Nice walk from Vail Village. I got the smoked wings with their traditional sauce and they were outstanding. I asked for all flats and they gladly accommodated. The cause was, for me, a nice balance of sweet heat. Really not hot at all. The greens, although they had some large stems, were tender and well seasoned. The black eyed peas... More

We had lunch here and we really enjoyed the meal. One thing to know going in is that if you're looking for beef brisket, there isn't any beef on the menu. Most of the offerings are pork, chicken or turkey. I had the pulled pork sandwich and it was really good. Great BBQ sauce, beans and corn bread, too!

Everything was excellent except the house-made BBQ sauce was a little watery and a bit too vinegar-y. The smoked chicken was off the hook and the sides just great. Pleasant staff, reasonable prices - can't ask for anything more in Vail

We wanted some good bbq and this wasn't it. The pulled pork had no flavor; like it had been sitting in water for hours. The sides were salty and flavorless. Do not recommend

In town for a wedding the happy couple chose Moe's to cater the pre-party rehearsal dinner and the BBQ was great. I sampled the brisket which was moist with a nice crisp crust. Followed the brisket with pulled pork and some fresh coleslaw to set it off. Every thing was mouthwatering and left you wanting alittle more. I would recommend... More

Very good barbeque, but limited seating space. Surprised the menu didn't include brisket, as most barbeque places I've been usually have that. What we had was quite good though.

Incredible pulled pork sandwiches and ribs pleased the entire hungry group for dinner. Sides of Mac and cheese, beans, and chili were all very good. Salted margaritas and on-tap selections were also just right. This place deserves the hype it gets as it delivers flavorful down south style food with non-pretentious ambience off the main beaten path but still readily... More

Others in our party raved about the wings and bbq ribs. The mac and cheese was good and the collar greens were a nice surprise. Must try the peach cobbler too!

Moe's has several locations through-out Colorado. I've never had a bad meal or experiance at Moe's ever. Also, very reasonably priced especially feeding a samll group or large one on a budget.

We had ribs, smoked chicken wings, and a bunch of sides. Total for two including the drinks that came and tip with was about $24. This was a ton of food and we really enjoyed it. Try the fried green tomatoes if you're inclined. Definitely recommend this, especially if you are on a budget.
