The food is always good and the portions are pretty good sized, but $13 for a bowl of gumbo is a little more than I like to pay when I can go to Heaven on Seven and get better gumbo for $7 for the same size bowl.

They have a great selection of beer and the bar atmosphere makes you feel like your... More

Before I ordered the Ahi Tuna I asked the server how often they get fish. She indicated that it is flown in fresh every day so I ordered it. However, the Ahi Tuna had a really strong taste which indicated it was not very fresh. They may get it every day but the piece I was served was not one... More

We went to Moe Joe's a year or so ago after seeing it on Chicago's Best, but now have been back once and done takeout once. The drinks are really tasty. I especially like the Nola drink with the edible flower. |The beer selection is great too, Two Floyd's on tap and other Mardi Gras favorites. I have gotten the... More

Moe Joes has the best fried chicken in the area . You can choose sides which is great. Problem is their. " image ". Girls gone wild type is not conducive to good service. It's pretty hit and miss, unfortunately can be more miss.
