Great Memphis BBQ! The pulled pork and BBQ chicken are great! Usual BBQ sides - beans and slaw. Yummy rolls.

Haven't been back in years. They got to big and the quality of the food dropped. We go to another restaurant for our Bar BQ fix now.

This is hands down the best bbq in collierville. The wait staff is nice it has a wide variety of appetizers and entrees on the menu. This is a kid friendly place but also features a bar with sports channels. Would recommend to anyone in the area

This was a great experience! The sausage and cheese appetizer was awesome!! Ribs were great and my wife loved the loaded baked potato with pulled pork. Their apple BBQ sauce is the bomb!!

Stopped in to Corky's for lunch and had the dry style barbecue ribs. They were fantastic! The server I hope was new ( seemed to be a little overwhelmed). However our meal was worth the wait!

When I go to Corky's Collierville, I usually get the Barbaque Natchos and I rate the 20 out of 10. Best Barbaque and food compared to most Restaurants.

When in Memphis, do as Elvis did. Go there or get it delivered via FedEx. Yes, FedEx delivers Corky's worldwide, if that's a clue as to its popularity. But is it really that good? Judge for yourself. Their pork ribs and pulled pork are tender and juicy -- and that's what you came here for. (If you want beef ribs... More

This is one of my top five go to places to eat barbecue in Memphis. You can order the ribs either wet or dry. I prefer them wet but the dry ones are also very tasty. I highly recommend the onion loaf onion rings to go along with your meal.

This place has been around a LONG time and that doesn't happen without doing something right. What Corky's does right is pork BBQ. Eating here is a Memphis tradition, especially for those of us who don't live near Memphis anymore. When we are in town we almost always include a meal from Corky's.
