I had to log on and place a review right away. Yes, even the tourist-trap Rendezvous has served better on their worst day. Well, I take that back; Rendezvous serves their share of inedible ribs as well. The ribs are not only the most expensive in town, but they are the WORST and it's not even a close call. Well, I haven't tried all of the no-name places, but out of the 10+ places that you've heard of, the ribs from here are by far the WORST! Marlowe’s “full” slab of ribs are $21.95 and completely inedible, as they were cooked about 6 hours too long. I managed to get about 2 bites, but that was very well done “meat,” but it doesn’t even justify comparison to normal ribs. They were almost completely charred and hardened so I could not even bight into them. Even if overcooked, they should never have left the kitchen. p.s. My wife often tries fried green tomatoes, and thought they were decent ($6.95). The slaw is that creamy style and she hated it. I didn’t even bother to try the slaw because I had no ribs to eat it with. Lastly, the pulled pork sandwich ($7.95) was awful. In summary, it is embarrassing to have Memphis restaurants sell any bbq of such POOR quality. I thought it was stupid trying it, as it is close to tourist-central/Graceland, but I JUST noticed reviews and thought, how did I miss this place? Now I know.
