We came out of the forest later than intended and stopped at Corky's 30 minutes before closing. The entire staff was so welcoming and friendly. The food came out quickly and was freshly prepared. I highly recommend stopping in for a meal and one of their delicious milkshakes. My photo of the strawberry shortcake does not come close to doing it justice due to the lighting, but it was delicious.

Visiting from out of town and I had a burger craving and couldn’t have made a better choice! Order at the counter where you’re assigned a number, and then your food is brought out to your table. I went with a Corky’s burger and a basket of Cajun fries- chef’s kiss! Nice assortment of craft brews too. Small parking area but you can park next door after 5p and on weekends.

Excellent experience, very friendly and welcoming staff, place is clean and fun to look at. We had burgers and they were delicious. Onion rings are excellent! We liked the fries, too. Coleslaw was a bit more mayonnaise strong that I like but still good. Just personally I like it more on the vinegar side.We will definitely put this place on our list!Small constructive criticism, if I may:1. I would like to have ketchup bottle on the table instead of packets. And mustard.2. Burger baskets are a little too small for me to use, I would like them to be somewhat larger. It would be easier to cut them, since burgers are big.Overall, great experience! You should try it, too!

Excellent! Laid back environment. Friendly staff. Order at the counter then find a seat. They do the rest. Very helpful and accommodating with ordering. Many food options available. Not a long wait for food to be served.Food was flavorful and generous portion sizes. Prices really depend on what is ordered.$60 for ribs, bbq pork, chili cheese dog, big hamburger, homemade Mac -n-cheese, fries, onion rings, and refillable drinks. No skimping on anything. Too full for desserts which they have many options. We will return and recommend others to try it.

Holy wow! We stopped in just because it was close by, and wow are we so glad we did. Amazing all around. I had the special ginger burger and my husband had the corky burger. We both were blown away. Such a cute style restaurant, and in a town with a lot of flags being flown it was great to see the first restaurant with an American flag.

Corky’s catered my wedding of 100 people and absolutely knocked it out of the park. Their food was AMAZING - our guests couldn’t get enough. The staff was so attentive and worked their absolute butts off to make sure our wedding day was absolutely perfect. Highly recommend using them for catering in the Brevard area!!

Cute spot to stop in and grab a float and a dog, they have other options too, and of course fries are always great after a good hike in Pisgah!The little backyard area has frisbee to keep you occupied while you wait for your food, and plenty of picnic tables to sit and enjoy the outdoors.Personally, I loved the float with orange soda paired with mozzarella sticks!Can't even count how many times I drove by this place, but it's a gem! Looking forward to my next visit!

I make a point to stop at Corky’s whenever I’m visiting Pisgah for some hiking or biking! Their burgers are delicious, and their floats hit the spot. This time, I took my order to go and enjoyed one of the picnic spots about 5 minutes away.Note: Corky’s is a bit more on the expensive side for diner-style food. The food is really good and sourced intentionally, so they have my business!

My favorite little dinner area!! I love their stickers on their cups and how much detail they go into! Their food is great! The cheese steak is my favorite and they introduced me to sport peppers which are now my obsession. They have such a friendly staff and are overall just so nice and attentive and the food is beyond great! The okra is amazing as well, and I ate most of it before I could even get a picture, but you get a ton!

Quaint little restaurant that serves more than just hotdogs. Burgers, a few salads, some BBQ style dishes, shakes...Staff were constantly clearing and cleaning tables.Reasonable prices too.If you are in the area, should add this to your stop if needing lunch/dinner, or a snack.Visited again on 4/27 - still a really good place to eat.

THE BEST!! So many great things to say. The Brussels sprouts, sweet potato fries add marshmallow whip to the side, the Cajun fries, and the shakes!!! Not to mention the owners and staff are all FANTASTIC human beings. I wish we lived here so we could come every week.

Corky’s was a nice surprise upon walking in. There is a good variety on the menu. We had the patty melt and chicken parm sandwich, both were really good. You do order the sides separately though, so cost is a little higher that way. We shared fries. The atmosphere was clean and cozy with cool decor. You should go!
