. Service was excellent. If you are on a lunch time frame, they really... More

We have over the years gotten take out from all the Corky's locations and have never been disappointed. Recently we had a family gathering and we picked up BBQ pork and pulled chicken from the Cordova location. Beans and slaw completed the meal. I always order too much just to make sure that there are leftovers for the next day.... More

We had a great meal of ribs. Enjoyed the wet rub better than dry. The slaw was very tasty and did not really care for the baked potato salad.

I had tried Corkys about a year ago and was not impressed. I had guests from out-of-town and decided to try it once again. You know the saying “fool me once shame on you, fool me twice…” well that’s what it is. The restaurant is not that good. The service is good and friendly, but the food is heavy is... More
