Wow! Delicious!

Very casual place but OMG, the food is great! And very friendly service (which is so nice to experience). Their cornbread is outstanding. At other places, I don't usually like it so much, but Moe's is great ... almost like a cornbread cake. I'm munching on cornbread leftovers right now and it's... read more

There are no words to describe the food at Moe's, absolute perfection. I had the pulled pork, mac n cheese and collards. I only eat my Daddy's collards, never found a person that can cook them the way he does. I had to call and tell him that I found collards better than his. Needless to say, he is making... More

After reading the reviews about the amazing food, my husband and I decided to try it out. As all the other reviews say, it's not much to look at on the outside. In fact, I wasn't sure I wanted to eat there when we first drove up. But I am so glad we did! The atmosphere inside is fun and... More

This place is so so.... Was a bit pricey and skimpy, which I could live with if, it was all that... Only went there because 12 Bones was closed... They don't even carry a North Carolina bbq sauce... Not sure where the 'Original' comes into play as its a franchise in Al, TN & NC... But they do have Alabama... More

Okay....seriously the coleslaw they have is better than most people's entrees. I had the smoked turkey sandwich Bama style. Goodness Moe's I could eat my weight in this sandwich!! I'm glad I live like 1.5 hours away. The sandwich is definitely the best thing I've had in a long time. I will definitely be back!! Great staff friendly and helpful.... More

Yes, the outside is a little worn (but so am I) and the inside is a bar, BUT the smoked turkey platter was delicious and not expensive. Portion was generous without being obscene and the staff is friendly. I'll be back to try the brisket platter.

We always check TripAdvisor before deciding where to eat. We moved to Asheville one year ago and are trying various restaurants. The outside of this restaurant can make you keep driving by, but don't. Stop and enjoy great BBQ.

Don't be put off from the exterior. Place looks like a dump on the outside. Went with a group of eight friends. Came in, girl at counter was great. Very friendly and helpful. Ordered the wings. All I can say is WOW. Best I've ever had and I'm from Buffalo. They've won best wings three years in a row and... More
