Recommended to come here from the hotel where we were staying the night. Award winning ribs and the fried catfish was fantastic. Great service and great food, true southern hospitality. This could very easily become our go to place when visiting Memphis.

We stayed at the Graceland RV park and they delivered which was nice. We ordered ribs.....greasy and very salty...catfish was pretty good and mama's spaghetti not bad . The pecan pie was amazing!

From the moment you walk in, you feel Elvis' presence with all the pictures and great memorabilia as well as TV's playing movies, concerts & interviews. The staff is SUPER friendly and fun! The food is home cooking at its BEST and the tenderness and flavor of the BBQ is the most savory, delicious of anywhere I've ever eaten. You... More

We were picky about our choice for dinner. We were only able to eat out once during our stay in Memphis. We couldn't be happier with our choice. We like NC BBQ/Lexington style but we're not disappointed. There was no wait, the atmosphere was inviting and our waiter was attentive. Prices were reasonable. We had the combination ribs, chicken and... More

We were looking forward to lots of BBQ in Tennessee and elsewhere in the South. We had just come from Alabama and found too much was fried for our taste. At Marlowe's it was no different. Cole slaw and baked beans seem to be among the few things that aren't fried! Smoking the meats seems to be the major difference... More

My wife and I, together with our 5 mostly adult children, recently spent 3 days in Memphis. One of the best decisions we made was to go to Marlowes for dinner. They picked us up in a pink limo and brought us right to the door, where you immediately experience the sweet smokey aroma of authentic BBQ. Our servers name... More

Tasty Memphis barbecue. My brisket was tender was way too overloaded with sauce. "Sauce on the side" next time. My son enjoyed his bbq spaghetti and bbq chips but I will pass on that

Great restaurant near Graceland and is decorated in Elvis memorabilia. One of Elvis' favorite restaurants. Known for their award winning, famous Memphis bbq flavor. Have tried many dishes over a period of 12 years. Catch a ride in a pink limo to top the evening to or from local hotels. Owners are wonderful, kind and give great service. Visit their... More

Do not miss the opportunity to visit this restaurant if you are in Memphis. We called up and they sent out a complimentary pink limo to pick up our family of 7. After arriving in style, we were treated to the world's best waitress. Her name is Jameka and she was awesome - quick, attentive and with a great personality.... More

Asked about where to get great BBQ and Marlowes did not fail us. they only got a 4 because of where we sat. Food was great prices were reasonable. Drink prices a little high but that is due to the high liquor tax from what I seen. server was very informative and did a good job taking care of us.... More
