We love the beef brisket, baked beans, coleslaw. The best part was the BBQ sauce --so good you could not get enough. Right down the street from Graceland. Seemed safe as anywhere else to eat!

I cannot recommend anyone go here due to its location in a dangerous area. The food is good, but much better can be had in safer locations! Elvis Preseley Blvd is only safe right in the Graceland area.... DO NOT STOP anywhere else on that street nearby.

When in the south we wanted to try southern food. Marlowes did not disappoint. I have never eaten this type of food. Michelle our server was friendly and was patient with a newbie. Okay I think I died and went to heaven when I tried the corn fritters. Where have they been all my life. I had southern chicken which... More

Marlowes is a very "Memphis" place to eat with Elvis music and movies on the TVs. Pink limo's outside. Ribs very meaty, pulled pork standard (avg for Memphis, but better than what is in your town), and great sauce. No dry rub here. Huge portions. You will leave stuffed. Outstanding side dishes too, including the best beans I have ever... More

I have lived in Whitehaven my entire life. I just started going on a regular basis, at least twice a week. I always enjoy the food, and the service most of the time. I had one bad experience with a server but I decided how to handle that. Now the biggest problem that I have is the gnat. You have... More

So maybe this review isn't entirely fair. I travel around the US for work. Their brisket is not TX brisket, but it's good. Their chicken is decent, but it's nothing special. It didn't actually taste like chicken. I just finished eating it and have the taste in my mouth and I can't quite place it, but chicken is not one... More

I was recommended to this place by the concierge at The Guesthouse at Graceland. They pick you up in a pink cadillac limo and make you feel like a Queen. Once you arrive, the REAL DEAL begins...Lots of Elvis memorabilia and artifacts all over this humble restaurant...but it's not humble long!!! The young waiter (I didn't get his name, but... More

What an incredible place to get some Memphis BBQ. They immediately were able to sit our large party and serve us. Excellent, amazing, delicious does not adequately describe the food, atmosphere and staff at the restaurant. From the appetizers to the ribs, everything was fantastic. They helped accommodate our two children and made the meal memorable for all of us.... More

Let me tell you, they have the best chicken tender salad with homemade honey mustard dressing. It's huge!!! Enough to share! I've never tasted the BBQ but my husband loves it. Ask for Mallory. Enjoy all the Elvis stuff too!
