In town for a vacation visiting family and being a Nola and Creole-Cajun fanatic I was surprised when my brother in law told me about Moe Joe's in Plainfield. The food was superb. I had the crawfish po-boy and it was layed out. Plenty of crawfish lightly fried with fresh lettuce and chunks of tomato. The remoulade was wonderful that... More

which is exactly what you'll need to dine there. Food is good, it's the constant turn over in staff and always a wait for drinks or food or anything!!! Good beer selection and the chicken is kickin!!

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

By far this is my favorite place to eat at when I'm in town. The restaurant has a fun atmosphere and great ambiance. Definitely some of the best food in the area! Highly recommended!

Really good food, and some decent deals most nights. The only negative is that it is sometimes really loud due to the music being unnecessarily loud.

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.

Group of four adults dining at 7pm on a Sunday. Not sure if my son made a reservation, but we were seated right away. Only 1 other table available in the dining room. Service was prompt and friendly. Not super noisy. Great Bourbon Street atmosphere. We were not aware we had a Cajun/Caribbean restaurant so close to home and were... More

Our food was good and somewhat unique. This is a bar so it can be noisy and a little crowded as the night goes on, also dark inside.

First things first, Its definitely a bar. It's dark, brooding and if you go at the wrong time has a tendency to be loud. The food however is delicious. Don't miss their Boar burger and alligator appetizer. I'm drooling just thinking about them.
