“Not bad”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2014 via mobile

Came in with a groups of ten. Food all came out correct and they split the check for us.

Food was great but I don't think it was smoked in house. Kind if dry, still good but dry.

Would we go back? We would probably try somewhere else first but if we were right there then yes!!

“Loved the ribs!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2014

We had been wanting to try these ribs for a long time. You never know what you will get! I was very pleased with the entire meal. The ribs and wings had great flavor and were falling off the bone. The coleslaw was also very good!!

“Drive thru experience”

Well its not fast food so you have to wait a little bit. But over all pretty good and a decent smoky flavor. The fries and Cole slaw is good as well.

“Great atmosphere and good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2014

Overall the food was good and the staff was friendly, even offered us to-go drinks. I should have gotten a bigger sandwich to feel fuller. Still had a good Smokey flavor. Had a good home made sauce.

“Great BBQ!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2014 via mobile

Hey trip advisor readers, this is Mark & Becky with a review for Corky's barbecue.

We visited Corky's on Monday June 2nd around 7pm. We had a good parking spot right by the door and were promptly seated and received our drinks right away.
We both ordered the beef brisket sandwich with fries and fried okra, we requested the sauce on the side instead of on the sandwich so that we could sample all four sauces instead of the regular house BBQ sauce.
Our awesome server Stephanie brought us out 4 different sauces, the regular house BBQ, Honey, Hot and Apple.
The cole slaw was delicious, the seasoned fries were excellent and the fried okra was crispy on the outside but tender on the inside.

Out of the four sauces we couldn't decide between the Honey and house BBQ so we mixed them and had the best of both worlds.

Corky's serves up a mean Memphis style BBQ, we like being able to order our sandwich without the sauce, we could really taste the smokiness of the perfectly prepared brisket.

The restrooms were in need of some repairs and updating but we've seen worse.
The decor was pretty nice and the staff friendly. Our only complaint was a family with misbehaved toddlers that were screaming and crying without the parents attending to them, this went on for about twenty minutes before the parents got the hint from other customers.

Overall we will be visiting them again in the future, we hated that they closed the Gatlinburg location on the creek.
