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.

We really enjoyed the free ride in the pink limo which also meant we could have wine with dinner. The ribs were oh so good, the service wonderful and a very nice ambiance. Meeting the man who started the restaurant way back when (he now operates the gift shop) was an extra special experience. He had stories to tell and... More

The pink caddy driving up and down the road will catch your eye. The smell of bbq will draw you in. The service is above and beyond anything I have ever seen. Then comes the meal. Oh my is I can say. The one of a kind taste of the best bbq I have ever tasted. One visit I hope... More

We ate here after taking a free ride in a pink Cadillac limo from where we were staying. The ride was nice, I gave the driver a tip (both ways - two different drivers - two different Caddys). The restaurant is a shrine to Elvis. It's just blocks from Graceland, and they serve Barbeque or home cookin'. We went on... More

Great BBQ.....ribs, brisket and pulled pork! Loved the atmosphere which is all Elvis. Gold records, some of his stage outfits, tv's playing his movies. LARGE PORTIONS! Our server Luke was great. Loved the gift shop also and the gentlemen working that night was awesome to talk to. This is a must !
