The BBQ was good. We skipped lunch and snacked in the car and still couldn't finish our meals. The ribs, turkey, pulled pork, and sausage were excellent. Daughter finished her spaghetti and pronounced it "okay" and "really good" but finished all of it. Sides left room for improvement. Mac and cheese tasted like frozen from the store. Corn was okay...

Great food, local ambiance. Not high dining, but it's BBQ so I wouldn't expect it. The food was solid and good. Nice rock n'roll motif.

We eat hear many times a year and highly recommend it to anyone that like Bar-B-Q. I like the dry rum and my wife likes the traditional wet sauce. Either way, Corky's is outstanding and worth trying.

This restaurant has great ambiance for a Bar-B-Q place! The outside looks like a HUGE Bar B Q shack. The food is so good that they ship it around the world! If you go, do not miss the warm Chocolate Fudge pie with ice cream. To me this is the highlight of the meal. There is ample parking and plenty... More

I went one night and had the catfish platter with potato salad and hush puppies. The hush puppies are some of the best I ever had. Potato salad was great too just wish it was a bigger serving. Great place to eat the wait staff was great. Food was so good I went back the next night and had the... More

We were traveling through Memphis on our way to Little Rock. We wanted to get BBQ from Corky's because of a previous positive experience. So we placed a to-go order that would allow us to pick up the BBQ as we traveled through town. We had some special requirements -- one of us was driving and wanted to have the... More

We were seated at a table that we could hardly squeeze into because of overcrowding. Don't usually mind but this was even giving the wait staff problems. Our waitress commented that we were given a bad seating situation. May be time to thin out one or two tables to make patrons more comfortable. Enjoyed the food, but didn't want to... More

Went here with family while visiting the Memphis area. Great rolls and appetizers. Good bbq. Sauce wasn't the Memphis style (vinegar based) that I was expecting but overall it was a nice place.
