Yummy

Great little place for a quick and casual meal. The only place in Vail you will find sweet tea and cornbread!!! Very casual atmosphere which is welcome after eating in so many upscale restaurants. My whole family enjoyed it very much! Potato Salad is delicious!

Despite good prices food was average. Very very fatty meat. I had the brisket (very fatty), Mac and cheese (cold!) and potato salad (ok). Overall not recommended

Our visit to Moe's was a pleasant surprise, ribs were juicy and had amazing sauce. Mac and cheese was great, other sides are also well worth it, pork and beans, corn bread. The winner was the pulled pork, with the ribs a close second. Value for the food was very good and the kids menu helpful. Place is small and... More

I consider myself sort of an expert on BBQ and this place was very impressive, not at all what I expected for Vail. Portions were generous and the price was fairly reasonable. I love the fact that they smoke on site and the menu gives a good enough variety to please just about anyone. Brunswick stew and the Red Beans... More

We had takeout for lunch from Moe's. The ribs, pulled pork, and turkey were all very good. The slaw was sweeter than I care for. The sauce was nice and spicy. The beans were good as well. A nice lunch.

Happy place, limited seating (about 4 tbles and bar area) terrific ribs served in platters with 2 sides. Very reasonable. Also serves wings, pulled pork and other sides. Terrific value.

Local place. Decent barbeque. Not much for atmosphere. Good place to grab a beer after skiing. Food fits the atmosphere.

Moe's is very small place and so is the price. One of the best values in Vail for food. The limited menu is filled with 'comfort' food items. Service is fast. I always eat a Moe's when in town.

Small place and out of the way. It often fills up early at dinner time. Great sides and super meats and sauce. Prices are reasonable.

not only are the sandwiches great, but I love the sides, like the banana pudding with vanilla wafers and when they have them in season, the fried green tomatoes - pick up a sandwich and sides for one or for the whole family...
