I love the endless salad and they even have Michelob on tap which I also love. The waiter was Johnny on the spot and paid attention to detail.

Corky's is the best BBQ in Memphis bar none. The Cordova location is very nice and clean. The staff seems really well trained too. Loved the experience.

And all the trimmings. Corky's has perfected the art of restaurant BBQ for the masses. You would think you were in someone's back yard at a picnic table watching the host battle the smoke from the grill. What a great place to take the family or for a business lunch. The ribs are fantastic, moist, meaty, savory. The pulled BBQ... More

I have been going to Corky's Bar-b-q for a few years. The one on Poplar and Germantown Pkwy. I have all ways been pleased with the service and quality of the food. But the last two times I pickup my order at the Germantown location the rib were very fatty and the sandwich I ordered was very dry. If we... More

I have visited Corky's on more than one occasion and I have never been disappointed. Whether eating a BBQ pork sandwich or ribs they are all a hit!

I've never actually ate on location at Corkys but I've had their food at several parties that corkys catered. So I can say the barBQ is good. Tasty

One of the best purveyors of Memphis Barbeque. Its popularity is demonstrated by the multiple locations in the city of Memphis as well as the Christmas time shipments of ribs all over the world via FedEx. One of the must-visit restaurants in an authenitic Memphis experience.

The food wasn't bad, but I was expecting more. I had seen many reviews and was excited to go here but I was just slightly disappointed in the taste and presentation of our food.

I dined last PM at Corky's off Germantown Rd probably for the 10-12th time. It is predictable and consistenty good BBQ as are the beans and slaw, which are a little on the sweet side, but OK; the rolls are also excellent. Our food arrived very quickly, but it was a slow night; the check took longer. I didn't have... More
