"My desire is to serve a few people the best they ever had." – Raymond Robinson, owner

Cozy Corner is old-school and serves some of the best barbecue in Memphis. Their barbecue is cooked on a Chicago-style smoker meaning the coals are placed further from the grill. The meat is placed on the lowest rack then progresses upward until it is smoked to perfection and ready to serve. The menu gives you a wide range of choices from smoked bologna sandwiches with slaw and sauce to petite Cornish game hens to sweet, tangy barbecue ribs – and they are all superb.

This joint is pretty nondescript with its plain building and common furnishings but the food is anything but average. Top it all off with a slice of their sweet potato pie or some of their creamy homemade banana pudding.
