I read the reviews so my husband and I decided to visit and have dinner. The outside of the restaurant was unappealing and the neighborhood was a little concerning. We debated if we should leave or not but went inside anyway. The food was just...More

The ribs were VERY good! We ordered our meals then went back and ordered another plate of ribs. They were tender and seasoned just right with the right amount of smoke. We got BBQ beans and potato salad which were also delish.

After visiting a few top rated BBQ restaurants, this was a disappoint. Four family members all agreed that it was average at best. The folks were kind and the place was clean. The outside is junky.

Went here because it had 4.5 stars out of 5. Worst mistake. The meat was very tender, but it was bland. Seems like no seasonings were used at all to flavor the rib tips. Ordered the spicy sauce and it had no taste at all.

On a two-day stop in Memphis over Thanksgiving, we were looking for a good barbecue joint that wasn't touristy nonsense. A guy recommended Cozy Corner--told us to ignore the exterior and the neighborhood, and just focus on the food. Good advice. The place looks a...More
