What an incredible place to get some Memphis BBQ. They immediately were able to sit our large party and serve us. Excellent, amazing, delicious does not adequately describe the food, atmosphere and staff at the restaurant. From the appetizers to the ribs, everything was fantastic. They helped accommodate our two children and made the meal memorable for all of us.... More

Let me tell you, they have the best chicken tender salad with homemade honey mustard dressing. It's huge!!! Enough to share! I've never tasted the BBQ but my husband loves it. Ask for Mallory. Enjoy all the Elvis stuff too!

I have spent a lot of time in Memphis in the past 35 years. This place has been around even longer, but it was never considered the city's best place for BBQ. Today, it still does not qualify in my book. Yet the portions are huge, the sauce is super sweet, the fries are a-plenty and you will definitely get... More

Amazing BBQ! Elvis memorabilia cover the walls and his music plays in the background. We got the pork ribs and beef brisket. It was so moist and delicious. They have hearty portions and great service. If you are craving good barbecue this is the place to go.

We tried Marlowe's mostly because it was later in the evening (about 9p) on Christmas eve (most places were closed early for Christmas) after we picked up our son flying in from California. Trip Advisor said it was good so gave it a go even though we had misgivings being just down the massive tourist attraction that is Graceland. Walked... More

I got the beef brisket and have to say I was not that impressed...I think it's their bbq sauce that I'm not a fan of - it's very thick, almost gravy-like consistency. Very nice waiter though.

We had a shared rack of ribs Marlowe style with beans, fries and cole slaw. Every bite was very good. The ribs were definitely melt in your mouth, fall off the bone with an interesting, sweet taste. Very different from our local Texas style BBQ. Our waiter was Fred, a man with a great personality and funny stories who has... More
