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

We walked in and they were going to close in 30 minutes, but very welcoming. We had great service and the food was good. Loved the macaroni and cheese. Good prices. Will go back if in the area.

The barbecue is bland tasting at best. The meat is very dry and has no seasoning. The seasoned fries are good and the sweet is very good.

This place had great BBQ and sides! We had the pork shoulder, ribs, and turkey. It was PLENTY to split with 2 or 3 people. The Cole slaw and beans were WONDERFUL!

Very good service and much quieter than the one right in Memphis. Food very good - although the potato could have been a bit more done.

Friends come to town just to get Corky's! We have so much BBQ to offer in Memphis, but in my opinion, nothing beats Corky's in taste and service. Their nachos are the best. It's easy to decide at the last minute and run through the drive-thru and pick up dinner or go inside with your family. Even the chicken tenders... More
