We had a really great meal in Marlow's. There were 6 of us and we all loved our choices. For appetizers we had fried green tomatoes, fried Gouda and fried pickles. All very good, the pickles being the most flavorful in my opinion. On all the pulled pork dishes I like that they put the sauce on the side. I... More

We wanted a feed so we asked the lady at the hotel counter at the Days Inn opposite Gracelands (where we were staying) for some advice as to where to go for some tucker. She told us to try Marlowes. So we walked down to the restaurant for dinner. Here we got to try our first genuine ribs, beans and... More

We camped at Graceland RV Park and they offered a free limo ride to this restaurant. It was rated in the top 10 on Trip Advisor and they are right. My wife ordered a combination platter (a meal in of itself). Fried pickles, corn fritters, fried green tomatoes, and two large chicken tenders. The tenders were a tad over fried... More

Our third visit in 6 years. Again the fried green tomatoes didn't disappoint. They are the best that we have had in Memphis. Food is always great. Massive portions and very tasty - a must visit.

This place is fantastic. Our food was so hot and so good. Our waitstaff, who is, Jamaica, was fantastic. Our glass was never dry and she was so friendly. It does take a while to get your food, but it is so worth it when you do. All the Elvis stuff is amazing. Don't miss this place.

I enjoyed the drinks. I had the steel curtain. The best part got meal was the fried pickles. The sandwich was okay but the gnats flying everywhere took the joy out of my eating. I covered my food every bit. The bathroom has crazy gnats too. Why are the doors open in the back.

From pink pig and pink limo outside to the Elvis inspired decor inside we enjoyed every moment of our visit. The food was a true testament to Memphis BarBQ! Did not disappoint! Ribs fell off the bone, side dishes complimented the bbq. We left very satisfied!

Delicious BBQ ribs and chicken. Since we had never been there before, our friendly waitress was helpful in describing the items on the menu. We enjoyed our meal and what we saw at other tables look good too. Next time I want to try their big salad. Marlow's is right across the street from Graceland, so the theme is about... More
