BBQ sauce is the best! Great fried pickles and fried green tomatoes. Ate here years ago and the kids asked for it again. We don't get this kind of southern cooking where we live.

Had the couples ribs with 4 sides. The ribs were tasteless and fatty. The mac & cheese was mushy, the BBQ beans, and green beans were acceptable. The spiced apple was good although heavy on cinammon.

Trip Advisor said restaurant is open but when we pulled into parking lot restaurant is closed. Maybe that is why no reviews in a while. Bummed because we wanted BBQ.

My husband and I visited Corky's while visiting in Brentwood. Our hotel had a pamphlet with a coupon so we decided to give it a try! The service was excellent, everyone greated us with a smile. Unfortunately they had run out of ribs. My husband had the pulled chicken sandwich, which was good! I had the Tennessee two step combo... More

The barbecue is my favorite. And they have so many sides. The fried corn on the cob on a stick is so good. It evokes long ago memories of good stuff on a stick at the state fair. All the other sides are great, too. You can take home a family pack and nosh at home. Love Corky's!

Tried this place on recommendation of staff at hotel. Good size menu, we had salad, pull pork sandwiches and a rib/brisket meal. All food was very good, served fast, ribs very good for me I liked the wet ribs better. Ribs very good! Brisket was dry but might have been mine. Nice flavors. Sides were good. Give them a try.

After reading many reviews about Corky's, we decided to visit this location for some Southern BBQ-and we were not disappointed! Food was fantastic-great prices-service was excellent (a huge thank you to Jamal) - this place needs to be on your list of places to visit! Call ahead and ask which nights have live music.

Corky's has some of the best pulled pork sandwiches in the Nashville area. Good fresh meat well prepared for a delicate palette.

Thank Houston N
