Moe's BBQ

We tried to make the rounds with all the barbecue joints in the Asheville area while there and Moe's was the only one that rated a repeat visit. It's a really rustic little place, not much to look at but boy, they know their barbecue! You can eat inside or outside and they serve your food in little... read more

Fun and tasty place to eat. A little hard to locate, but once we did - were we happy! Friendly service, great draft beer choices, fine 'cue (could use some zestier sauces), delicious sides. Not at all crowded at 8pm on a Wednesday. Good way to start our stay in Asheville.

We had the best barbecue at Moe's. My uncle lives and Asheville and suggested we try this and so glad that we did. I had the pulled pork platter with collard greens and garlic mashed potatoes and it came with what looked like Texas toast but was corn bread which was very good. Fresh Iced tea with real lemon!

good fast friendly service and free soda fountain refills. Pulled pork sandwich, pulled pork platter , wings pulled chicken sandwich all were tasty. Their hot sauces need help as they were only tangy. Draft beer cold and fresh. Nice indoor or outdoor seating that lets you people watch.

We stopped at Moe's Original BBQ in Asheville, NC when we first arrived in town. We wanted something fast and very casual, which is what this place is. I would say this place is in the category of "a hole in the wall", but the food is good, bordering on very good. It is very rustic inside and not very... More

Moe's is definitely a bar atmosphere/appearance bordering on dumpy. Super reasonably priced with drinks included, and the bbq is pretty good, as are the sides. Tomato cucumber salad is a great light option. The corn bread is the best I've ever had. Portions are small compared to similar joints - but that may not be a bad thing. The only... More

Every time I eat here, I love it. Doesn't matter what I order. The cornbread is the best on the planet, too. I have tried pretty much everything on the menu and have yet to be disappointed.

Places like this are the reason we use trip advisor. The exterior of Moes looks like a somewhere I wouldn't give a second glance and would drive right on by. Once you step inside you realise it's all part of its charm. We went on a Sunday lunch time and the place was heaving. We ordered as soon as we... More

My wife and I ate here tonight based primarily on the reviews I read on TripAdvisor. I was not the least bit disappointed. I had pulled pork, slaw, beans, collard greens and corn bread and everything was very tasty. I knew I was in the right place when we walked through the door because the place was full. Like others...

If you are looking for a upscale dining experience or healthy dining options this is not that! This is a rough around the edges BBQ joint. You walk in the front door and order at the counter. They will call your name and you come get the food. I had to hunt for BBQ sauce and silverware (plastic). The bottles... More
