Best Ribs

Best dry smoked ribs I have ever tasted. Not lashed in sauce so I could really taste the flavour of the meat and enjoy great cooking. Went around the back and saw the smokers set up in the trailer.

This was the best of the BBQ joints we visited during our trip to Memphis. I suggest ordering the ribs dry and do not miss ordering a Cornish game hen. We also tried all the sides, which were excellent.

I have eaten BBQ in all the areas that are known for their special tastes. I have never had better than Cozy Corner and the owners are great folks. We only located it by asking a fellow police officer where he would recommend and he was fast to give us directions. We had a combo of ribs and pulled pork.... More

On a recent trip to Memphis we tried several BBQ joints. I mean, we were in Memphis! Cozy Corner doesn't look like much on the outside and you think twice about going in but do go in. It was the best of all the BBQ places we tried in Memphis.

Yummy Memphis BBQ! I would definitely recommend this place. It seems to be in a bad neighborhood right on the Arkansas border, but the food is amazing. It's a hole in the wall (had to drive past twice to find it) and it's basically an empty room with patio furniture, but what it lacks in atmosphere, it made up for... More

Locals rightly rave about Cozy Corner. Contrary to another post they are open but relocated across the street while they renovate their old building. I had the 4 bone ribs (you can get two or half a slab) and my wife had the rib tips. Some of the best slow cooked meat I've ever had. While my wife's "hot" sauce... More

We enjoyed the delicious bbq here, had ribs and chicken wings as well as the cornish hen. Must stop by Pop-A-Roos next store for some gourmet popcorn. Make sure to get extra to take home.

On a recent solo trip to a blues festival in Helena, Arkansas: After a little hotel breakfast I left out of Sikeston about 9:30. Two hours and 140 miles later, I stopped in Memphis. During the drive, I decided which of the myriad of Memphis BBQ joints would be my lunch spot. I chose the Cozy Corner, a “hole-in-the-wall” place... More

cosy corner at 745 n. parkway in Memphis, tn is "closed", gone, not there, empty building......from the looks of the building I can understand it being closed.

Walked here but the storefront moved across the street. Seems much nicer than the old place. The menu seems smaller than the old menu (no spaghetti). I ordered the rib tip and they were good. My friend ordered the ribs and they were very meaty and very good. Everything was good but did not live up to the reputation.
