Good Food, not so good location – I agree with tochtli83 after the parking lot. I believe if the building was further back and the bushes at the front were removed getting out with probably be easier. They really need to make the exit more level. The food is good I always get the pork sandwich and barbeque corn its the best.
Good food. I've never eaten in, so I can't speak to service. But the drive-through is fine.
Pork is tender and tasty, and the sauce is really good: not otherworldly, but good.
Just a caution about the drive-through and the general location of the place. Trying to get out of the parking lot is quite challenging, especially if you drive stick. You have to drive up a hill that doesn't plateau before you can see the oncoming traffic: which is heavy most of the time. Be CAREFUL.
Best BBQ in town!!! – I absolutely love this place. I eat there several times a month and would do so more if it was closer. Best ribs in town and my wife loves the smoked turkey. Only place that I have seen that serves collard green and their unique style of potato salad. Place has great oldies music playing and the staff is very friendly. I always have a manager stop by and say hello when I'm there. Nice to go to a place where you always feel like a "local".
Don't get it to go – Good barbeque, in general. But don't get it to go. I got a side of fried ocra. They packaged it in a plastic container sealed with a lid. Guess what I got when I got home...Mushy ocra in mushy crust. It was really disgusting. They've been around for years, so I'm really suprised that they haven't figured this problem out before. I called the store and spoke with the manager, Dale, and he said that he's never had a complaint about that before and they always package the ocra that way. Well, I'm guessing that no one else wanted to take the time to complain that their ocra was mush. But, I'm not in the business of throwing money away and when I order a side, I expect to get what I paid for.
Not impressed – BBQ sandwich and fries for like $9, not worth the price. Terrible service, the place was not very busy and still had a bad waitress. Wouldn't go back.
decent food at decent prices – we've struggled to find "the best bbq" in nashville for some time. im not sure corky's is it. but they are consistent, the food's not bad, and is reasonably priced. their ribs are quite good, pork is tasty, their "homemade" sauces range from sweet to damn-hot and they have a great beer special which is too cheap to turn down. kids menu is plentiful (includes ribs!) and the atmosphere, while somewhat unoriginal chain restaurant-y looking, is family friendly. we'll go back when wondering where to eat ribs, until we find some place better...
Suburbanites dig into platters of pork at this laid-back barbecue joint. – In Short
A franchise of the famous Corky's in Memphis, this barn-style barbecue joint attempts to bring a little piece of Beale Street to Brentwood. The cool, dark interior doesn't sport a bar, but booths are usually filled with folks nursing beers and listening to piped-in blues. Families congregate at larger tables to enjoy dinners with all the trimmings. The menu offers barbecue in its many forms, from pulled pork to shrimp on a stick.
Best BBQ in town!! – Smoky, tender delicious ribs and cheap beer - HEAVEN!! They smoke all of there meat on-site with hickory fired pits - not commisary or corporate. Sauce is great also. Most other Nashville BBQ seems to be using vinegar sauce - yuk! I like the actual food better here in Nashville than the original in Memphis. Memphis has a better ambience, "energy" and lots more grime - but the food is better here in Nashville.
I bring all out of towners to Corky's and they rave about the quality and flavor. Can't get BBQ like this up north.
I ordered their party pack for 4TH of July party and it was awesome. I had huge portions and thought I'd over ordered, but my guests couldn't stop eating it. HUGE success! I think I just started a tradition.
Go try for yourself. Forget the hype and TASTE THE FOOD!! You wont regret.
Great ribs – I love their dry ribs. They are the best I have ever had.
Memphis is better – For those who don't like the franchise in the Nashville area, make the drive to Memphis and have the original. Much better. But while you're there, try The Rendezvous. THAT'S far and away the best BBQ I've ever had anywhere in the U.S.A.
