Elvis ate here! We arrived a bit before opening and were greeted and welcomed to come on in. This was great because we were starving! BBQ was fantastic, prices were good and service was fantastic. Will be returning if back in the area.

First to set the Memphis mood...they picked us up from the Heartbreak Hotel in one of their pink caddy limos for free. I ordered the fall off the bone ribs, with freid okra and corn fritters. It was awesome! A must stop when in Memphis!

After spending a great day visiting all of the Elvis stuff and a few record studios we decided to spend our last evening of our trip eating some good BBQ. I asked the desk clerk at the Heartbreak Hotel where he ate- I trust the locals more than the tourist propaganda.... He suggested Marlowe's. When I asked for directions, he... More

By picking up the pink fuzzy phone in the lobby of the hotel you get a direct line to Marlowes Restaurant and Ribs. They come to the hotel in a pink cadillac to pick you up for free. The BBQ was great and we loved the corn fritters. Service was fast and good. Highly recommended.

Just had dinner at Marlowes and loved it. The staff were very friendly, prices are reasonable (we had a 10% discount from our hotel), and the BBQ was great. I think you have to have BBQ something if you eat here. They even have BBQ'd spaghetti. We both had pulled pork and liked it. We brought enough back to the... More

BBQ is subjective. Some like sweet and smokey, some like tart and vinegar(y). I'm tart and vinegar(y), and that how I like my BBQ, lol. The staff is so friendly, all the food was so yummy. Go to the gift shop and get some rub, and sauce. Don't miss this delicious place, it's just down the road from Graceland, (equally... More

We stayed at the Heartbreak Hotel while in Memphis and there is a pink fur telephone in the lobby with direct line to Marlowes! We didn't have a reservation but the car came for us within 15 minutes - great service. We are not big fans of BBQ but wanted the experience so we hoped for other options and were... More
