Best deep fried catfish ever!! It was the special of the day, and I was lucky to be there. Over all, a laid-back, very informal bbq restaurant with some great food - indoor and outdoor seating.

Great brisket sandwich. Sweet potato casserole super. Great yummy food at a good price, which is not so easy in this Disneyland for Adults.

I love Moe's! So much so that I eat here 2-3 times per week. It seems to me that many people who have a problem with this place get hung up on this whole idea that all BBQ is the same and that all places should have all the same things on the menu all the time. Nothing could be... More

Excellent ribs and pulled pork, recommend sides of Cole slaw, Mac n cheese and corn bread. Try the sweet tea for your soft drink beverage choice. Great service and great prices for Vail!

My wife and I with our two sons went to Moe's July 3rd. It was about lunch time and there was a pretty decent crowd. Made me anticipate that I would have some really good BBQ. They were out of ribs already, I know it happens but at lunch the weekend of July 4th... were they not anticipating being a... More

They really know how to do Southern BBQ. Their ribs fall off the bone, slaw super churchy, and the Mac and cheese to top it off. In a town where everything is super pricy it's a great place to feed your whole family. I always get it to go because it can be more of a rowdy seen. But hands... More

Took family of 6 for casual dinner ( order at counter and then pick up food). We had some of everything... Ribs, pulled pork, smoked turkey. With platter you pick two sides and get a large piece of warm cornbread. Everyone was very happy with food.

I'm not real picky about most things but in my book there are certain "must-have's", and sausage and beef brisket on the menu at a BBQ joint fall into that category. However, the half a chicken was plentiful and tender and the pulled pork was equally delicious. And for Vail, Moe's is surprisingly affordable. Would we go back? Well, even... More

Cheap, tasty food with quick service and a casual dining feel. It's a bit out of the way compared to the restaurants on the main drag so it's definitely quieter if you just want to relax. There's no table service so you need to collect your food from the window when they call you.

Im from the south so It was okay. It wasn't bad. Service was excellent. But it wasn't great barbeque. It you are hungry, and there aren't a lot of options it works.
