Very good dry ribs, slaw is terrific! Hostess's seemed a little confused when checking guests in. We were seated in the given amount of time. Waiter was attentive and prompt with service.

Great BBQ, got the BBQ pork plate with Mac and cheese and green beans. All was very good, preceded by warm rolls. The house original BBQ sauce is very good as well. Others in party said ribs, both wet and dry were good. Worth a try.

We stopped by Corky's on our Annual Motorcycle Ride out west after a long morning of riding and got there right at noon- they were packed but the really friendly hostess took our name and we waited.

Haven't been back in years. They got to big and the quality of the food dropped. We go to another restaurant for our Bar BQ fix now.

This is hands down the best bbq in collierville. The wait staff is nice it has a wide variety of appetizers and entrees on the menu. This is a kid friendly place but also features a bar with sports channels. Would recommend to anyone in the area

Thank Jake T
