Good, consistent BBQ that won't break the bank

This is what you expect when you visit a BBQ joint. It is a little noisy, full of interesting characters, has a good beer selection, and feels comfortable. I really enjoy the vibe of this place. It is small, but if you're lucky enough to get a seat you can dig in to some good eats and drinks and... read more

We ordered the family pack to go. The meat was delicious, as was the bread. I highly recommend trying the jalapeno corn bread! For our sides, we got baked beans which were good but not excellent, and mac & cheese which was awful! All in all, I'd rate this a decent meal. I've had better barbecue, but the reasonable priced...

While it certainly isn't the greatest BBQ I've ever eaten, Moes was very good and you can't beat their location. The staff was friendly and the prices were excellent compared to much of Vail. I would definitely eat there again.

I've been eating at Moe's for over 6 years now, and crave it every time I leave Vail. Consistently delicious food! I tend to stick to the same thing, hehe, but it's just so good! Turkey is well-cooked and juicy. Cut into chunks, not pulled - that's key for me. Their vinegar-based BBQ sauce was a new thing for me,... More

Fast walk up service, friendly bartender, cold IPA and hot pork ribs with 2 sides. Real reasonable prices anywhere, especially in Vail. We had take out rib dinner the following Saturday back at camp.

This order at the window BBQ joint is just what our family was looking for. Amidst the many fine dinning options in Vail, Moes offers a great value and excellent food. Highly recommended for lunch or families looking for a hearty meal that is not going to cost an arm and a leg.

First came the Crappy service, then came the crappy food, then came the crappy in the toilet. Could of had a better fish meal if I had gone diving into a local stream and just bitten the head off a trout raw... How in the world does this place get a top ten ranking from Tripadvisor? Maybe foreign travelers just... More

Ate at Moe's and we had a variety of food from Pulled Pork Sandwiches to wing and ribs. It was a very good place for a quick sandwich.

The pulled pork was very tender, however I did not care for the barbeque sauce. Nothing was wrong with it, just not my taste. However, the baked beans were awesome with bits of jalapenos. I strongly disliked one of the staff persons who used the same rag to wipe around the trashcan to also wipe down the tables.

When you see a door propped open and a line out around the building, you know it has to be good. But if you are there at the end of the day, you may risk not getting to sample this great BBQ pulled pork, ribs or chicken. We felt bad for the people behind us. Because when we ordered the... More
