1. Pick Up At Corky's

Specializing in BBQ, Picnics, and Casual Events. We prepare everything in our custom built Southern Pride Smoker, which can hold up to 700 pounds of mouthwatering, tender barbecue, or choose from a wide array of pizzas and Bistro Menu items. We supply all of the disposable chafing dishes to keep your food warm, so there is no need to return a thing.

The food was AMAZING! We knew it would be after dining at Corky's for lunch one afternoon. We didn't even schedule a formal tasting because we trusted the food would be excellent! We wouldn't have changed a thing! Everything tasted wonderful and we received so many compliments on the smoked pulled pork–YUMMY!!!
