Best BBQ I've ever had

This restaurant gets an extra bonus rave from me, since they also delivered to the hotel that I stayed at. I ordered a little bit of everything to try. The fried green tomatoes were great as were the corn fritters and deep fried pickles. The brisket and BBQ pork were awesome, but the real win was... read more

We saw this place advertised and checked Trip Advisor before going there. What a great decision! A free chauffeur service in a Pink Limo meant we could relax, have a few drinks and enjoy our meal. The food was great, excellent service and good value too! Well worth a visit.

We were lured here by the pink limo ride, but one bite of the BBQ hooked us! The staff is great everyone from the drivers to the servers to the gift shop( you have to stop in) cashier were pleasant, friendly, and cheerful! We have decided that Marlowes itself is worth the 300 mile trip. We are planning our next... More

The restaurant itself was fun to view all the Elvis memorabilia. Waiter was friendly and attentive. I have the ribs and my husband had the pulled pork sandwich. Both were average but not overly impressive.

We had and assortment of ribs, pork and brisket. Sides were homemade chips and corn fritters. All food was smoked. Great flavor and great sauce. The price is reasonable. if you stay at a local hotel call ahead and they will pick you up and drop you off in a stretch pink Cadillac in honor of Elvis. We bought sauce... More

If staying at a participating hotel, you can get a free ride in a pink Cadillac limo. In Memphis to tour Graceland, the family decided to sample some Memphis BBQ. First, the place decked out with plenty of Elvis photos, paintings and the like. GI Blues plays on the TVs and there is also a gift shop (less expensive than... More

We got caught in the great snowstorm of 2015 in early March in Memphis. It turned out that Marlows was close to our hotel, which was close to Graceland, which was on my wife's (but not my) bucket list. I tracked Marlows down through Trip Advisor while she was touring Elvis' home. Unfortunately, he wasn't in during her visit. We... More

Marlowe's is two minutes down the street from Graceland. The servers were amazingly friendly. The food was delicious, southern style bbq! It doesn't get any better than that! And the restaurant is decorated with Elvis' memorabilia! Loved this place and will definitely eat there again when I visit Memphis.

This place was awesome. The Pink Limo picked us up at Hotel. We stayed at Days Inn, I believe they only pick up at a few hotels. We all had BBQ. I had the BBQ spaghetti, out of my comfort zone with this, but it was so very good. The service was top notch. Very friendly people and lots of... More

It was our last night in Memphis and we had already planned to eat at Marlowes so we decided to make it New Years Eve.....we don't need fancy - so why not.....Just wish we had not waited until our last night - we would have ate there every single night. It wasn't busy - slipped right in and had one... More
