I live in Denver and so I typically eat at the Denver area Moe's. The one on south Broadway with bowling is my favorite and the first Moe's that I ate at. I was actually surprised to find out that it started in Vail and now has probably over 30 locations. The BBQ is great and the sides are also... More

Moe's BBQ is "smack-yo-mama" good. We're from Texas and we know barbecue. The pulled pork was juicy and tasty. The barbecue ribs made our girls happy. The chicken wings were excellent. Their sauce was great. Even the sides were terrific. They have this fantastic grilled jalapeño cornbread that comes with their dinners. Do not skip that part of your meal!... More

We chose Moes because it smelled so good every day from the balcony of our condo. We were not disappointed. It was delicious. Reasonable prices, great and filling southern comfort food, friendly and welcoming staff...what more could you ask for in the mountains?!

My husband and I love BBQ and went there for dinner while in Vail. Overall the food was good. However my husband does not eat pork and he usually gets a beef brisket but had to settle on chicken. Then when we picked up our order at the counter we found there was not only coleslaw on my husband's sandwich... More

Great barbecue at super reasonable pricing. Delicious smoked turkey and chicken is what we had. The coleslaw and cornbread were the best ever. We sat outside and truly had one of the best meals yet during this Colorado vacation!!!

The meats at Moe's were excellent. Ribs were juicy and fall-off- the-bone tender. Pull pork was tasty and moist. Tried three sides was not impressed with any of them - Mac & Cheese, Cole slaw (very vinegary), Potato salad. Would come back again for the meat. Order at the register, kitchen calls your name, eat at picnic tables inside or... More

This was a taste of home, even though there are no Moe's in Texas... Moe's has some amazing brisket and most of all, the Mississippi Mud Pie...oh my goodness. It is considered a side and trust me, I almost got it for both of my sides!! Don not miss out on this great restaurant while in Vail!

Good BBQ and a family friendly environment with prices that won't break the bank! I recommend the ribs and banana pudding!

Seeing the mountains in Vail during the summer is just as incredible as the winter time. Now to the food: it was good, not great. The portion size was average at best. The guy who took our order was unimpressive, but he let us know he was new... so I suppose we will let it slide. I did like the... More

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
