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.

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

This place was recommended to us as we traveled through on our way to Cincinnati from Austin, TX. If your from Texas you may be disappointed as we were. I guess we like Texas BBQ better. First of all they only serve beer, no wine. As I jokingly said to the waiter, "oh I just might have to leave if... More

We had ribs at the Poplar Corky's a few months earlier and they were mighty good. The ribs we got on this day were a HUGE disappointment.... More

It you like ribs, They've got you! I like a certain place in St. Louis but the wet ribs at Corky's was as good as I could think of that has great ribs. I got the wet ribs. If you like dry, go there. But I can tell you, what I got was Gooooood!

A quick stop at Corky's. The pork shoulder, beans and Cole slaw was excellent. One of the signature dinners. The bar had NBA NFL and the World series on TV. Great meal and service

I enjoy going to get my lunch, with pull chicken with beans and apple cobbler. Always hot and good. You can order from the bar or the drive thru window and get you order fast.
