This place was fast, friendly, and food was great!! The slaw has a pickle taste that is so good and I could eat a pan of the cornbread! We will definitely go back!

“Great BBQ in a clean super friendly environment”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2014

We had lunch here last week and we were all so impressed with the food (great pulled pork, ribs, and sides like mac and cheese and collared greens and beer cheese soup). As a matter of fact, it was so good, we returned two days later for another lunch.

“Greens & Wings”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2014

I would never have believed this was part of a chain! Really...I can be such a snob about chain restaurants but... Some of the best I have ever had! I have eaten BBQ across the US and aside from a nameless little catfish/bbq operation located inside an old auto shop in Ohio (of all places!), Moe's is definitely giving *that other place* in Memphis a run for its money. I would say the Ribs are not the best ever, but the Wings and Chicken (and those beautiful, beautiful greens!) definitely hit the perfect prep/salt/smoke/clean taste that all bbq should aspire to.
Not overly brightly lit, this is a place you can definitely feel comfortable bringing your kids and still enjoy a craft beer with dinner while not spending an arm and leg. Very casual and tidy dining area. While we noticed a packed house (with a culturally diverse, non touristy patronage) we never saw more than 2 employees (cook and cashier)....and the place was running FLAWLESSLY. Just goes to show that efficiency is really a lost art. A place as busy as Moe's running without nary a speed bumb in service, quality or housekeeping... must have a great in house policy. These people just know BBQ! (AND GREENS- DID I MENTION THE GREENS?!)

“Consistently AMAZING”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2014

My family has been to moes a lot. I reviewed them not long after they opened when we first went and fell in love. After today's spectacular visit I felt compelled to review them again. It truly is wonderful. We have tried the pulled pork sandwich, ribs, wings, catfish, every side option, the banana pudding and the Mississippi mud pie. Today I was most impressed with the sides, that they could live up to the amazing meats. They taste like a granny made them (true southerners with an amazing cooking "granny" who's had 50+ years practice will understand that) It's small, it's crowded, sometimes you have to wait for a seat but who cares... It's that good. Really if those things bother you they have great "tailgate" take home type meals (that we also have had).

“Best Pork in Town!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2014

Ok so I love BBQ and I eat it everywhere and by far Moe's has the best pork bbq in town. They also have amazing mac-n-cheese and soups. To make everything even better they have this sweet cornbread that is just simply my favorite period. Prices are good at ten dollars for your meat, 2 sides, and a drink. On mondays they have kids eat free which is also good too.
