We came here for lunch and had the Pulled Pork sandwich and the very tasty homemade potato chips. This was our second time here and again weren't disappointed. Last time we had the fries so this time went for the homemade potato chips and WOW they were really fresh and good... Nice & crispy...

The first place I wanted to eat on this trip to Pismo Beach was Mo's. I had the shredded pork sandwich, homemade chips and a pitcher of beer. It lived up to what I was expecting. I would recommend Mo's to anyone.

We decided to take our friends to Mo's since it had been awhile since we've been there. We ordered 2 slabs of ribs along with the garlic fries. Everything we ordered was excellent. The ribs were the best we've had in the area. Everyone loved the Carolina sweet sauce the best. The fries were had the perfect amount of garlic... More

We were wandering around the beach area stores and shops. It was mid afternoon and I needed a little something to eat since we hadn't had lunch. We stopped here to see what they had. They had BBQ beans, and I asked for a taste, as sometimes the BBQ flavor just isn't right for me. Well, it was wonderful; my... More

The food was very good and they had a very nice selection of sides. The line moved fast and there is a lot of places to sit once you get inside.

Mo's is a place my husband and I must stop at every time we come to Pismo. It never disappoints. The pulled chicken sandwich is delicious...and messy, but it wouldn't be BBQ if it wasn't.

This is in San Luis Obisbo - and although they had changed locations since we were there last - they have kept the same recipes and have wonderful pulled pork - with that cole slaw on top! Manager was very nice and food excellent!

We pretty much eat here every time we come to Pismo. The location is perfect... Right on the Main Street by the pier. Prices are not bad to feed a family of 4. Best of all the food is great and mostly hand made. The fried green tomatos tasted like they came from a box but the rest of the... More

Happened to be there when the kids were all dressed for Halloween - wall-to-wall people - were pleasantly surprised to even find a table available. We got BBQ ribs, lime chicken tacos, and BBQ chicken sandwich. Really good honey butter for the corn muffin. Loved the BBQ sauce. Staff all friendly even though the place was super busy. Served quickly.... More

My Wife and I dropped in for a quick bite during the late afternoon/early evening and went for the pulled chicken and pork sandwiches. Both excellent choices made with the house cole slaw on top. Service was personal and friendly and the food was very good. If only more fast food joints were like Mo's - the business would be... More
