“Cannot wait to eat there again!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

I loved this little place...Everything from the wood picnic tables outside and the Rastafarian music streaming through the music. And of course the food! It was reasonably priced with a good amount of food and FLAVORFUL! I didn't get to have any, but they seemed to have some good beer on tap too. Oh, and super customer service! Other stuff: It's a small place with no onsite bathroom (there's a single public stall for Men and Women a couple of doors down) so be weary if you're going with kids.

“Great, fast BBQ in the mountains”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013 via mobile

I am not a big fan of bbq but it must have been due to the fact that I haven't had any as good as this place. We ordered a variety of things and sides all of which were excellent: juicy, flavorful, and without those chewy, inedible bits I hate. They are fast but not to fast. What I mean is that they take their time to make it well. Plan on waiting a little bit for your food so if no tables are open when you get there, don't worry yet. You can also take it to go and sit outside in the plaza areas it the weather permits. Their Mac and cheese is really good as a side. And their cornbread is far from the boring typical stuff at other bbq places. All of this at more reasonable prices than the other places nearby.

“Great value (and food) in Vail Colorado”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

I've been to Vail many times, this was the first time that I had even eaten at Moe's and boy, was I surprised. There is nothing fancy here. You order at the bar, hopefully find a place to sit down and get your food when they call your name. I ate here twice. The half chicken, smoked turkey sandwich and wings are all great...best that I've had in Vail. The prices are awesome. You won't break the bank here, unlike many of the seriously, overrated, restaurants in Vail. But my favorite thing was the vinegar-based, cole slaw. You don't get that in the Northeast.

“A good meal in short order”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

BBQ is a favorite of our family. MOes is close by but as I had little time to enjoy it was nice to order and run. Sandwichs are great during any season!
