Originally launched in Memphis, Tennessee, in 1984, the eatery expanded to Katy in early February and also has plans to open in Cypress, The Woodlands and downtown Houston in the coming months.
“Texans love barbecue all the way around, and we wanted to give them something different to try,” Cain said.
The menu features traditional pulled pork sandwiches, pork ribs, brisket, catfish, fried chicken, barbecue nachos, spaghetti, baked beans, loaded macaroni and cheese, fried okra and other Memphis-inspired dishes. Desserts include peach cobbler, banana pudding, pecan pie, key lime pie and chocolate fudge pie with ice cream.
Cain said the restaurant also features catering services, live music, a full bar and a special late-night menu starting after 9 p.m. www.corkysbbq.com
