I had an excellent dinner here. The day I was there they had catfish on the menu (It was delicious), I paired it with the wet ribs for an excellent meal (Topped with pecan pie). Staff was excellent (friendly and attentive). This location is very convenient to my preferred hotel so I will be back in the future.

I sampled several different meats when I visited Corky's and there's a reason everyone comes here for the ribs. The dry rub is delicious and using their barbeque sauce on top of it makes them that much better. Like all barbeque restaurants in or around Memphis, you just have to go.

It was great and at a good price for the food. I really liked the coleslaw and the service was good too.

Corky's never disappoints turning out great food at reasonable prices. Chose the pulled pork salad. There was a least a 1/2 lb of pulled pork on top of a huge salad that I ended up bringing home for two more meals. The service is always great and even though it is quick you don't feel rushed to leave. I definitely... More

When looking for a restaurant I normally read the bad reviews first. I noticed that this restaurant had not had a bad review in two years. That's a good start. Then, I looked at the menu on their website. Looked good. The best part came when we visited the place. Seating was quick. Service even quicker. My wife was not... More

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
