We're not Elvis fans, but we are now fans of Marlowe's! We wanted to visit this BBQ place because it came highly recommended and they did not disappoint. The service was quick and friendly. Two of us ordered the full rack of ribs for two, but the others in our party ate as much -- more -- than we did.... More

Very good prices for the set menu!! I was very intrigued when i heard that you can bring your own bottle of wine as long as you purchase a main meal! I will be definitely going back to try that!

We were staying at the Heartbreak Hotel. We saw that Marlowe's picks up and drops off from the hotel. Since I look at Trip Advisor anytime I'm out of town, I did so in this case as well. I was expecting poor ratings since I didn't notice the restaurant in overall good listings of Memphis. On previous trips we went... More

yes, the food was good. but, nobody seemed to care that we were even there. we purposely went when they were not crowded. no one greeted us or seated us, for at least 5 minutes. we just stood there like dopes. they kept walking by, ignoring us. the waiter was luke-warm, at best. we got the mixed meat platter, and...

You only have to eat at Marlowe's once to see why they are famous. The BBQ is delicious and if you are an Elvis fan; this is THE place to eat while you are in Memphis. It is right up the street from Graceland and is filled with Elvis memorabilia and Elvis movies are on the tvs continuously. There is... More

We were in town visiting friends. They have been forced to go to Graceland several times and I promised them BBQ if we could just do a drive by and sign the wall. Turns out this is the best BBQ they have had since they moved here. The meat was juicy and so tender it melted in your mouth. The... More

Marlowes is about a mile down the road from Graceland. You can’t miss it – the building is shaped like a pink pig! Patrons included both locals and tourists. The restaurant has a fun quirky décor; much of it dedicated to Elvis. There’s also a souvenir shop inside. The menu focuses on beef, chicken and pork BBQ. They also serve... More

We had such a great experience the first time we visited Marlowe's that we went back two days later. The servers are friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. The ribs and pulled pork are smokey and succulent and the sides leave one wondering what to taste next. Their BBQ sauce is a great foil for the proteins. Even though Marlowe's is a... More

We went here as there was a limo from the Graceland RV park. It was out of this world. The atmosphere is incredible as is the food. Had fried green tomatoes and fried dill pickle for the first time ever. Nothing bad here all great. We still talk about it.
