We love the BBQ at Corky's. We usually order the pulled pork and the chicken (I get leg and thigh; hubby gets breast). Both are always excellent. We drive from Bristol to Pigeon Forge six to eight times a year to eat there. We usually eat at Corky's twice while we are in town. It is the best BBQ we... More

Some folks like the ribs with the dry rub. I like the "wet" BBQ ribs. Corky's offers both! We ordered the lunch special, which included a 1/2 rack of ribs, and we were quite full when we left. The smoked chicken breast was quite tasty, too. I'm always a little surprised when someone tells me that hush puppies are a... More

We've always loved Corky's and still do, but if you have a tender pallet for spices, they went overboard on the jalapeños on our last visit.

The hostess was very nice. Our server had absolutely no personality. She also never checked backed after our meals arrived to see if we needed anything. After she gave us our meals, we didn't see her again until she dropped our check. Now the food. In Tennessee, BBQ is very abundant. We have lived here for 7 years. Corky's charges... More

While staying at a cabin in Pigeon Forge recently, I wanted to get something that could be taken back to the cabin and eaten family style. Thankfully, I remembered they have a Corky's. We used to have one in Murfreesboro and always have loved going to the original in Memphis. So I wanted to go there and I was not... More

The brisket was tender, good homemade potato salad, good macaroni and cheese. BBQ sauce in hot, honey and apple flavors is sold for $5 a bottle.
