We looked online for bbq, remembered visits to Memphis area bbq places, then, we phoned a friend living in Memphis. We are glad we did!!

Corky's ribs were the best we ever had. The sauce was excellent, as were the sides we ordered.

Cannot wait to get back to Memphis!!! Our friend said he had a place he likes better--- that would be difficult!!!!

Passing through town from West Texas and decided to stop in. Very glad we did. BBQ was amazing and very delicious. Never tried apple BBQ sauce but this stuff is genius and amazing. Waitress was very friendly and let us experience the Memphis culture. Atmosphere overall was quite a great experience. Hope to stop back in sometime.

This was my second time to visit Corky's. The first time was on a trip to Memphis about twenty years ago, and they definitely have not lost their touch. The dry rub ribs were falling off the bone and mighty tasty. I had the small portion, and there was so much food I had too save half for later. Don't miss this place on your next visit.

I had the pork nachos. Husband had the big man plate. He couldn't finish it, and is adamant about going back during our short Memphis stay. I have to agree with him.

My nachos were to die for.

The wait to be seated (about 45 minutes) was WELL worth the wait. Once seated, we were served quickly. A little too quickly, but we understood as there were many people needing to be seated. Our waiter was VERY friendly and came back a few times to make sure there wasn't anything else he could bring us.

Get the dry rub while you're there!!

The food was great the wait for a table was about 50 minutes so we decided to hop in our car and roll through the drive thru .mThe line of cars was long but we got our food in about 10-12 minutes. We were back at the hotel lounge and done eating before we would have even been served inside. The kids thanked us :-).
