Success! Thanks for posting your review of Corky's Bar-B-Q. You’ve done the world some good today.


Being new to Memphis we hadn't heard on Corky's so with a unbiased view when we ate lunch. It's delicious. I don't like dry ribs but dang! I did half wet and half dry. Their potato salad, coleslaw, and macaroni and cheese are fantastic!! Staff is super nice and I recommend that if you want to buy their sauces buy it there. we got all of them for a steal. Two for $4. At the stores they're for sale $6.99.
