everything at Corky's if wonderful. The Bar-b-q is special and the sandwich is huge. The ribs are the best. But, you must have the onion ring loaf. Very unique food. And the catfish was just reviewed by the Memphis newspaper as one of the best in Memphis.

We picked up an order of take-out food at the recommendation of the desk clerk at our hotel. We opted to split a salad and pork dinner plate. There was plenty of food for both of us.

The salad and sides were exceptionally good as was the service and cleanliness! We ordered the wet rack of ribs to share which was abundant for two, but what should have been "wet" came out pretty dry. The outer skin was inedible for me. The texture was consistent with that of beef jerky and after trying to chew through the... More

My husband and I live in Memphis and this is our favorite BBQ joint. To be honest, lots of folks in town prefer other BBQ spots but I don't know why. The service is always excellent and quick.
