Remember the show “Cheers?” Randy Elam, the owner of Corky’s Bar & Grill, compares his business to the theme song for the popular comedy series. He feels grateful that coming to work doesn’t seem like work. It feels more like coming to a place where he can hang out with great friends.
“It’s the best-kept secret in Odessa!”
He says many don’t realize there’s a backyard to Corky’s where live performances occur. You’ll find a little bit of everything when it comes to music, including country and classic rock.
Randy has owned it now for 14 years. The grill has different types of food, such as nachos and quesadillas. His favorite food is the green chicken enchiladas.
You will also find a cute cat that just showed up and seems to be a hit with the customers. Poor Randy has to stay away since he’s allergic.
Something else interesting about Randy, he once worked at Dos Amigos, another popular place here in our wonderful city.
