We really enjoyed our tri tip sandwiches. Their sauces are extremely good. I really recommend the garlic fries. Be sure to have a few friends around to help finish them off. The ambience is kind of an eclectic southern mess. The food is good, so that is not a big deal.

Without having read the reviews on tripadvisor, we wouldn't have entered that place, most likely. But don't let yourself be misled, the food is delicious, the stuff very friendly and quick, you will not be disappointed! We had the ribs, half chicken and some burgers. The ribs just melted in our mouth, the chicken was delicious and very tasty and... More

The place is real clean, and the service was wonderful! Why do you have to have a minimum of 100 words when you say all you want to in a lot less? This optional should be left up to the customer!! We had the pulled pork sandwiches.

Came with the family looking for good quality BBQ, and we found it!! The restaurant itself looked ok, not too nice. However, the food was outstanding. We had pork ribs, grilled chicken, fries and hamburger. All was delicious. Especially the BBQ sauces were impressive! Highly recommended:)

We were so excited to come back to this place as we remember how juicy the ribs were 3 years ago. Nah.... the good chef has left. The ribs served today look dry and old. It didn't look great anymore. As predicted, it tasted old and dry. We felt so regretful to pay $30 for old and dry ribs. Very... More

When we arrived in Pismo for a few days at lunchtime we were quite hungry so we headed to Mo's for a hearty lunch. We ordered pulled pork sandwiches with baked beans and onion rings. The sandwich was great! We enjoyed trying all four of their BBQ sauces. The pork had great flavor and was very tender. I love baked... More

We were looking for a place to eat some bbq after a day at the beach. We ordered the BBQ Sampler to share - chicken, pulled pork and ribs - and got the garlic fries. All was very delicious. We sat at the table outside to watch all the action on the street. We were starving and the food came... More

Their food is very good, and I just love their Carolina BBQ sauce. I love it so much I have bought 2 1/2 gallons to bring home.
