First time we have eaten there. Food was great. Sign on door says wear masks. Girl taking order was wearing one as well as our server. But half way thru our meal a girl walks out serving other tables without a mask in sight. Then...person cleaning table with people at it came out with a mask under her chin. Then another server came out with mask tucked under chin. What the Hell. We are still in a Covid surge. Wish I could give 5 stars. Will probably get take out but will not eat inside for a while.More

On our visit we ordered before going outside to our seating. No indoor eating. I ordered the turkey blt because I wanted to try a blt that way. I also got broccoli salad and chili both in small cups. I enjoyed my sandwich and the...chili a whole lot! The chili was made with pulled pork and was absolutely delicious! My husband ordered a pulled pork sandwich, mac and cheese and chili. He loved the chili too! Thought the sandwich could use more sauce.More

We usually really enjoy eating at Moe’s. However, today we ordered 2 salads for takeout and were given no salad dressing. The pulled chicken on the salad also had bones in it. Very disappointing when the food is already a little pricey.

A bbq gem with multiple bbq sauces to choose from. The ribs were dry rubbed and nicely cooked. The compliment of greens were appreciated. Collards my favorite! Due to my SoCal upbringing, the chipotle really focused my saucing appreciation!

We absolutely love eating at Moe's. The food is great and the atmosphere is always enjoyable. The Boudin Balls are a must to try as they are certainly a favorite of mine. The BBQ is great and the sides are delicious. The staff is always...friendly and helpful. I would recommend Moe's to anyone local or anyone visiting the friendliest little town in the foothills...Forest City, NC. Try it! You will not be disappointed.More

We had a party of 8 for dinner. Ordering was quick. Our meals came faster than expected. I got the rib plater. It was excellent with lots of meat on the ribs. The brought us out a complimentary basket of fried catfish. Excellent! I’ll get...that the next time. Sides were great. There potato salad was awesome. I’ll go back again. For the people who think this place is over priced then go to Arby’s and get there rib sandwich and fries. Prices were fair lto low.More

Moe's barbecue was very good although I found the sauce to be a little too spicy for my taste. The sides were fantastic. I had a chopped barbecue sandwich with baked beans, potato salad and banana pudding. The beans and potato salad were both delicious...and seemed to be home-made. I could have eaten more of both of them. I also had the banana pudding which was basically pudding with one vanilla wafer and no bananas in it.More

There really wasn't anything bad on our visit to Moe's. The pulled pork sandwiches were loaded with meat. I have had better bbq, but this was ok. I think of all of the sides we tried, the banana pudding was the only one that wasn't...really a hit. Other sides we had were mac n cheese, collard greens, potato salad, and tomato cucumber salad. A family of four ate for $50 including a tip.More

Moe's is my favorite chain BBQ joint. If there is one in a city I visit, I go! When in this area I had been going to the location in Asheville, which ranks as my #1. So, I couldn't believe one was actually in Forest...City. Thank you owner! At Moe's you walk up and order. There is a regular menu and daily sides will be listed on a board. Some Moe's the drink comes with it, some it's a $1. This location it comes with it. Your sandwich or plate choice comes with 2 sides. You can add sides really cheap also. You can also just order a plate of sides with cornbread. Here, I ordered a BBQ sandwich, Bama style (added is slaw and a white sauce) with collards (so good I didn't even need vinegar) and mac n cheese : ) The decor here is so pretty and I loved that they were playing Bluegrass. I will def. be back and this just might become my #1 location! A side note, they do (as I think most Moe's do) have outdoor seating and I assume pets are allowed here. Worth seeking out if you are traveling with dogs.More

We happened upon Moe's Original BBQ while walking downtown Forest City. We were greeted very warmly and were shown where to order. You order at the bar, they give you a number and then bring your food to you. My husband and I, as well...as two of our friends were very happy with our food, the amount of it and the price. I had ribs and they were fantastic! My husband had chicken wings and he was very happy with them. Both of our friends had BBQ and loved it. They also have Alabama white sauce which one of our friends was thrilled to have.More
