This is great BBQ but...

the service left a little to be desired, Our waiter was extremely good when he had time to look after us. We're pretty laid back so the problem was he was running too many tables.

While visiting Graceland we wanted to try some good Memphis barbecue. We ordered the ribs for 2 and were not disappointed. Service was excellent.

Visiting Graceland right down the street. Heard this is a DDD recommendation so had to stop. They could charge for the smells in this place. WOW. We had the full rack the first night. The side of corn fritters were alittle desert with our meal. Delish. You can't leave hungry. We had to come back our second night in Memphis.

We asked around for a good place for barbecue. We were directed here and it was wonderful! It is on Elvis Presley Blvd so we saw Graceland on our way. Elvis ate here many times. Our waitress is the grandaughter of the owner and gave us a brief history. The place is old and could use a little TLC but... More

D3 advised great BBQ; the BBQ Spaghetti is a must try; appetizers are great; and the best part the owners are from Southwestern Pennsylvania Pittsburgh area and they know BBQ; great Elvis stuff too; right down the street from Graceland and easy to get back on the interstate; a MUST place to eat in Memphis.

Started off with great service and went to great food. We got a rack of ribs and 4 sides. Ribs were tender and fall off the bone good. The sides were cole slaw, baked beans, Mac & cheese and green beans. Every one was delicious. Check out the Elvis memorable and enjoy the food.

After a long day of driving and terrible luck finding a hotel, the hotel employee suggested that we visit Marlowes. We had the ribs for 2 and was fantastic! Nothing along the way compared to the ribs we had at Marlowes!

The pulled pork was good. the atmosphere was all Elvis, to include a singer. Everyone in the party enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. and it was better than a #1 BBQ place in town.
