I love the pulled pork plate here, but Marlowes has even more delicious foods they serve. Come with an appetite because the portions are huge!! Everything is made from scratch!! The best place for BBQ when in Memphis!!!

The best thing I can say about this place is that it had a paved parking lot. Seriously..... trip advisor rated it 5 and 3/4 stars.......skip it and eat at Burger King.

Some of the best barbeque I've ever eaten! Didn't care much for the chocolate cake dessert, but the food was amazing!

We got in late to the Heartbreak and we were looking for some good BBQ and the hotel recommended Marlowes...They have a pink phone that you call from and Marlowes sends a "pink Limo" to pick up you up. Our girls got the biggest kick out of that. Our driver was very friendly as was our server. Our server recommended... More

Honestly, Great great BBQ. Ribs were exceptional and the sauce OH MY DAYS. Service was always with a smile Get the free pink Cadillac from Heartbreak if you are staying there. (Pink Rhinestone phone in reception) Loved this place. Bought the t-shirt, rub & sauce!!

Marlowe's in Memphis on Elvis Presley Blvd. has the best Barbecue in TN. My personal opinion for what it's worth. We have eaten ribs in some of the best barbecue places in Texas, Oklahoma and Alabama, so I would have to say Marlowe's are as good as or better. My wife and I were going to a church retreat in...

Our waiter, whose name was Luke, took our drink order immediatly.. After our drinks were brought and we were ready to order.... More

Loved the pink Cadillac limo that picked us up at our hotel and the Elvis memorabilia was awesome, but the food was average. Ribs were dry, fried okra was good, roll was small and dry, brownie sundae was good. Prices are good and portions are large, so I would recommend it for the experience.

I actually went here thinking it was someplace else. My hotel sent me here and I thought it was a chain that I had visited in other cities. I was pleasantly surprised to find that it is a great local restaurant. There was a very fun Elvis impersonator there that night. So...atmosphere was great, food was great and service was... More
