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.

We eat in Bangor several times a week. The service here is fine, but the food isn't outstanding and it's overpriced for what it is. The last time we went, we looked at the prices and just couldn't justify the price for average food. Instead, we headed over to The Legacy Sandwich Shop on State - their food is consistently... More

Based on the No. 1 rating we were expecting more and were disappointed. The order taker was helpful in explaining the menu but if you are expecting a fancy meal, this is not the place. Everything is on plastic. I had the large rib platter and there was a lot of meat on the ribs, but the flavor wasn't anything... More

We had the dual haul home package with half turkey/chicken. The sides were mac&cheese and slaw. The meats were awesome, slaw great and Mac not do good. Overall this place has great barbecue at good prices. I will definitely be back again .

We are a long way from Memphis. This is decent BBQ considering the location. I have been in several times and will return. They are inconsistent, but seem to be getting better at that. very good service. worth going. but if you have the time, a drive to Winterport is worth your while.
