You might think that our barbecue smoker runs on just fruit wood, but here at Marlowe's Ribs & Restaurant, we operate on family tradition of over 40 years. Just one mile from Graceland and the Guesthouse, Marlowe's Ribs has the best of both worlds-a local joint with a base of loyal regular customers and international tourists from every corner of the world here to pay homage to the King of Rock n Roll Elvis Presley. We have a fleet of seven "Pink Limousines" ready to come bring you to our front door in Memphis (Pink Cadillac's just how Elvis liked them). We have been featured on the Food Network Diners, Drive-ins and Dives - DDD and many other special events in the Western Tennessee region. Marlowe's is Family and kid friendly with free WiFi, full bar, gift shop, online ordering, delivery, takeout, catering, entertainment and the best #1 BBQ in Memphis.
