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.
Great dry ribs, sometimes too dry though.
I had great ribs. The meat fell right off the bone and the dry rub was really good. However, my co-worker ordered the same and his were way overdone, meat totally dried out. So, on the same day, same time, it just goes to show that consistancy is hard to achieve. If they were too dry the first time, tell them and try again. They definitely got my order right. Parking is scarce even on Mon night.
My husband and I were in Memphis touring their graduate school and we decided that since we were in Memphis we had to have bbq. I looked online for probably an hour trying to choose a restaurant. Finally we went with Corkys because it has good ratings and was close to our hotel. All I can say is WOW. I am a very slim woman and don't normally finish everything on my plate but I did that night. I even was drizzling bbq sauce on the rolls they brought us! The service was great and the ambience of the restuarant was very nice. Be prepared to wait a long time though especially if you are going on the weekends. It is well worth it though. Their pulled pork bbq sandwich was easily the best I've ever had!
OK, but overrated..
The sandwiches are good, not great, but this business about Corky's being the best in Memphis is a joke. They are the best marketed operation for sure, but the quality of their product doesn't measure up among true Memphis BBQ restaurants. The ribs aren't in the top 10.
Perfect wet ribs.
Wet ribs, dry ribs, bananna pudding....it's all excellent. Even the dinner rolls they bring you are great. Everything is good and nothing is bad. They're wet ribs are so good.....lets just say that my fingers have never tasted this good. The meat just fell right off the bone. They even have the dry rub for the ribs and yes those were good too. Parking lacks quite a bit to be desired. Had to wait awhile to get seated but no more than any other place.
