Great BBQ and even better service.

My fiancee and I were in Pigeon Forge for a long weekend (1/21-1/24) and it just so happened to be a terrible weather weekend. Due to the weather, most places were closing early and Corky's was no exception. When we walked in, we asked when they were going to close and the hostess said they were... read more

What a pleasant surprise. The servers and manager were very nice and accommodating, while the BBQ ribs and chicken were great! I thought it would be more of a chain style place- I was wrong. I loved it!

Great food served quickly at reasonable prices. The drive thru special was 2 barbecue pork sandwiches, two bags of chips and two drinks for only $10. Family meals are available starting at a little more than $20. The barbecue is tender, tasty and fixed just right. Restaurant staff are friendly and helpful. Highly recommend!

Always great food and service. We prefer to go for lunch specials. We go about five times a year when we go to Pigeon Forge or Gatlinburg. The quality is always consistent.

I wish I had reviewed this place any of the first several visits. Lately the service and the food has become very hit or miss. The entire Pigeon Forge area seems to be having a very hard time with the quality of their Internationals. Those students make up a tremendous part of the labor market. When their quality goes way...

Our family visits Pigeon Forge every year and we always make a stop for lunch or dinner at Corky's BBQ. Their sauce is so good that we even bring back a couple bottles so we can enjoy it at home. Our meals had generous portions and the prices were typical of most restaurants in the area. Their pulled pork is... More

I have been to Corky's in Pigeon Forge. I went again last week and was not disappointed. I have never had a bad meal there and this time was no different. Now you have to know that my wife and I never eat at BBQ places at home, We only hit BBQ places while traveling. I cook/smoke my own meat... More
