BBQ & RIBS
The Corky's Story
Corky's was a pioneer in shipping food. In 1987, being able to ship a local cuisine across the country was not very common. Due to so many requests from out of towners visiting the restaurant wanting to share their experience with others, Corky's started cooking ribs and pulled pork to ship overnight to friends, business associates, and native Memphians that moved away and missed our famous BBQ.
In 1990 Corky's franchises started to open in other cities around the south. You can still find Corky's restaurants outside of the Memphis area in Brentwood and Pigeon Forge, Tennessee and two locations in Little Rock, Arkansas. Local customers in Memphis wanted to be able to purchase their favorite bbq in the grocery so Corky's started cooking ribs, pulled pork and bottling our award winning bbq sauce for local grocery stores in our new USDA cooking facility next to the original restaurant on Poplar Ave.
