Good chicken wings, very reasonable prices (by Vail standards)

Came for the ribs, which were fine, but surprized how good the wings are. Sides are decent. Very very casual place with real mix of customers - families to skiers enjoying raesonably priced apres ski beverages. Order at the front and they call you by name when ready. Think all dinners come with... read more

Moe's serves up some great BBQ. Don't miss out on their mac and cheese and banana pudding! You won't regret it.

It was pretty busy when I was there, so it was tight. But the food was so good, it made up for it. Definitely will repeat when I am back that way.

Grabbed carry out from here and enjoyed it. Loved the cornbread, wings and pulled pork. Banana pudding desert and wings were not my favorite. Great option for simple cheap meal with the kids. Wrote a full review of our trip to vail on chiliandtart.tumblr.com

ALL of the food was spectacular! Pleasantly surprised in every way! Pulled pork was very tasty. Grilled corn bread was scrumptious! Baked beans and mac and cheese were delicious! The ribs were also very tasty! LOVED IT ALL!

5.30pm and the place was full to the brim! Mostly youngsters out for a beer but all ages and plenty queuing up for food already - the queue moved quickly though and food was out well within ten minutes. I got the pulled pork platter, about $10 w cornbread, two sides plus drink and very filling. The food was hot... More

Visited Moe's with my son and his hockey team and was very pleasantly surprised. The food was awesome, interesting selections of sides, very casual (order at the counter). Food came out in a flash! Great spot for great bbq :)

Have a friend that worked for Vail resorts and recommended this place. VERY fairly priced for the excellent quality of food in Vail. Went around 7pm on a Friday and the place was bumpin'. You line up and order on your way in and then wait for them to call your name when your food is ready. I had the... More

We have eaten at Moe's before but this time we did take out. What a great way to eat at home without the mess. We ordered pulled pork, BBQ chicken, rolls, mac and cheese, slaw and don't forget the banana pudding. I don't even like banana pudding but this is terrific.

Moe's always delivers quality food at a great price - especially in Vail. Their smoked wings are the best! Always a great variety of southern sides. Mac n cheese and marinated slaw are delicious! Don't miss this place for a casual night out in Vail!
