CORKY'S IN MEMPHIS IS BETTER – THE CORKY'S HERE JUST DOESN'T CAPTURE THE FLAVOR PROFILES, AMBIANCE OR SERVICE LIKE THE ORIGINAL ONE IN MEMPHIS.
NOT BAD BBQ FOR THESE PARTS THOUGH.
Great Bar-B-Q – This is the place you take visitors for BarBQ. The ribs, beef and pulled pork are all excellent and the sauce keeps you wanting to come back for more. I have tried both the wet and dry rub ribs and most partial to the wet ribs. Enjoy.
great dry rib, fatty wet ribs – The barbque as a whole is good. The dry ribs are awesome but could stand to be meatier. The wet ribs are just plain gross, the three times I have tried the wet, there was more fat than meat.
The beans are great, slaw great and service is wonderful.
Sweet smoke pit – Corky's Bar-B-Q is an excellent restaraunt if you love good bar-b-q and good cold beer. May I suggest that everyone try their all you can eat rib buffet on Monday nights or their all you can eat catfish on fridays.
Best ribs in town! – Corky's is the family favorite! Great food and nice atmosphere. Also Great for caterings!
Great marketing doesn't make great bar-q – Corky's is Production Line Bar-b-q, not bad, but not great.
Awesome dry-rub ribs! – Best dry-rub ribs I have had in a long time. The half-slab I ordered had a flavorful crisp crust on the outside and was falling-off-the-bone tender on the inside. Moist and unctuous, it was heaven to eat! Corky's signature sauce needs a little more punch to it, though; it was too mild, and I kept adding hot sauce (also kept at the table) to it. Terrific baked beans. Awesome french fries, the kind with a spicy, lightly battered exterior that I wish I knew how to make at home. Soft, pillowy rolls served with every meal. They make their own key-lime pie in the restaurant, and my husband said it was good. But don't miss out on the warm apple cobbler! A more-than-generous serving came heaped high in a huge bowl, topped with two scoops of creamy vanilla ice cream, whipped cream, and a cherry on top.
You have got to be kidding. – What in the world is this expensive corporate slop doing on anybody's top 10 list? Corky's has, in its favor, some really nice, thick sauce. However, the meat is sticky and bland like you'd find in a truck stop, tasting like it's been cooked in a pressure steamer and not in an open pit over wood. The decor is ambience-free upscale fern bar. The restaurant has no character and the food is overpriced and awful. This ranks among the worst pork I've ever had. Even Sonny's is better.
It's OK but not world class – I was told this was the best place to get BBQ and the ribs were to die for. I am from out of town and have seen many cities in my travels, tried many places to eat. Corky's gets only marginal rating from my take out meal. The cut of meat for the ribs was very good, lean and good flavor. The sauce was bland and lifeless. The order should have had two sides as ordered, got to the hotel room and only one was there. Slaw was OK nothing special. The bun was very good. I will try them again, but first take they are far down the BBQ list. Prices made this a reasonable buy though.
Great and tasty flavor – not overcooked, best BBQ pork I've eaten.
and I am from Tampa, FL....
