Description: You might think that our barbecue smoker runs on just fruit wood, but here at Marlowe's Ribs & Restaurant, we operate on family tradition of over 40 years. Just one mile from Graceland and the Guesthouse, Marlowe's Ribs has the best of both worlds-a local joint with a base of loyal regular customers and international tourists from every corner of the world here to pay homage to the King of Rock n Roll Elvis Presley. We have a fleet of seven "Pink Limousines" ready to come bring you to our front door in Memphis (Pink Cadillac's just how Elvis liked them). We have been featured on the Food Network Diners, Drive-ins and Dives - DDD and many other special events in the Western Tennessee region. Marlowe's is Family and kid friendly with free WiFi, full bar, gift shop, online ordering, delivery, takeout, catering, entertainment and the best #1 BBQ in Memphis.

We stayed in Memphis at the Guesthouse at Graceland, and Marlowe's picked us up at no charge in a pink Cadillac limo to take us to dinner and bring us back. Tips for the driver are appreciated.
The location is close to Graceland, and the food was excellent. The ribs were to die for.
Only note of caution, if you purchase any clothing from the gift shop, it is going to smell like smoke (from smoking the meats) for a very long time, even after going thru the laundry

This place was marvelous..the brisket was off the chain...ribs as good as I have ever had...sides are the bomb....the BBQ sauce perfect did not overwhelm the meat. Service was spectacular it's a must if your coming through

We shared a three entree/three side combo. We had brisket, ribs, and chicken. I liked the brisket but my fiancé said it was really more pulled beef than brisket. He said the ribs were good but tasted reheated. The chicken was just not good. It was so dry I almost choked - and that’s not an exaggeration. The okra and Mac and cheese and corn fritters were good.

They come and pick you up in a pink cadillac , great diner on Elvis Presley Boulevard.
Great ribs very good drinks. They say that Elvis dined here., but they can cant they.
When you've finished the Pink Cadillac will take you back to your hotel.

We saw this restaurant on Diners, dives and drive-ins so thought we should try it! It was about a mile from Graceland. Loved that they were playing Elvis music and an Elvis movie! Great ribs and brisket! Great atmosphere.
