Try and walk past once you've smelt the BBQ

We tried Mo's from the BBQ smell as we walked past. While it looks a little cheap and diner-ish you couldn't fault the food. The menu had a good selection and the food when it came out was tasty. Large portions and would definitely visit again if in the area.

I had the tri trip and pork ribs at Moe's and I have to say that they were just okay. I didn't really care for the corn bread it was a little dry and I didn't really like the beans. The girl working in the dining area wasn't very friendly. I wouldn't eat there again and wouldn't recommend it unless... More

The smoke flavor was great! The place is small, but the food is worth the short wait in line & cramped space.

I was introduced to tri tip years ago when I lived on the central coast. So naturally while overnighting in SLO I needed some tri tip. I wanted to like Mos more than I did, nice location, relaxed setting etc. But the the tri tip sandwich just wasn't that good. The meat wasn't that tender and the bun wasn't prepared... More

They can do take out and delivery doesn't start until 4 pm.... I got take out so I can eat comfortably where ever I choose, also I'm to big for the seating they have inside. I ordered the ribs coleslaw beans garlic fries and pulled pork sandwhich. It was good. I wish it was more saucy. Good thing my friend... More

Came to Mo's whilst staying in pismo. We don't really have these type of places in the UK so I was eager to give it a try. The staff were really nice and helpful and the food was amazing. Deff would go back.

On your way to the Pismo Pier, grab a great meal at Mo's. Every time I go there I try a different BBQ sandwich w/sides. The price is right and it's a great way to enjoy Pismo Beach!

Evening dinner (supper) with the family. My wife, myself, our son (age 6), and daughter (15.5 months). We got the sampler for around $19 it had shredded pork (pulled pork basically), ribs (menu said Philly ribs, but we asked for the Memphis ribs and they allow the substitution), and 1/4 chicken. Our son loved the shredded pork, it was pretty... More

Great BBQ! Everything offered, different sauces, yummy sides and the onion rings were the best. Walking by you can smell this place then seeing the dishes on the tables, it completely changed our mind from the fish and chips next door.

The custom hamburgers were great. The service was exceptional! The french fries are to die for, and the barbecue is a must when you visit!
