My wife and I had the 4 rib special which was really good. Also had a craft beer which was great. The service was really fast. There's a good selection of bar-b-q food to try. We will go back again to try other dishes.

The restaurant is located on the main street. Well-resolved manner orders. Mo's Ribs - excellent. For one person just 1/2. Excellent salad coleslaw and muffin. Friends praised aware of their tacos and a sandwich. We strongly recommend this place!

I've only had the Sweet Carolina Ribs on both occasions I've been here (both in the same week) so I'll only speak to those. They are amazing. Fall off the bone meat smothered in sweet BBQ sauce and spiced just right. That's all you need out of Ribs. A full slab will feed 4 people plus they come with a... More

We had it all planned: Dinner at Mo’s in San Luis Obispo. We even scoped the place out the day before. Yes! But then we weren’t all that hungry and in the mood for a barbeque feast. But we didn’t want to miss out on Mo’s altogether - it had been on our list for at least two trips -... More

Mo's sets the bar for BBQ food in this location. Wow, what a treat for super BBQ meals at reasonable prices. All kinds of meats cooked in special sauces. Definitely a "must visit place" in Pismo Beach

We stopped for lunch looking to grab a sandwich - we were not disappointed. I had the shredded beef sandwich with BBQ sauce accompanied with potato salad. the beef was soft and tender - so flavoursome. You can have extra sauces from the station - a variety is on offer - try them all! My partner had garlic fries -... More

We come to Pismo about twice a year and we stop at Mo's at least once every time we come to town. The food is reasonably priced and it's dependably great food served up quickly and happily. We always get the fried green tomatos and my wife loves the chicken and ribs. The location is great and it is a... More

We drove from Los Angeles to Lockhart in Texas last year for great ribs. Who new they were a few hours drive north of LA.... Basic home style atmosphere but great food and some nice beers on tap. "Save a fish eat a pig" Would highly recommend if you are in the area.

We’ve little experience of american smokehouse food, but fancied an evening on the room balcony drinking beer and feasting on a take away, and having seen reviews of Mo’s took the plunge. We ordered a full rack of Memphis ribs and half a chicken, and should have realised that we’d probably over ordered, there was loads, with accompaniments of baked... More
