This place knows how to do barbecue. Every time that I come out here for work, I must stop by this place. The guy who started this place got his barbecue root from the south. It really shows in the good he makes. The food here is great! Small little place but big taste. Make sure to stop by this... More

Our family is currently traveling the US via RV style. This journey will take two (2) years, which we are blogging on Facebook; "Happy Campers 227". We are exploring many attractions, activities and restaurants on this adventure using Trip Advisor. WoW! Glad we went to Mo's Smokehouse...The ribs with sweet Carolinas BBQ sauce was amazing. Good food & BBQ sauce!!!... More

We eat here every time we go to Pismo. We like the sampler plate. It comes with bbq ribs, chicken and pulled pork. The potato salad is really good.

We went to this BBQ place without any prior experience. We are from Indiana, and were with friends from Thousand Oaks California. We were celebrating some birthdays and getting together to watch the Super Bowl. I must say, I was very impressed with the food! The Tri-Tip Sandwich, Rib Platter, and Garlic fries were excellent. We were a party of... More

The decor of this restaurant is loosely modelled on a southern BBQ shack. Best ribs awards took the pride of place on the wall. Order your meal at the front counter and just pick a table and wait for your food to arrive. We ordered a mix of ribs, burger and BBQ samplers. The sampler is a big platter of... More

This place embodies the savory goodness of those funky places by the side of the road, or in bad parts of town, that have the most delicious, succulent barbecue ever. I'm picky about my barbecue, and most places don't make the grade. If you think Armadillo Willies is great barbecue, stay away, because you have no tastebuds. But if you... More

Order the Mo's Memphis Pork ribs for $ 22. 95 to go. It came with one corn muffin, baked beans and we got the coleslaw. The ribs had good flavor, meat comes off the bone and not dry at all. The side dished were delicious but wished they provided more in a bigger container.

If you're craving some good ole' fashion BBQ, you have to hit up Mo's! The taste is great and service is quick. This is a perfect place to grab a lunch on a beach day in Pismo.

Well I'll confess I don't know if it is an authentic Americana smokehouse or if its just for show. Either way we enjoyed the food and the surroundings. Its quite a skill having a place that looks grungy but clean at the same time......well done. Pick and pay at the counter then the food is brought to you. Unlimited soft... More

Absolutely delicious. FAST service. Well priced. Everything was delicious. You have to get your own table which can be tricky at busy times, but be patient. It's worth it. Do not miss this place!
