Really enjoyed the pulled pork, cornbread, beans and squash casserole (all for $10)The cornbread was the best I've had in a long time. Wife also had the pulled pork and loved it. Don't let the old KFC building fool you. It is nice and clean inside with a good atmosphere. This was our first time here but it won't be... More

Great bbq in a clean family style atmosphere. Its counter service but dont let that fool or deter you. Had ribs- rubbed and smoked. Sauce it kept warm on the side. They were very very good. Speaking of side-mac and cheese was from scratch no velveeta no thick sticky sauce. Instead it was homemade cheese goodness. Collard greens soft but... More

My wife and I heard about this place through a friend. It's a short drive from our airport hotel so we decided to try it out. We both came away saying that this place is outstanding for BBQ. I'm a wing lover so I had to try them, these are the best wings I've ever had. I couldn't believe how... More

Good quality BBQ food in a no frills setting. We had the ribs for 2 with two sides, which were all very tasty and reasonably priced. If you are looking for tablecloths and fine dining this won't be the place for you - if you are looking great tastes and an authentic American experience give this place a try.

On a recent evening in Bangor, my wife and I stopped to try Moe's Original BBQ, as this genre of food isn't widespread in this part of the country. The restaurant is styled similar to joints in other parts of the country, with a counter that takes your order, accepts your payment, and calls your name to retrieve your meal... More

The food is so good that my husband hummed through the entire meal. I had their pulled pork platter that had their corn bread and he had their pulled pork sandwich with grits as a side. VERY GOOD food with helpful, friendly staff. We went at an odd time and there were many waiting for take out orders. The only... More

Under Dewie's competent management, Moe's serves up a consistently good product. Located in a converted KFC the interior is bright and functional; but it's the food I'm showing up for. Great ribs, awesome pulled pork, and a long list of sides which really make the meal. Casual dining at its best!

We ended up here by chance. We just ordered some ribs from a special and gave it a shot. There was little sauce on the ribs, so I grabbed the bottles they have top add more thinking I might use a whole bottle myself, but when I bit into them I was surprised. The seasoning rub was very good. I... More

Came here before a country concert (of course) food was a little above average. BBQ sauce was good. Sides seemed ore made out if a can. Also too, it was 5pm on a Sunday and they had already ran out of ribs and chicken. They only real standout, the food came out super fast.
