We rolled in right close to 9pm after a long day of adventure in Gatlinburg, and to our shock the drive through was closed. Now it was Sunday, so it didn't surprise us too much, but the inside was still hopping with a half dozen tables still full with patrons eating. So I went in and saw the closed sign... More

Wonderful place to eat. The food is awesome. But, i have to say Suzzy was our waitress and she made us feel right at home with her great service and always smiling and took the time to make us feel welcome.

For me, barbecue has to be a triple-play experience: that perfect balance of pulled pork shoulder, chunky cole slaw, and sweet Memphis-style sauce. Corky's in Pigeon Forge--like the original we frequented for years in Memphis--hits it out of the park.

We had a party of 16. We thought we might have a hard time finding accommodation for such a large group. Corky's came thru without any disappointment. The service was fast and friendly. The BBQ was certainly worth the stop. Would do again when visiting Pigeon Forge, TN.

Wow was undecided where to eat, Been coming to this area for years and never have eaten at Corky's. Best decision ever, plenty of food and best fried pickles ever. Our waiter was one of the best. Great personality and made sure we had everything we needed.

We ate here as it was near out hotel. A great selection of food and neat environment. Service was good and our food arrived quickly. Brisket was very tender and the smoked chicken was amazing. I highly recommend.

We stopped in for a quick supper and got the Memphis Sampler (4 meats and 3 sides for $30.99). Food was great and really more than 2 people could eat. Thomas did a great job taking care of us. Will definitely be back.

Thank David P
