Why Corky’s

Our History

Family owned and operated, Corky’s is the home of the world’s finest hickory-smoked Ribs and Memphis-style BBQ in the heart of the Smoky Mountains! From Graceland to Dollywood, Corky’s is the best BBQ throughout the state of Tennessee. Our BBQ is smoked onsite at our Pigeon Forge location for up to 15 hours, and then finished with our signature sauces or dry rub!

We’re more than just BBQ, too — check out our popular menu items that include catfish, burgers, salads, and chicken tenders along with our made-from-scratch Southern-style sides and local craft beers or soft drinks. We also have kids meals, take out specials, and plenty of space for your family. You can join us in our nostalgic dining room, take it to go, or head to our drive-thru for quick service.

Corky’s is the place for the best BBQ in the Smokies!

Looking for catering? We’ve got you covered with multiple menu options and the ability to create a catering plan that fits your needs and budget for your office parties, picnics, and weddings.
