Hidden Gem in Memphis

Hands down the best BBQ in Memphis. We found this place on a Memphis BBQ tour. It was outstanding. The best BEST ... Ooooh baby this BBQ is simply amazing. Super friendly staff. I would travel to Memphis just to go to the Cozy Corner.

Wanted some good Memphis BBQ on way through town and saw reviews and that it was just off I-40. Clean, friendly, fast. Had ribs, really disappointing. Obviously had been previously cooked, refrigerated, and warmed up. Still cold in parts, had that 2 day old leftover taste. Beans tasted like Van Camps with brown sugar. Good sauce, cole slaw not bad.

What a wonderful find in downtown Memphis. We dined on the sliced beef brisket plate and the Bologna Sandwich and both were mouth watering and eaten in its entirety. Nothing left on our plates. The tea was superb and reminded us of our mom's tea filled with sugar. Completely took us back 50 years wishing our grandmother was still here... More

I love this place. I was told about Cozy Corner by one of my co-workers. It was awesome!! My daughter took a plate of ribs to work and called home two hours later asking for more. We ordered a pound of beef brisket and a slab of ribs. The ribs and beef brisket were so tender. The food was hot... More

we saw cozy corner on Diners Drive is and dives. We got very excited that this was on our tour. all I can say is that I felt like I had a religious experience after eating their ribs. Smoked just right, dry rub with some heat. we will drive 8 hours back and spend the night for the best ribs... More

We were taken to Cozy Corner by a Memphis native (Memphian) as the first stop on our tour of the city. Great choice. Ribs, pulled pork, Cornish hen (!) were all first rate. Someone has said their barbecue bologna is so tender you can cut it with a feather. Don't know about that, but the meat we had was beautifully... More

I however was disappointed that their was no chicken or turkey offered. I don't eat beef or pork but this is the 1st BBQ joint I have been to that didn't offer... More

I live in Arkansas but am from Alabama. I travel to Memphis monthly just for Cozy Corner ribs. When I call they know my name. I order ribs on my way to Alabama and on my way back to Arkansas. Hands down these are the best ribs in the south. The real BBQ of Memphis. Rendezvous sucks and so does... More

After reading all the reviews for this place I expected the food to be better than average. We ordered the ribs. The sauce was good but the meat didn't just fall off the bone. Overall average food at a fair price.

Recommended as the best BBQ in Memphis by several locals. They didn't steer us wrong. The ribs and wings were amazing.(Quite possibly the best ribs and wings I have ever tasted.) The pulled pork sandwich was nothing to write home about. The banana pudding was also incredible. They are currently across the street from their original location. Would have missed... More
