BBQ Catering

Whether it’s the company BBQ, a family reunion, or the best block party your Chicago neighborhood has ever seen, Corky’s can make your picnic feel like the party of the year. We offer such options as their famous fried chicken, all-beef hamburgers, BBQ ribs, BBQ rib tips, and Johnsonville bratwurst grilled on an open flame, plus many more. You’ll have all the favorites of a regular picnic or BBQ, but with the Corky’s twist that will have everyone talking. The best part is that you can enjoy your party without ever having to cook a thing. The wonderful smells of BBQ food will be everywhere but you’ll have a chance to run around with the kids or enjoy a beer with your buds without being chained to a smoky grill for the entire day. Be a guest at your own party this summer.
