Great barbeque!

Real authentic southern barbeque, including collard greens and great grilled corn bread. Low key, casual, and very reasonably priced (for Vail).

This is the best BBQ in Vail. Great Food at a Good price!!!! Make sure to get the banana pudding! If you can't make it to Vail make sure to eat in Eagle.

My wife and kids were whooped after a day on the mountain so I got Moe's to go. Good BBQ, the turkey was very moist. I got it to go, took it back to the room and we had a balcony dinner. By far the best deal on a meal the entire trip.

Really enjoyed the BBQ. Kids loved the Chicken Fingers and wife --- who can be a collard greens snob --- really enjoyed the greens.

Ribs that fall off the bone are overcooked and the connective tissues have been heated to the point that they break down. the tips should come loose but not the center. These ribs were done perfectly, seasoned nicely, and the sauces were great. I am a BBQ/smoking snob and these were some of the best I have ever had. Definitely... More

Went super late in the day and the staff was so laid back fun it was absolutely amazing food. Kids played outside on the patio and mom and dad sat and relaxed. Food is prepared daily fresh, and when they are out they are out for the day.

This was some really good southern style BBQ. The sides were outstanding. I had never had black eyed peas and greens cooked together. We'll be looking for that recipe.

We eat BBQ on a regular basis and this ranks with some of the best in the country! We had catfish, pulled pork and the wings, all outstanding, but the wings were our favorite. We were there at happy hour and a pound of these treats was only $6.50, and 24 oz. PBR'S were only $3. The sides didn't rank... More

The place was hopping and nothing fancy but Mo's delivers on quality and quantity. The pulled pork was really good and the beans and mac and cheese were tasty. Highly recommend!

Oh my! We discovered this small joint last summer by mistake, full of locals, so that tells you you are in the right spot... and we return to it every time we are in Vail. The ribs and chicken wings don't get better than these, not even in Texas (seriously!). The corn bread is awesome and my boys love the... More
