Good food and loved their sweet tea. Excellent food for the price. I got the Cuban sandwich and husband got the pulled pork. Sides of potato salad and baked beans were great!

We got ribs, barbecue sandwiches and a fried cat fish platter. Food was great and extremely reasonably priced - $10 for 5 or 6 pieces of fried catfish, a soft drink and two sides. Service was quick and friendly. If you are looking for Southern comfort food - this is the place to go in Vail!

Excellent choice for one evening's dining. We went based on a previous-day conversation with a local diner there, who assured us their was the best BBQ in Vail. We were not disappointed.

We stayed in a condo right above Moe's and could smell the food cooking every morning. It was all we could do not to eat here every day. We did eat here twice and both times it was tasty. The two highlights were the ribs and the side mac-n-cheese.

Tasty, fresh BBQ. Moist pulled pork smoked to perfection, mild jalapeño cornbread. Friendly staff and the only place that we found genuine Southern sweet tea!

A big plus from other BBQ joints is that they have other form the usual sides that change daily (i had melon - cucumber, squash). Big plus!! I am very picky about ribs and would not rate them anywhere near excellent. The pulled pork however was great, the lemonade excellent. Friendly staff and a great laid back decor that i... More

Very small, but very good food at a reasonable price something hard to find in a resort setting. We enjoyed all of the food that we had here.

I had smoked turkey with beans and potato salad. They have great new side dishes everyday including the standard barbecue sides. My husband had a squash casserole as his side.
