It was cool to be picked up at our hotel in a pink Cadillac and driven to Marlowes - no charge. The food was good, but too much of it. We had a shared starter and hadn't finished it when the mains arrived. I had the brisket and it tasted good, but I left more than I ate. If we... More

A Memphis must for everyone and Elvis fans. What fun to be picked up by the pink limo and then try some southern cooking at reasonable prices. The bonus is all the Elvis memorabilia! We tried a few items the server recommended and enjoyed them all. Thank you Marlowes for one of the many wonderful memories of Memphis.

Okay, I have read all of the reviews from around March when we stayed in Memphis. The weather was particularly cold, and we wanted to go to Marlowes, we say on the news the weather was closing in, and indeed it did, everthing closed down. We booked the lmo from our hotel, and the waitress politely asked us if we... More

Juicy ribs and beef brisket. Tasty beans and slaw. And the size of the helpings! Don't come unless you're hungry. You can't miss with that pink building.

Traveling thru Memphis to Hot Springs and had to have BBQ. Guy Fieri had recommended Marlowes. It is located right down the street from Graceland and they even have pink Cadillac limos that will pick you up at local hotels! We started out with the combo app platter- fried green tomatoes, pickles, ch tenders and corn fritters. All good, actually... More

We stopped here on our way to NOLA and after 11 hours on the road, we just wanted a decent meal. I was blown away instead. The corn fritters were beyond great. The mac and cheese was phenomenal. And the ribs - there are no words for how great this food was. Wish we had stayed another night just to... More

We had been on the road 2 days, travelling from Florida to St Louis and were too tired to go out for dinner and didn't want to leave our dogs in the hotel room. We ordered in. It was the best experience, food absolutely delicious. The front desk gave us the menu. We figured Memphis is the place for Bar-B-Q.... More
