It was good bbq at reasonable prices. There weren't a lot of people there when we went, so that may have had a little to do with it, but service was old. Bringing refills before we needed them.

Corky's has a good baked and house salad lunch BUT avoid ordering the overpriced ($5) burned pecan pie. I have included a picture of the actual pie they served me and an picture example of what pecan pie normally looks like.More

Hello Mary I absolutely agree with your comment on the pie. I checked them this morning and felt like they had been in the oven a little long. Please give me a call when you have time. We are making some fresh ones right now!...More

While the BBQ ribs were average, the service and sides made the visit worthwhile. Ribs were tender, but not meaty. Coleslaw and fried okra were quite good. This location was close to our lodging and probably would not return.More

Good BBQ - had the ribs and chicken combo, with collard greens and baked beans. All cooked right, nice smoked flavor on meats, greens were great, and had bacon and onions in them. Will go there again if back on business trip.

We stopped for dinner on a Friday evening. The food was great and very generous portions. Staff was friendly and the live music was nice. The cleanliness could have been a little better. Overall nice place to stop.
