Our 2nd trip to Moe's (we visit Bangor from Canada to shop), no complaints. I had the ribs, they were fall-off-the-bone delicious. The peas & greens (black eyed peas and collard greens) were awesome. My daughter wasn't a fan of the potato salad, but enjoyed her pulled pork. My husband tried the catfish and thought it tasted a bit like... More

Due to the high ratings we expected a lot more . I should have read more reviews as I was looking for a much more exciting -atmosphere-experience. It was like going to Arby's or McDonald's ,you placed your order then found a seat. The counter person was very friendly and helpful . The brisket and the pulled pork was tasty... More

What a find! Smoked turkey and pulled pork hit the mark, baked beans were sweet with a nice touch of zing, and we enjoyed two daily specials of pinto beans w/okra and sweet potatoes and corn. Personally the Mac & cheese didn't do it for us but the vinegary coleslaw was a nice foil to the meats and the cornbread... More

Very happy with the quick service. Food was served hot and the cold salads kept seperate from hot items. My son wanted to use a knife to cut up the ribs because of braces. But once he saw how the meat melted from the bone he used alot of paper towel instead. I was worried my daughter would not like... More

I am a regular at Moe's in Bangor because not only is the food DELICIOUS, the customer service is TOP NOTCH. The owner, Dewey, is there all the time and is usually right out front with his employees! Staff is ALWAYS friendly and helpful. Have had other BBQ around town and nothing comes close. My only complaint is that they... More

My wife and I stopped here a couple of years ago on our way south from Canada. When we planned a trip to Acadia National Park this year, this was one of our planned stops. We love Moe's so much that we drove an hour up from Bar Harbor for lunch one day while there also. The food is amazing,... More

You don't need to go south for great BBQ. Being from Virginia, we have lots of places for BBQ. Moe's Original can hold its own with any of them. The pulled pork was tender and juicy, with just the right amount of bark. The sauce is spicy and flavorful. All of the sides were very good. The platter comes with... More

Simply delish! No other way to describe it. Pork chili, pulled pork, wings, beans all to die for...melt in your mouth meat. The white BBQ sauce is just unreal! But beware, this is not a sit down at your table and be waited on kinda place. You get your food at the counter and take back to your table...all in... More
