We stumbled upon Moe Joe's looking for something beside typical burgers on a Saturday afternoon - and had a great meal. We all picked Cajun-themed foods - which was a treat since we needed gluten-free and dairy-free allergy options (e.g., they grilled the alligator appetizer instead of deep-frying it). The teenage boys devoured the wild boar burgers. The rest of... More

Food and service was outstanding. The only negative is that they don't take reservations so the wait may be over an hour, but it's worth it.

We revisited Moe Joe's over the holiday season for drinks and were extremely disappointed. We sat at a table in the bar area. WE WERE COMPLETELY IGNORED! Although we tried, we could not gain the attention of the two female bartenders who were so self-absorbed, fully focused on flirting with their handful of male patrons seated at the bar. We... More

Service is extremely slow! Do not go here if you are in a hurry! Even if there is someone at the door to greet you or seat you (which usually there is not) you still wont see a waitress for a good 10 minutes after that! Try to have your entire order ready when someone does come! Food is ok,... More

I live in Plainfield and Moe Joe's is one of my families favorite restaurants. It has a fairly small dining room, but also has a nice bar area where you can eat, as well as outdoor seating in the summer. The food is very good and the portions are large. The service is sometimes a little slow when it is... More

One of the best cajun restaurants around the Chicagoland area! Everything I've had there has been very good! Love the gumbo and the selection of craft beers! Muffalatta is outstanding, and the best is their chips! Could eat those for days!

Had a a great afternoon in Moe Joe's great atmosphere for just chilling in a bar and good food. Staff were really friendly, good music, and great vibe all round, even a short power out couldnt stop the fun. a real mix of food options, although i went for Gator burger a first for me and well worth it.

I ate here in July for the first time and have returned 10'times. I love the food and atmosphere so much I can't stop going here. I recommend this place for a real New Orleans experience.

Moe Joe's has some killer Louisiana food, and a very, very good burger. I tend to go there way to much, and its become my "go-to" place in downtown Plainfield. I will warn you, that after about 7pm, the music goes up, and it very fun... meaning its not the place for a quiet romatic dinner at the bar, or... More
