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.

We went here after seeing recommendations on trip advisor and were not disappointed. We had the BBQ ribs with garlic fries which were so good. Definitely one of a kind, would definitely eat here again.

My daughter and I ventured over to Mo's from the Sea Venture where we stayed for a couple of nights for lunch this past Monday. We shared the Pulled Pork sandwich which was delicious with lots of BBQ sauce. Our side was the Baked Beans and we ordered the Garlic Fries, kinda pricey at $5/basket but oh so good! Mo's... More

We split the rib combo and pulled pork. The entrees were tender and full of smokey flavor. Only concern is that they cooled off very quickly, because this is an open air restaurant. The sides were great, especially the potato salad. I would go back there in a minute.

Stopped at Mo's for the highly reviewed Garlic Fries. They definitely didn't disappoint !! It seemed that those eating the BBQ were enjoying themselves. I liked the ambiance and the staff seemed friendly enough.

This place knows how to do barbecue. Every time that I come out here for work, I must stop by this place. The guy who started this place got his barbecue root from the south. It really shows in the good he makes. The food here is great! Small little place but big taste. Make sure to stop by this... More

Our family is currently traveling the US via RV style. This journey will take two (2) years, which we are blogging on Facebook; "Happy Campers 227". We are exploring many attractions, activities and restaurants on this adventure using Trip Advisor. WoW! Glad we went to Mo's Smokehouse...The ribs with sweet Carolinas BBQ sauce was amazing. Good food & BBQ sauce!!!... More

We eat here every time we go to Pismo. We like the sampler plate. It comes with bbq ribs, chicken and pulled pork. The potato salad is really good.

We went to this BBQ place without any prior experience. We are from Indiana, and were with friends from Thousand Oaks California. We were celebrating some birthdays and getting together to watch the Super Bowl. I must say, I was very impressed with the food! The Tri-Tip Sandwich, Rib Platter, and Garlic fries were excellent. We were a party of... More

The decor of this restaurant is loosely modelled on a southern BBQ shack. Best ribs awards took the pride of place on the wall. Order your meal at the front counter and just pick a table and wait for your food to arrive. We ordered a mix of ribs, burger and BBQ samplers. The sampler is a big platter of... More
