“Best BBQ food I've EVER had”
Reviewed July 2, 2014

I love this place! They have the best BBQ Food ever (and I'm not even a huge fan of BBQ Food). Ivisit Memphis usually once or twice a year and I always go to Corky's once or twice. The first time I went there there was a long line (I think we waited for about 45-60 min before we got seated), but it was definetely worth the wait.

“Trust me. I'm a local”
Reviewed July 1, 2014 via mobile

This is one of the few tourist traps I visit over and over again. There's no doubt that Corky's is known for producing volume. Their business model is to get people in and get people out. I don't even think they smoke their meats on location.

The truth is, it doesn't matter. The food is great and it's one of the city's top BBQ. I prefer Corky's over rendezvous any day. Get the ribs. They fall off the bone every time.

“One of he best”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

Every time we go through Memphis, we try to stop at Corky's BBQ. The very first time we decided to go there we felt if we showed up around 3;00 pm we would have no wait. Wrong! However, it told us we have found the right place. We are never disappointed.

“Great BBQ”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

Corky's is just about the best pork BBQ you can find in Memphis. It's a fun place to eat and all the food -- pulled pork, ribs, and especially the hot rolls are incredible. My favorite is the "wet ribs." The service is warm anf friendly. If you are really hungy, come early. Sometimes you have to wait a while for a table.
