Over rated. BBQ was good but nothing to write home about. Sides, corn fritters, beans, Mac & cheese all ok, nothing special. I wouldn’t go out of my way to come back.

I can usually eat BBQ a few times a year and was very opinionated about Memphis BBQ before trying it. I had read about the vinegar taste etc. I am used to a honey-molasses-brown sugar sweet BBQ, BUT.....we ordered the BBQ Pork sandwich and half...rack of ribs, corn nuggets and fries. The pork was delicious and no need for sauce, the ribs even better! With deliver fees etc. the first night we paid 65$ for two and the second night we ordered online and picked up and took back to hotel and the meal was $44 with a $13 tip huge difference in price. Great food, would eat here again if I came to Memphis (7 hours away), so not a luxury.More

place is old runned down and dirty, lured into that by the porter of The Guest House at Graceland hotel with the pink limo ride. anyone would be better off eating a tv dinner. the place seems to be a local hang out at the...bar for locals who interestingly enough do not order food there only drinks, we should have payed more attention to that and not the lure of Elvis Presley memobrila. Save yourself the big bucks and NOT go to this place. plenty of fast food places around a lot cheaper and tastier than the smoked everything food or the groce looking prehistoric looking chicken wings or even the greasy chicken tenders or smoked chicken or ribs or even corn fritters were groce 🤮🤢More

Meat was dry, tried ribs, chicken, BBQ sandwich- had to ask for extra sauce just to get it down. Fried green tomatoes were pretty good. They have root beer, tea, and made chocolate milk for the kids. The gift shop was great, the guy running...the register in the gift shop was great too! Cool Elvis decor.More

Brisket portion was 2 tiny pieces that were mediocre at best. The shrimp was OK but not cooked in butter like they said but margarine which I can not eat. All the hype from DDD and Trip A reviews, will never recommend to anyone. Had...to come back to hotel to eat snacks we brought.More

My husband and I were passing through Memphis and found Marlowe’s on Google. It sounded good so we stopped in and we were not disappointed. We enjoyed the chicken, brisket which had great Smokey flavor and the homemade chicken soup was so delicious. Last but...not least our service was great, Vee was our server and she was wonderful.More

The food was very good and the service was excellent! The place was not busy but according to the waiter, it’s just that time of year! We ordered the combination platter and everything was very flavorful. I ordered the Blue Suede Shoes burger and Mac...and cheese. It was delicious!More

Just a mile or 2 away from Graceland and the Guesthouse, Marlow’s is easy to find - look for the pink pig! Good food & generous portions with plenty of Elvis memorabilia to see. Our waitress, Bailey (?), was great!

You would have to ask at the restaurant. Since it is tomato based and there is no gluten in tomatoes.......
