If you like BBQ, this is pretty much it for Pismo Beach. The food is good, the service is good and the BBQ is wonderful. They offer a variety of sauces to go with their various offerings.

We've traveled all throughout the lower states and dined on BBQ in Memphis and Mississippi, and this BBQ is right up there with them. Pricey, but portions are large so we tend to share a half rack and some pulled pork sandwiches between two adults and two children. Lots of yummy sauces!

My hubby and me didn't expect such a good Cheeseburger and Spare Rips - those were the best since we started our RV-tour through the West Coast! When you are in you have to try the KILLER GARLIC FRIES - you can get addicted to!

I love barbecue and was really looking forward to eating at Mo's, given the reviews I'd read. Unfortunately it was not as good as I'd anticipated. The ribs were tough, and the sauce was mediocre. In fact, the "spiciness" tasted like they'd taken some regular sauce and just added some tabasco sauce. Not good if you know anything about barbecue.

WE stayed in a nearby hotel and witnessed one of the cooks, in the back of the restaurant, giving free tri tips over the fence to a lady in her car!!!

The ribs were tender, fell off the bone and were juicy. I ordered a full rack but wished I had ordered more because I could really taste the freshness. The side dishes were also very good. There's another Mo's Smokehouse in Chico that I might visit soon.

We ordered from this restaurant through MenuClub, which is a local delivery service in Pismo Beach and surrounding area. The ribs were excellent (Philthy Phil's) with a good sauce, not too sweet, and some vinegar in it. The beans were sickeningly sweet, but they were the only issue. Potato salad was good, cole slaw was good, nice cornbread and nice... More

This is one of those places that wandering TV hosts love to visit. The décor is faux Southern kitsch but the food is quite tasty! You can tell that a good deal of time goes into the preparation of the meat and the sauce is really good. I had the pulled pork and couldn't have been more pleased. The only... More
