Perhaps the best BBQ I've ever had. Moist, very flavorful, and plentiful. Got wings as well which were good, but BBQ was so much better. Location is in the Lionshead shopping area, close to everything. Great place for a game, or casual lunch or dinner.

I have high barbeque standards, but this was pretty decent fare. Fast service, good happy hour specials and outdoor seating options.

My husband and I had lunch here on a Saturday. After a short wait in line to order, we both ordered pulled sandwich. He had potato salad and baked beans as sides and I had the coleslaw and squash casserole. All the food was great once it came out - thought it was slow, especially when you see those ordering...

On a recent trip to Vail we gave this place a try. Having been disappointed by BBQ places that claimed to be authentic southern or Texas BBQ, we were apprehensive. Instead, we were surprised to find that all we ordered was really good. This included pulled pork, brisket, beans, mac & cheese. The beans even had the smoked meat in... More

The service here was great, but they were out of a lot of food. My husband enjoyed his ribs, but they didn't have enough to fill his order so they gave us some wings. The wings were not very good at all. The chicken and sides were OK, but nothing to rave about. The cornbread was the one thing I... More

We ended up getting in to our hotel rather late and Moe's was still open. The atmosphere was wonderful, and the staff was friendly. The food is really good. My husband had the pulled pork and it was much better than my chicken, though neither of us were disappointed.

Thank keithandkellyg
