I came here for a late lunch during Elvis Week. The place was still packed as it's only one mile from Graceland. Graceland traffic was crazy rediculous. They had an Elvis impersonator and I caught the last 15 mins of it. Yes, this place is...More

This was among the most mediocre bbq I have had. The price was not low but we did get a lot of that mediocre food. The only real reason to go was to see all the Elvis memorabilia on the walls.

You can't leave this state without eating at Marlowes! The food was beyond delicious and the staff were very friendly. The outside of the building looks like it's small and you will have to wait for a table. However, we were seated immediately and had...More

Very good restaurant for BBQ, which in Memphis, is saying something. Located just a mile or so from Graceland, it was a natural choice to stop here during our visit. The menu has a lot to offer, but it was the owner, who chatted us...More

If you want a limo ride they will come to your location and pick you up(and take you back). The food is good. Couldn't finish the brisket and it was tasty. More Elvis theme going on here. Husbands smoked turkey sandwich tasted great. He loved...More

Just a stones throw from Graceland - this is the place for BBQ. My wife asked around for where the locals go - this is the place. Of course it still has an Elvis flare along with pink Cadalacs and a guest shop. But the...More

I know they do have chicken fingers/tenders, fries, Mac & Cheese. I'm not sure on the price. Hope this helps you.

Yes, they pick up at the entrance to the south tower. Go to the guest services desk and they will make all of the arrangements for you. The caddy can carry up to 7 passengers so they can easily take a small group.
