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.

Great food and great views! We stayed next door, and I recommend the ribs and wonderful Southern-style sides.

The food at Moe's is delicious- and the line goes out the door- so everything is cooked fresh and kept moving. The Family Pack Double-Wide feeds 3 hungry people or 4 moderately hungry people- gives you 2 sides (we had southern style slaw and mac-n-cheese) and a pound of pork (or chicken or beef your choice) and four slices of...

You can smell Moe's from a block away - great little BBQ site. We tried BBQ chicken and turkey. Both were excellent! Large portions (we had platters). Pricing was quite affordable - which is not typical for Vail. Recommended!

Asked a local where they go for a beer and they sent us to Moe's. Much to our surprise it is the same Moe's we go to when visiting family in Alabama so you know it's got good Que! Had the BBQ Pork with potato salad, beans and their veggie special of the day - sweet potato casserole! Sat at... More

In Vail there are a lot of upscale gourmet style restaurants. We wanted a low key, fun, family restaurant. Moe's is very tasty and inexpensive. Definitely worth stopping in. The cinnamon apples were delish and the BBQ was great!

Amazing food! Love their BBQ sauce, great menu selection. The turkey was amazing and they had hot links on special as well. The mac and cheese is incredible! Nice view as well of Lion's Head. Great patio to sit on during the summer months.

Excellent sandwich (had the smoked chicken) coleslaw that wasn't your average coleslaw!! Excellent meal! I didn't hear a complaint from anyone in my group.
