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. From pulled pork to ribs to slaw... More

Since I recently started working in the area I've tried a couple times and have not been impressed at all. First time I called ahead and ordered the fried catfish since I know it takes a while, they said 10 minutes. Got there 20 minutes later and still wasn't finished with my order! Once I finally got it, it was... More

Corky's is an excellent place to go for bbq, baked beans, coleslaw and their great rolls. The pecan pie is one of the best ever. Not any more expensive that any other mid-range restaurants.

I've been to the Corky's in Memphis on Poplar twice in the past. Though the food at this location was good, it did not match my expectations that I had formed from my two visits to the Memphis location. There was more parking and a shorter wait, but... well... I had the ribs and while I enjoyed them, they were... More
