You can even get a pink limo to pick you up from the Heartbreak Hotel at Graceland. The food was reasonably priced and there was a good variety. The corn poppers are a must and you cannot go wrong with any meat choice.

We picked up the pink fluffy telephone in heartbreak hotel for a free call. We made our reservation and was picked up and returned to our hotel in a huge pink cadalac, all free. The ribs, pulled pork and all the trimmings was really good. Amazing little gift shop, great decor. Lots of tables on different levels. A wonderful evening.

My son and I had the ribs, and my wife had bbq shrimp. You could taste the slow smoked, and the sauce was excellent! The shrimp were also very tasty! The service was first class and fast. I recommend going there in off hours, because during dinner hours it's crazy busy, and with good reason!

Let me start by saying I am not a huge fan of wet Bar-B-Q but these were the best ribs I have ever had my wife and I spilt the 3 meat 3 side platter and we brought home a lot of food. This was a great experience we may stop again tomorrow before we leave.

My mouth started watering when I looked at Marlowe's menu online while making our plans for our visit to Memphis. I was looking for a place not too far from the airport and fairly close to Graceland - Marlowe's fit the bill on both counts. We wouldn't ordinarily eat at the same restaurant 3 days in a row, but we... More

Very convenient to get too, only a mile or so down the road from Graceland. We went for lunch, and had the best BBQ of our vacation. Reasonable prices, friendly serves, and incredible BBQ. Can't recommend it enough

It was either here or downtown Memphis. Decided to go to Marlowes. Not sorry we did. I wasn't overly impressed. The food was good. We had 1/2 rack of ribs and the brisket dinner. Each came with beans and cole slaw. Coleslaw was good, beans ok. The brisket was good but had too much sauce for me. A good amount... More

Was good food, but a very limited menu meant you had to appreciate pork to really appreciate Marlowes.....however, the servings were over generous, so very good value for money

We took advantage of the free limo and had a very reasonable meal. The portions were enormous and we made the mistake off ordering starters that were a meal in the selves. Beer reasonable price and all in all with live music good value
