We ate here last weekend after going to graceland. Lots of Elvis memorabilia in the restaurant. The ribs were good but nothing out of this world. Kids loved the hamburgers though. Baked beans and fried okra were really good.

The pink Cadillac ride was fun. My wife and I each ordered the 2 meat plate so we could try 4 different meats. The pulled pork was really good without their sauce but we found the chicken,brisket and baby back ribs really dry and over cooked. The side dishes were good and the service was great. I will try them... More

We stayed at the Graceland RV Park next door to the Heartbreak Hotel and Graceland. The restaurant provides a free shuttle in a pink Cadillac. We had some very tasty BBQ and a local brew called Ghost River Golden Ale. Everything was delicious. And of course there is a gift shop. Cheers!

Took the complimentary stretch pink cadillac limo to and from our campground. Driver was polite, car was old and run-down. Basically a bar with locals at the bar itself. Waitress was polite. Food was great. Full rack ribs, BBQ shrimp, steak salad - all very tasty. Would eat there again, but one time in the pink cadillac is enough.

The food was just OK for us but we know how to cook great smoked food ourselves. The portions are nice sized and I saw salads that were big and looked great! We have five kids so we just got a bunch of appetizers and a couple of combo meat meals and a rack of rib meal to share between... More

Lovely atmosphere, great service & simply the best ribs & brisket we had on our trip (and we had a lot)! Absolute must do when visiting Graceland (we didn't find anywhere else good to eat on Elvis Presley boulevard!!)

Even though I wanted to eat at Marlowes, after our tour of Graceland I asked for good BBQ recommendations and they suggested Marlowes, so I knew I was making a good choice. We tried the Fried Rolls for a small starter, and while tasty with honey, they were too heavy for us (dinner rolls cooked by deep frying). We order... More

We ate there because I wanted the kids to get the experience of being picked up in a limo, and they absolutely loved it, although we adults could see that the limos were run down. For kids, it was great. The food was mostly awesome (except the ribs). The atmosphere was good, but the biggest con was that it was... More

We ended our Graceland tour with lunch at Marlowes, it was a perfect place to end our Elvis tour. Generous portions, friendly service, huge variety to select from and a good kids menu. Everything was delicious - the sweet tea, ribs, catfish, mac n cheese and the mushrooms. Add that to an casual, Elvis atmosphere, we can't wait to go... More

We ordered the rib dinners and the chicken dinners. The food was very tasty and they have a large assortment of sides. The place is loaded with Elvis items to look at and is located close to Graceland. Great finish to a day at Graceland before heading back to the motor home.
