Great lunch and place to meet friends for lunch. We had live entertainment and great service. The dry ribs are our favorite, and the sauces are varied.

You have to try this place. I had brisket and my wife had the pulled pork. Both were amazing! Great Tennessee bbq, sweet tea was perfect.

I am a BBQ snob and the food missed the mark. Pulled pork was dry and the ribs had no flavor. Hopefully they can get a new pit master.

We ordered a slab of ribs for 2 plus sides: voles law, mac n cheese and collards. Our friends ordered full slab and the king ultimate combo. Drink: pale ale and unsweetened iced tea. We came at 6:30 and service was very slow. Food was ok. Our ribs were satisfactory but our friends chicken and pulled pork on the King... More

Corky's Bar-B-Q has awesome food! After trying many BBQ places, Corky's is one of the best for smoked BBQ. Sauce is a perfect balance and

The service is fast and friendly! The food is excellent and the prices are very affordable. I had the dinner for 2 with my cousin. A full slab, 4 sides with your choice of bread for $26.

We frequented Corky's in Memphis when we lived there and considered it a 10/10 for barbeques. This Brentwood Corky's is just as good, and the service is superb too. If you like Memphis pork bar-b-que, you will love Corky's Brentwood. We especially like their pulled pork sandwiches, in addition to their ribs. Take some sauce home too

They're ribs are outstanding. The deep fried corn is AMAZING. (I am surprised it came as a free side for how good it is). The collar green is good (great with the Tabasco vinegar sauce my waitress have me on the side). Angela also told me her personal favorite sauce mix (smoking how mixed with apple sauce on the side...
