Great for a quick feed

This little place is great for a quick casual feed. It can be hard to find a table but the food is yummy and relatively cheap (for Vail).

Had lunch here on our last day. Very informal place with a nice area to sit outside and take in the sun. The pulled pork sandwich was good as were the baked beans. My wife really enjoyed the Cuban pulled pork sandwich. Overall the food is good and the atmosphere is ok. If you are looking for an informal place... More

You would not think anything of this unassuming tiny restaurant, but from what they say Vail is the original. It probably seats 40-50 inside, and the same outside for the nice sunny days. The menu is what you would expect from a BBQ joint. "quick and painless" All the standards are there, but get there early cause when its gone...its... More

Somewhat small 2nd floor BBQ joint, inexpensive but delicious BBQ, a very pleasant surprise in this upscale area. Orders are taken up front, then you sit and wait for your name to be called. Small full-service bar. We had turkey ($11 per pound) which was moist and tasty- not on the dry side like you typically find with other BBQ.... More

Loved the ribs and straightforward atmosphere. Not exactly a sophisticated venue but if you come off the slopes and need some solid food and a beer and dont want to pay Vail prices, you could do a lot worse than stop at Moes.

This is a good family place. WONDERFUL BBQ, super sides & an easy place to be. Come in from the ski slopes or just walk in. Order & then pick up & sit down to eat. The staff is friendly & helpful; the restaurant is clean & you can’t beat the atmosphere. The portions are big & prices are reasonable.... More
