We went here on a recommendation of a friend. A couple we met at our hotel came with us. The pink caddy was class a real treat. Picked us up and took us back to our hotel. We all had ribs combo, some of us had chicken, brisket or pulled pork. All came with two sides. So glad we did... More

Based on all of the rave reviews I took a group of coworker's during a business trip. The service was great but my good comments stop there. Food was mediocre at best and nothing was warm enough. Fried green tomatoes had way too much breading, mac and cheese had zero flavor. I'd recommend the corn fritters and dinner rolls if... More

Because we were in Memphis, we thought we would eat local & "rock n roll" So I had the cat fish, and the Mrs had half a rack of ribs, both very good and very large, but because we had decided we would finish off with the Pecan Pie, we shared 1, which was still "way too much" but too... More

My friend and I visited Marlowe's on a weekday at Midnight. The place was empty except a few folks at the bar but the service was attentive, quick and friendly. This is a must-do...expecially if you call for one of their pink limousines to pick you up and bring you there! What's not to love about a pink limo in... More

Marlowes will pick you up and drop you off in a pink Cadillac limo. This made it worth it for us. The BBQ was good not great. There are many better places in Memphis for BBQ.

We pulled into Memphis on a road trip and even though it was just a lay-over stop we had to get some good Bar-B-Que. We were so pleased. we were stuck at our Hotel but Marlowe's delivered. Really fast service and piping hot food. Looking forward to getting back to Memphis and doing the town up right. I'd Definitely go... More

We were here 20 years ago our oldest was in a high chair. It was the best BBQ I ever had. Son is now 21 we were going through so we wanted him to see this place we talked about his whole live. The atmosphere is totally different but the food just as good as we remember. Awesome.

Food was good here. Service was OK not great. Prices are reasonable and fair. Portion sizes are large. Drinks are good and average priced. Customers can get out of hand here and management seems to be OK with that, the 3 on scale is for safety issues alone. All else was great.

A great restaurant next to Graceland with a perfect Elvis Atmosphere and the staff are so kind. Best of all, the food is just delicious and you can taste all the meals that Elvis test... Just enjoy this place and your food!
