I'll start out by saying I generally don't like dry rub ribs (ribs without sauce and/or ribs that come with sauce on the side). However, Cozy Corner won me over! The place is not fancy (and in a transitioning area) but one look at the parking lot will tell you EVERYONE loves these ribs (cars range from Lexus to old beaters). I could have eaten here every night. The dry rub was flavorful without being overpowering. The ribs were incredibly tender. And don't leave without getting some home made banana pudding (or get it to go if you can't eat one more bite). Miss Beverly, the owner, co-founded this place with her late husband and now all her kids work there too (but she won't let her family work there full time unless they go to college first; you have to like that!). She explained that they will ship the ribs anywhere; and we may have to follow up on that!

I went to cozy corner per the suggestion of a local business owner, and was not disappointed. To start, it was the best BBQ I have ever had! No complaints in terms of food and service, everything was perfect! Highly recommended!

This place has zero "curb appeal". But once you get past that and start eating you'll forget all about how it looks. Fantastic ribs with a very unique flavor. Cornish hen is great but tough to eat neatly - maybe take that home with you. Even the beans and slaw get special mention. They are not just an afterthought here. Don't eat the sweet potato pie first. It's so good that you won't want to eat anything else, maybe ever. Service is very friendly and attentive. Do yourself a favor and go get some ribs.

Cozy corner has the most special BBQ ribs you will find. They are tender, juicy and full of meat. The staff is very friendly and the service is fast although most of the times the place is packed.

Love the dive atmosphere - great authentic vibe and wonderfully sweet staff! The ribs were some of the best I've had (and I'm from Austin, Tx!) sweet potato pie was incredible and the sweet tea was like candy! I hope to stop here next time I'm driving through Memphis!
