Marlowe's Ribs & Restaurant

Marlowe's Ribs is very smart because they cater to the tourists. They will pick up guests at their hotel or campground in a pink limo and drive them to the restaurant. We saw that pink limo at our campground many times. We decided to drive ourselves to Marlowe's on Jeff's birthday.

The restaurant is decorated with Elvis items. There are televisions that play his concerts.

I loved this painting.  It is by Thomas Kincaid.

This is our table.  It was covered in Elvis photos.

 We started our meal with an appetizer.  It was the Combination Platter.  It consists of Fried Green Tomatoes, Fried Pickles, Corn Fritters, and Chicken Tenders.  The appetizer was good.  I am not a fan of fried green tomatoes. 
I ordered a half slab of ribs since they are known for their BBQ.  My sides were coleslaw and fries.  The bread was really good.  It is fried.  The coleslaw was creamy. The fries were good.  The ribs, I did not care for at all.  They definitely had a smokey taste, but I didn't care for the texture.  Jeff said he thought they were baked.  Another diner came by and asked me what I thought of the ribs because she was thinking of ordering them.  She told me to be honest and I told her I didn't like them.

 Jeff ordered the beef brisket and the ribs.  He didn't care for the BBQ part of the meal either.

We enjoyed the decor at this restaurant, but not the BBQ.  We will not eat here again.

  1. Oh dear, well at least you tried the place out. I expect the other diner was pleased with your honesty about the ribs, wonder what she decided to have and if she liked it?!!!

    I decor looked interesting and comes over in the photos as having atmosphere.

  2. At least a fun experience because of the decor.
