“Best BBQ west of the Mississippi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2010

I have not eaten at every BBQ place in the west but this is possibly the best BBQ west of the Mississippi. They not only have great sauce but excellent cornbread as well.

“Great ribs”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2010

Can't really rate the experience inside the restaurant since we ordered our ribs to go. We ordered the rib combo, and all three flavors were very good. The corn bread needed a little butter, but it might have tasted better if we actually ate at the restaurant and had it served fresh. Reasonable prices. To sum it up, we were happy with our order. :)

“Best ribs we've ever tasted”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2009

We called into Mo's for lunch one afternoon during a 3 day stay stopover at Pismo. What a wonderful surprise - we checked out all the awards along the walls from annual cook offs and then decided to share a 3/4 rack of slow roasted ribs in a smoked hickory sauce, with garlic fries and coleslaw, all washed down with a Budlight. WOW, what a taste sensation - we were so wrapped up in our food heaven that we forgot to buy a couple of bottles of the sauce to bring home.!! We'll just have to go back sometime.

“Pretty good place to eat.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2009

I like the pulled BBQ pork, the Chicken and the Ribs. I have been here several times over the past 10 years and have always enjoyed it.
