This was the best table service I ever experienced in a BBQ restaurant. Courteous, attentive, but not afraid to show a little Memphis attitude! We had a rack of ribs set for two and asked for half wet/half rub ribs. It was just enough for my wife and me! The server brought us hot rolls and butter with our drink order. The cole slaw was well prepared and didn't taste like it had been scooped out of a big bucket from Sam's. The potato salad was made from twice-baked spuds and had a great flavor to them. The BBQ beans were delicious.

The ribs were outstanding! Meat was falling off the bones. Not sure how they got them on the plate before they disassembled themselves. The rub was very flavorful and almost a little aggressive, but very enjoyable. I tried one of the wet ribs and it was equally as tasty.

We regretted not having enough room for banana pudding, but the ribs and sides were quite filling.

If you are hungry for ribs, you can't go wrong with Corky's!

When you go to Memphis, you want bbq, and Corky's is a good place to get it Memphis-style. Definitely recommended. Memphis-style is dry-rub. And remember that the bbq sandwiches will have coleslaw unless you ask not to have it.
