Good BBQ for California

Well we aren't in Kansas City or Texas here, but Mo's was pretty good BBQ. Our group had ribs and pulled pork sandwiches to go. The food was tasty and served up quickly. The prices are decent and the decor is typical for a

I've been to BBQ joints all over the US and this one had excellent pulled pork. I highly recommend stopping there and giving them a try. Nice, casual place near the pier with excellent service.

Grew up in the midwest and very partial to BBQ from the SE coast to Texas. What a delight to find such exceptional BBQ in both SLO and then also in Pismo Beach. Highly recommended - IF you really like BBQ.

Being from Australia, Mo's was exactly what we expected and more. The BBQ was brilliant one of the most memorable meals we had along our trip of California.

I like Mo's bar b que because as they say Mo'e knows beef and chicken but Mo's doesn't do fish. For those that aren't especially fond of fish this is the place to eat when you visit Pismo Beach. Nice bar b que and the side dishes are good too especially there beans.

The food was delicious and the staff was nice. They serve big portions. If you can't decide what you want, get the sampler, it's big enough for 2, and you get a taste of the ribs, chicken and pulled pork.

Ribs fantastic, wine very good. Service excellent. Hayman (not correct spelling, sorry), was friendly and attentive - best server we have had in almost three weeks in the states.

I've eaten at the Mo's in SLO and Pismo and you can't beat the food! The ribs are great. I tried the shredded pork sandwich and it is awesome! I like how they have containers of BBQ sauce that you can try and add more to your food. Everything from sweet to spicy!! Yummy and their prices are very affordable.
