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.

We ordered 4 tritip sandwiches to go and not one of them was edible. So tough and gristle and fat in every bite. Why anyone would give them any of their hard earned money is a mystery to me. The worst tritip sandwich I have ever tried to eat, there was no way anyone could have eaten this crap they... More

We ordered four of the Tri-tip sandwiches to go. We were so VERY disappointed. They advertise that the tri-tip is tender....what a joke. It was full of fat and gristle. You couldn't even bite into the sandwich without pulling the meat right off the roll because it was all stuck together with the fat and gristle. Most of the meat... More

Simply fantastic BBQ and yummy sides. The best informal dining in Pismo. They'll give you some wet-wipes for those sticky paws you'll get. Go!

Pretty good BBQ and a cool place to eat in general. Not expensive. I liked the open air and friendly staff.

What a nice surprise to find this great bbq place in Pismo. The ribs are amazing and the sides are good too (and super cheap). A few nice beers on tap. I'll come back next time I'm in town.
