yum

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.

Yum!

Everyone in the family enjoyed their meal. All three of the sauces are good. We tried the brisket, the ribs, and the pulled pork, and all were good. The coleslaw, beans, and rolls were good too. We would go back in a heartbeat.

Great BBQ, banana pudding and pecan pie!

Lots of great bbq in Memphis, but this is probably my favorite. Ribs were very good. But the banana pudding and pecan pie were excellent too. The one on Poplar is always crowded, but well worth the wait. Very friendly staff too.

Worth the trip

I grew up in Memphis and went into the military before Corky's had opened. I had not been back to Memphis for over 25 years and had decided if and when I went back I would give them a try. It won't be another 25 years before I return to Memphis, that much is certain. The service was fantastic, the ribs were perfect and the brisket was heavenly. My wife and I gorged out until we thought we were going to die. We then remembered looking over the deserts on the way in and just couldn't say no. We decided to split a piece of the pecan pie and life will never be the same. We have decide all future trips will have to pass through Memphis, one way or another.
