Great Cajun food. Can get things really spicy.....medium spicy......and not too spicy. Lots of great choices - the Jambalaya is worth the trip, and the corn bread is a winner. Service was good, and wait staff was friendly. They also do catering, and the food is just as good as in the restaurant.

Nice little place that has little reminders of the bayou. on the walls. Sauces had the right amount of kick and spice as well. From gator, to crab, to burgers and more, Moe Joe's is a definite must stop and try type place in Plainfield Illinois. Literally 1 minute off of Route 59 and plenty of parking in the surrounding...

Never had dinner here just food and drinks from the bar. Staff is acceptable. Do not find them friendly or unfriendly. Gumbo is excellent and enjoy the oysters. Typically loud. Nightlife here brings in a lot of people. Mostly a younger crowd at night.

Excellent Louisiana cooking in downtown Plainfield. Everything I get, everytime I go is excellent. From the soups to main meals, you can't go wrong. It can be spicy, so bring a towel.

We went on a Sunday when they opened, they no longer carried a lot of the beers that were on the menu, so an updated list would help. The food was good, not fabulous, not horrible. The bloody Mary bar was average. Overall an ok visit, probably wouldn't go out of our way to eat there again, but if we... More

Once you walk through the door you enter an amazing atmosphere. Staff is so nice and really makes you feel welcomed. From the cute mason jar glass to the personal loaf of cornbread they really make you feel special here. I order the gumbo and it was the best I've ever had! Will be returning to this amazing Cajun-Caribbean cooking.

Great creole food! Great atmosphere. Good beer selection. The crawdads are great, and the jambalaya is delish!

We came here for the first time on my night before my husband's birthday to celebrate. By luck or coincidence, we were seated in a back corner private booth, which was cozy, quiet, and neatly decorated. The ambiance is very cool all decked out in NOLA swag. Service staff was nice, actually a little too nice in a superficial or... More

We have been here so many times, and everytime we bring someone to try it, they reach the same conclusion we have. And that is, their food is outstanding. We appreciate the love they have for their food. You can taste it in everything they make. So, it may take a few extra minutes, but is so worth it. Me... More

We went on a busy weekend with the local festival and a light rain. Since they were busy and there was a good chance of getting wet outside we opted for the basement for the first time. Started out okay low ceiling and only 8 tables, with a full bar. The problem began when two large groups came in and... More
