Food is always good, lots of energy, a bit of an assembly line for service and legacy waiters are alway abrupt (in the south, we call that rude). Just know what you're going in for & enjoy.

I visited here last weekend with my son and we had a great experience. I ordered a full rack of ribs with half wet and half dry. What a great combination. I really like the dry but getting both was a nice treat. My son got an order of beef brisket and we did a little sharing. His brisket was... More

My large group ate in the pre-reserved upstairs room. The choices were plentiful; the food was hot and the service was impeccable. All 41 in our group stated how delicious all of the food was. I would highly recommend this restaurant. The wait staff was both pleasant and efficient.

Had a combo plate that my husband and I shared. The waitress recommended the dry rub ribs, BBQ chicken and pulled pork. It was all very good. Had "loaded" potato salad and cole slaw. The potato salad was excellent and the cole slaw was the creamy kind that was excellent as well. Before the meal came, waitress brought out warm... More

Barbecue is very subjective, especially in Memphis. I really like Corky's dry rub rubs. They serve them up very good at this location. For the dry rub recipe I prefer corky's over rendezvous. The service is very good as well. Memphis has the best pork ribs money can buy it's just which of the many restaurants in town suites your... More

These were by far the best ribs I have ever eaten. The only thing I would change is the size of the sides, because they were the smallest sides I have ever seen anywhere I've eaten.

Went to Corky's for lunch based on a pleasant experience at a different Corky's venue a few years ago. Went on a Saturday for lunch and was told it would be a 10 minute wait. Over 30 minutes later and still not seated, we discussed finding a different place to eat. Several others not in our group did walk out.... More

I've found that all the Corky's in Memphis will have excellent bar-b-q, and the one in Cordova was no exception. My wife and in-laws stopped by before church and got, of course, 4 pork plates. One of their best dishes where you get a pile of pork and 2 sides. If you get a salad or an appetizer, you might... More
