Kathryn Rem: A la carte – Corky’s Ribs and BBQ closes
Published Sunday, March 16, 2008
CORKY S RIBS AND BBQ, 3458 Freedom Drive, closed last weekend because of financial problems that owner Barry Hickman attributed to the March 2006 tornadoes that mowed down much of the Parkway Pointe strip mall.
Our guest count feeds off the guest counts of the neighboring hotels, and when they closed for eight months (for repairs), we lost that business. We gave it some time after they reopened, but we never recovered. Corky s opened in July 2001.
