We LOVE Moe's Original BBQ

OK, so it's almost like they're not "small time" anymore because they have so many facilities now, but we just cannot get enough Moe's Original BBQ. Our main places of access are Vail and Eagle, Colorado. We eat a lot of More's and it's always absolutely great. I just placed a party order for... read more

The smoked chicken platter is huge and delicious. Sides are of a good size but not as oversized as at some of the restaurants we visited during our trip to Vail.

This was good BBQ and very reasonably priced. Not a lot of tables but you can take out. Good for quick meal that is easy and doesn't require reservations or getting dressed up.

Tiny, simple, big portions, TVs to watch games, good music, very good food, takeout. Great beans, pulled pork, tender turkey. Kids loved the Mac-n-cheese.

Good BBQ fare in Lionshead/Vail. Great value and quick in/out. Indoor and outdoor seating. Portions are not too big, just the right size. Collard greens side were particularly tasty.

From BBQ sandwich to a Shrimp Po Boy, Moe's doesn't disappoint. If you like to eat where the locals eat, try this place out. Good selection of beer (in bottles) and sweet tea, of course! Prices are good too for Vail. Atmosphere very relaxed, and servers are always friendly.

Since there are no other real BBQ joints in the area Moe's does a good trade. As BBQ goes it's just average. But, hey, some BBQ iis better than none!

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).
