We were in Memphis for 5 days, ate there twice. I personally had the BBQ spaghetti and the brisket. Both were great. The gift shop has plenty to look at.

Besides the tasty barbecue, I got some good information at the gift ship when I bought some packets of their rub. They have a great selection of Elvis souvenirs, and the music is playing all the time. Friendly and helpful staff!

Marlowe’s has become a regular stop for us when we are in Memphis (actually one of the highlights of our visits). Food is always good, plentiful, and the staff is friendly. Don’t forget to get the pecan pie!

Not the best Q I’ve had in Memphis by far but adequate. Service is inattentive at best. Requests take forever. Side dishes weak. Slab ok. No sauce guy. Adequate. Slab

Great lunch! Fried green tomatoes to start & we split a 2 meat combo. Ribs were deliciously smoked and fell off the bone. Brisket was moist & flavorful. We had Cole slaw & corn fritters as our sides as well.We were stuffed!
