We shared the sampler platter that had had ribs, BBQ chicken and pulled pork on it. Also had coleslaw and baked beans. We added a small potato salad for $1 also. This was a great way to go as we had plenty of food and took leftovers too! We really liked it all. Cute atmosphere with various old license plates... More

A very basic eatery that serves great ribs and a nice choice of beers. Nothing fancy and the prices reflect this. Good portions and fast service. Some interesting photos of old BBQ places.

Visit Mo's every time we go to the coast. It is so good. The Ribs are fall off the bone tender, the pulled pork is great and the chicken is moist. Choice of barbecue sauces. The garlic fries are the bomb! Staff are friendly.

Mo's does excellent bbq 1/2 chickens and ribs, good beans, decent coleslaw, and delicious corn muffins. There's a choice of sauces, all of which are good. I ordered a meal through Yelp (Eat24), and it arrived quickly, hot and tasty. This place is a regular stop for me when passing through Pismo -- it's consistently good.

A must have pulled Pork. Not everyone these . First time I had one was in SOUTH CAROLINA . It was great. The town is Quaint, lots of shopping. And a place to have a beer or ice cream. Enjoy I sure did..

Very good barbecue I had the pork ribs. I normally eat baby back ribs so I can't really compare these to ether pork ribs but they were very good and they have many varieties of barbecue sauce to try. This was just a quick lunch combo so I did not try most of their food

Been here twice and both times had a great lunch! The tri tip and pulled pork sandwiches are excellent. Good choice of sauces. Fries were average and BBQ beans were good. Nice lunch place near the pier.

Oh yum, fantastic shredded pork sandwich with sweet, mild, or hot bbq sauce. Their chips are world famous, potato salad was good, Cole slaw was just okay. It's not fancy, but well worth it!!!

We ordered take-out from Mo's while we stayed at a hotel nearby. They delivered pretty quickly but the presentation is very basic. We ordered the Tri Tip which my hubby liked but I though was way too fatty and I had the Pulled Pork which was juicy and made the bread soggy (if you get delivery, have them separate it).... More
