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.

I've been here a couple of times. They have alligator, it was awesome. They also serve craft beer, I had a Three Floyds Gumballhead!

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

Good food, great atmosphere. And Dog Friendly (outside). Loved it. I had an awesome salad, and my husband had the frog legs. Both delicious.

Moe Joe's is a bit different from any other restaurant. The cuisine is Cajun, so many of their offerings are spicy. The place is decorated to look like Bourbon Street, including beads on each chair that patrons are welcome to take home. The wait staff have always been very helpful in describing how dishes are prepared. I am not a... More

Our dinning experience at MoJo's was excellent! It was very late when family came in on a Thursday evening. MoJo's not only had great food but long hours, excellent servers and a very nice bar. Our experience at MoJo's was very good!

Our family enjoyed celebrating a birthday on a Friday evening. Our 13 year old son is especially interested in spicy food and unusual meats. So finally we found a place where he doesn't mind hanging out with the parents. He liked the alligator bites and the turtle soup. As we entered there were fresh oysters being served to a happy...
