The best food we ate during a 2 week road trip. Still dreaming about it. The pick up / drop off service was a nice feature as well.

A pink limo will pick you up from several places to take you to the restaurant. Lots of Elvis memorabilia. Fried fish and barbecue were really good.

We have ate at several of the BBQ in rhe Memphis area . Trip Advisor had this place highly rated. My and I ordered the ribs - slab for 2. These were by far the worse ribs we have ate in Memphis. We may have just hot a bad slab but we will not return.

I had the loaded potato with bbq pork. I didn't think it would be filling but I could only eat half. The meat was sooo good ! Glad we stopped there.

Now this brought back nostalgia. I used to work at a hotel that they provide the limo service for. So I think if you are visiting Memphis and staying close to Graceland, call them to pick you up, get some amazing food! Enjoy there Elvis gift shop and ride in style!

Marlowes is a family favorite of ours and if you haven't tried it, you should! The restaurant has been around many years, is always busy and just down the street from Graceland.

This is the first time I've eaten BBQ in Memphis. I have eaten BBQ from the Carolinas to California. I've had some great BBQ and some that would turn your stomach. Im not sure if this place is a true representation of what BBQ is like in Memphis. My family of five tried a good variety of their BBQ. The... More

My husband and I got engaged at Marlowe's October 1985 and we go back every year to celebrate our Engagement Anniversary! It seems that Marlowe's keeps reinventing itself! It was a great restaurant then with great food and it is now! We love the Elvis Presley atmosphere and the Memphis BBQ! We just last year, started inviting other couples to... More

Great choice for Memphis BBQ! Consider ordering one of the many combinations and sharing - it's a LOT of food - but delicious! And, apparently, Elvis actually ate here!
