Does not compare to the Memphis original Corky's in quality, portions or service. While staff was pleasant the overall layout and backward entrance was confusing. food quality was not as expected compared to other locations of the chain.

Consistent barbecue; good service. Prices are much better than the trendier places. There's a reason why Corkys has been around for so long.

The original Corky's located in Memphis, TN is great. The one in Brentwood is not even in the same running. It's nothing special. Go to Judge Bean's BBQ down the road instead

Enjoy the atmosphere! Great bar-b-que and ribs (both wet & dry). Service could be stepped up some but all in all it was OK. Good value for food and cost.

My dining experience was all right but I will not go back... I found it too greasy and not enough taste in their bbq.

We ordered the fried pickles as an appetizer and they were very good, had the dry ribs which were excellent. Also tried some of my sons gumbo which was also very good.

It has been a few years since we had visited Corky's. What I remembered were the ribs and the fried corn on the cob. My memories did not disappoint. The ribs were good. Not the best I have ever had but good nonetheless. The corn was excellent as usual. My wife enjoyed the chicken which was tender and tasty. Our... More

My son and I had a late lunch before catching a show at The Ryman Auditorium. The server was very attentive and knowledgeable of the menu. My son had the 1/2 rack ribs with one half sauced and the other half with dry rub. The ribs were moist, tender, and fell off the bone. I had the 1/2 chicken which... More
