Food was very good. We tried a variety of things. Place is a little small so get there early. The bbq sauce is incredible. We had: Cornish hen, ribs, chicken wings, smoked bologna, bbq spaghetti, slaw, & beans My favorite was the Cornish hen and ribs.

I wasn't really sure if this was an eat-in restaurant (it was) but we decided to stop and I have to give two thumbs up for some pretty amazing bbq. I had the chopped brisket sandwich and it was juicy. I had to eat the sandwich with a fork as the juice had soaked into the bread but I devoured... More

Ribs and smoked beef sausage was awesome! Nice pull apart ribs. My wife had the sliced pork sandwich and it was good as well.

So delighted to find myself back in this city after 35 years and to locate food near one of my favorite charities, St. Jude's Children's Hospital. We were just passing through and knew we just had to do barbecue in Memphis. We wanted someplace near I-40, quick and easy. This place fit that pork rib blues. As my road-trip companion... More

Our visited here will be an unforgettable one. The BBQ ribs are unbelievable. Very tasty and tender, can't miss it. The owners are very friendly. As a result of this experience we'll have a good excuse to come back to Memphis soon!

We stopped into Cozy Corner on the recommendation of our hotel concierge, and were so pleasantly surprised! It looks pretty sketchy from the outside but lo is are definitely deceiving. The spicy BBQ Cornish hen and banana pudding are a must. Also, don't be afraid of the BBQ spaghetti...it's a great combination!

Hands down the best BBQ in Memphis. Very small place with really nice folks working. Order at the counter and pick your own seat. I highly recommend the wings and rib combo with a side of BBQ spaghetti. Outstanding!! Good folks making great BBQ. I will stop here every time I'm in Memphis.

This is the real deal: real, down home, Memphis BBQ. If you want authentic, high quality Memphis BBQ that doesn't sit on its heels and live on its glory, this is the place. It was messy, but it is supposed to be that way. My kids (generally fussy) really liked it too. If you ever get concerned that some of... More
