Love this BBQ!

Had a great plate of pork shoulder and ribs. The baked beans were very good, the cold slaw was so so. Service was outstanding! Nice atmosphere but the upholstered seat of the booth i was sat in had about a foot of torn and worn material. I asked to speak the manager. He said he had been trying... read more

Corky's is a Memphis original. Whether you want their dry rub ribs, their wet ribs, or the delightful pulled pork there is always something to smile about at Corky's. And if you want it fast their drive up is quicker than most fast food restaurants. If you want to taste Memphis taste Corky's.

We have been going to Corky's, the original restaurant for over 20 years and then started going to this one at Cordova and at Collierville. We used to go there for their ribs, especially the dry ones and they were indeed very good. We also found that they actually have probably one of the best fried cash fish in Memphis,... More

We went here for supper while in Memphis for business. The food & service were both very good. I would definitely go again!

Always a must to stop off for lunch or dinner when visiting family in Memphis. Always great service and food. Everything is pretty good on the menu so you won't go wrong. Have even done family take outs from here and food is always well prepared. Worth a stop to try it out.

I had called a week and half ahead of time to tell them we had a party of 11 coming in and what time. We were told it depended on how busy they were, depended on how fast we go the table. Once there, we waited for 45 minutes, with no communication from any of the hosting staff, on the... More

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.
