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

Coming from Texas, I always assumed we have the biggest plates....Marlowe's proved me wrong. SO MUCH GREAT FOOD. Do yourself a favor and do NOT plan on eating a big breakfast or lunch before visiting this wonderful place. We loved how festive & outrageously decorated Marlowe's was--I mean, it's right down the road from Graceland, so how could they not... More

This was the placer that Elvis ate at, so it's popular! Having said that we didn't book and get a table fairly easily. Great buzz, ordered service and ribs that are divine.

The evening starts with a free pickup in a pink limousine at your motel. A friendly driver pointed out the highlights of Memphis (mostly Elvis related) on the way. Quick friendly service at the restaurant (ask for Malory) of the largest servings I had seen for a while. Afterwards you can visit the (Elvis related) gift & souvenir shop and... More
