My husband and I are from South Carolina and love good BBQ. We tried Smokin' Moe's while in town for the day. It's an order at the counter type of place, which is fine by me. They have several options. I went with the pulled pork and my husband had the Carolina ribs. My pork was delicious! The bun... read more

It was a very nice lunch, and sitting in the back garden area really gives you a more intimate conversational environment. Counter service and followup is very solid; and even eating indoors is conducive for conversation--not something you can say for many restaurants in chico. We're lucky to have a place in town that does 'cue to this level; and... More

My wife had pulled pork sandwich and it was okay. I had the tri tip sandwich and it was dry and mediocre. We were told to try the pulled pork and stuffed potatoes but we declined. Wish we had tried the potato specials.

We returned to Smokin' Mos after not eating there for a while. The food was better, but the service was still slow and unattentive. My husband ordered the Pulled Pork Sandwich and I ordered the BBQ Sampler. The ribs were great as always, but the chicken was dry and overcooked once again. The pulled pork was tasty. Since the food... More

Casual BBQ restaurant, order at the counter and they bring it to you, friendly place. Small but nice enough outdoor dining area. My husband and I really like the BBQ, and the sides are pretty good too - beans are my fave, potato salad and cole slaw are a bit bland. Love all the old signs in the dining room,... More

I had their chicken salad and it made for a wonderful lunch! I have also had their ribs in the past and they are delish!

For Chico they do an okay job on BBQ. But -- as a native midwesterner, my standards for BBQ are pretty high, and they just don't quite hit that mark. I tried the pulled pork (which should be a staple for any BBQ spot worthwhile) and it was tender, but lacked that deep smoked flavor it should have, and whatever... More

This is a fun little diner and does not take itself too seriously. Yeah, it looks like my uncles barn dressed up for the county fair with checkered tables and blue collar whimsy, but the food ain't so bad. Good BBQ style food/meats with the usual country sides. The dining room is colourful, open, and nostalgic. Come in a ready-for-anything... More

A cheap source of bar-b-que featuring beef, chicken and pork. The restaurant is picnic table casual but the sandwiches are the main attraction.
