Craving barbq and was not disappointed. Lunch buffet has everything but ribs. No problem, wife ordered those. Banana pudding enough to fill me up; so I left about to bust. Everyone friendly and treated like regular. Love people who put more than a fake smile on me.

We went here searching for great ribs. We saw Corky's on TV one of those food channels. We ordered ribs and beef brisket. The wet ribs were more moist and meaty than Rendezvous and the sauce was good. But overall the ribs not better than what we can get back home. Brisket was super dry which took away any flavor...

Corky's is famous for their BBQ in Memphis. The hickory smoked meat practically falls off the ribs and is very tender and you can get them dry or wet both seasoned with Corky's seasoning or sauce. I would recommend the wet ribs. The dry while very good would have more flavor with the sauce. Other members of the party tried... More

We'd heard good reviews about Corky's so had to check it out. We ordered pulled pork sandwiches, a side dish apiece, an iced tea, a mug of beer, and a Southern pudding to share. The total bill was only $25, so this was by far the best value. The pulled pork was delicioius, the homemade chips tasty, and the dessert... More

I was taken out to Corky's for lunch while on business in the area and later on my own I returned for their fall off the bone, mouthwatering ribs! I love ribs and they are so messy, but these just came right off the bone! So easy to eat when they are so good and tender. Their sides are great.... More

Love everything about Corkey's and especially the original location on Poplar Ave. in Memphis. Slaw is unique as are all the dishes.

Hey Cindy! I'm happy to see that you enjoy Corkys and appreciate the kind words and the great review. We all at one point worked at the Poplar store, and have learned so much from Barry and Don Pelts. We try to make sure we do things in Cordova the way that they taught us, and the way that would...

Corky's has been/is a favorite of our family for years. We go there for special occasions and use the drive through when we have a craving flung on us and don't want to go inside. The sides are excellent as well: potato salad, slaw, beans---all great! I love the chicken and the pulled pork plate. Most of the family love... More
