Best ever ribs!

This little hole in the wall restaurant produces superb ribs. They are juicy, succulent, meaty, tender and the smoky crust on the outside has a nice light crunch to it. Most ribs I have had at other BBQ places are dry and much too chewy. This place has the exact combination of attributes you... read more

I wish I had gone to Cozy Corner earlier in my trip so I would've had a chance to go back a second time before my flight home. We got ribs, sausage, beans, and coleslaw. The ribs were absolute perfection...period. Smoke ring visible, not overly seasoned, fall off the bone. And if you like marrow, the bones get soft enough... More

I'm sure that there may be better somewhere, but I'm certain that Cozy Corner provided the best quality for the buck. Their rib ends and smoked sausage were great. I wasn't a fan of the corn, as it was boiled and not grilled, but overall, great place to

My wife and I had a Cornish hen, ribs and a few side dishes for lunch. The service was friendly and quick, and the food was outstanding.

Still the best BBQ ive had in Memphis. The store has moved across the street and they have a new attitude. The food was very quick to get out, beans and slaw still tasted the same, but the ribs didn't have that same kick. Still very good though. I recommend trying those adjoining shops, Pop-A-Roos Gourmet Popcorn and the smoothie... More

Cozy corner has temporarily moved directly across the street inside a sandwich shop. The ribs are the best in Memphis! I had a bbq pork sandwich today which was also great! I think Cozy corner had the best bbq in Memphis. Interstate is terrible!

Cozy Corner has the best ribs in Memphis. My husband also really likes the BBQ Cornish hen. We frequently drive over a hour just to eat here.

I grew up in Memphis eating barbecue all my life. bozos in Mason Tennessee has always been my favorite. Then I ate at cozy corner. Best ribs ever and they serve sliced pork. The only other place in Memphis that used to serve sliced pork was lambs and they have been out of business for 30 years. You can't go... More
