We always stop at Corky's when we are in the Memphis area. The sauce is not too sweet and the meat is never dry. The coleslaw is not our favorite, but the beans are always a hit. Everyone goes back for 2nds and 3rds.

Without question, the best barbecue in Memphis is Corky's. I'm a local & Corky's is my personal favorite. I can assure you it won't disappoint on any item on the menu from the incredible tender ribs to pulled pork sandwiches. Their sauce is delish, the beans are incredible, & portions are generous. Exceptional value for your money. I have eaten in their Cordova Restaurant many times, parking is easy & service is excellent. Food is consistently superb, whether you order take-out or dine in.

An added bonus, I have ordered from their web site for out-of-town friends gifts and have eaten food that was shipped from Corkys. It is always perfect & their food just can't be beat no matter how you eat it. The food is shipped quickly, packaged perfectly, and there is no doubt you will be more than pleased. Hope you give Corky's a try "in person" if you are in the City. They never disappoint & the food is consistently fabulous! Hands-down, Corky's is the very best in Memphis, the barbeque capital!

We've been rating bbq from 1 (bad) to 10 (excellent) on this bbq eating vaca, both Central and Corky's got 10s, the fist time in 7 bbq reviews. Corky's has both dry and wet ribs and we tried them both and found them the best Memphis has to offer. If only we could find this quality of bbq in AZ!

Best of the Corkey's in Memphis. Easynto get in and out of. We got the rack for two, and were stuffed. Pulled on a bone and it slides right out.
