We were driving through the area and decided to try Memphis BBQ. We ordered a half rack of ribs with half dry rub and half wet sauce. I preferred the wet. The BBQ beans were fantastic and the Cole slaw was good. However, I prefer...a sweeter slaw. The homemade rolls were delicious. Our server Grace, was bubbly, friendly and efficient. I highly recommend this restaurantMore

Excellent service but the sandwiches were small. The server was very attentive and made sure we had everything we asked for. The BBQ sauce was really the best I’ve had in a long time.

We were visiting from Dallas, TX. Reviews looked good online, but once we got to this location, the dining room was closed due to construction, but the drive thru was open. Our food was warm, but lacked flavor. The potato salad was bland, and the...macaroni and cheese wasn't very good. The brisket wasn't that great, and the ribs were very fatty. Will not be visiting this location again. It appears that this is a chain BBQ restaurant. Not impressed.More

In town on business. Wanted to try a Memphis style pulled pork sandwich and some ribs. They have a drive thru, which is very novel! I ordered, paid, and found a nice parking spot to quickly eat my lunch. First thing I noticed was no...napkins. Bbq without napkins, really. So I pulled around to walk in and get some. Waited 5 min for a hostess (only 1), to ask for napkins. Get back in the car, and start to dig in. Pulled pork sandwich (good) wrapper was covered in sauce. So I keep digging. Where are my ribs?? No ribs. By now, I told myself I was definitely going to write a review. The pork sandwich was good. My fries were like warm, probably from waiting inside for napkins. Either way, I find it hard to believe Corey’s is ranked this high…More

We were greeted at the door by a very friendly fella. Our waiter, Jaylen, was awesome (even though every beer we asked about wasn’t available 😉). He was friendly, courteous and offered some good recommendations. He thanked us for coming in!!! Wow, very few in...the hospitality business do that anymore. Thanks for a great experience, Jaylen. The BBQ was outstanding. We had the 4 meats + 4 sides meal. Looking forward to our leftovers for lunch. Oh, almost forgot…their dinner rolls…WOWZA!More

Wife and I passed through Memphis. Naturally, we wanted to try the bbq. This place had great reviews and seemed easily accessible from the interstate so we wheeled in. The server and host were awesome. The food, however, was very mediocre. I got a rib...plate and my wife had a pulled pork sandwich. The ribs were average (like something you would find at a gas station in south Louisiana) and ditto for the pulled pork sandwich. Maybe it was an anomaly, but I just wasn’t impressed. But kudos to the staff!More

I was in Memphis in 2001 for a business meeting, the host ordered lunch in, it was from Corky's, I though it was good so when we passed through Memphis and it was close to the our hotel I though we would try it again....We were seated fast, server was good, BBQ was good to me? I had the ribs and pork combo. Baked beans were good, pecan pie for desert was good. Place is ware, could use a refresh.More

My friend and I split the half rack of ribs with a piece of chicken and two sides. It was more than enough food for two people. Meat was tender and seasoned well - sides were okay. Rolls were good! Later, a local told me...that there were better BBQ places in Memphis and I’m sure he’s right but this one wasn’t bad.More

Stopped at Corky’s BBQ while passing through Memphis. The food was just okay. The wait staff was uninterested, had to get their attention to get anything. Asked about the special Corky’s beer - they were out of it. Asked about BBQ sauce as a gift...- they were out of it. Sure wished I had gone to another restaurant. Can’t recommend.More

We ordered wing (smoked) came out with our meals. Ordered a salad which they tried to bring me 15 mins after meal and appetizers served. Canceled salad and still got charged for it. Waitress was unapologetic. Manager walked away from us basically stating that’s how...it goes. Very disappointed with the whole experience, since we were from out of town and looked forward to good BBQ. 😢More
