This place knows how to do barbecue. Every time that I come out here for work, I must stop by this place. The guy who started this place got his barbecue root from the south. It really shows in the good he makes.

The food here is great! Small little place but big taste. Make sure to stop by this place when out here!

Our family is currently traveling the US via RV style. This journey will take two (2) years, which we are blogging on Facebook; "Happy Campers 227". We are exploring many attractions, activities and restaurants on this adventure using Trip Advisor. WoW! Glad we went to Mo's Smokehouse...The ribs with sweet Carolinas BBQ sauce was amazing. Good food & BBQ sauce!!! We also tried Mo's BBQ sauce, which was also amazing. We decided to buy a few bottles for the RV. Yummm!

We eat here every time we go to Pismo. We like the sampler plate. It comes with bbq ribs, chicken and pulled pork. The potato salad is really good.

We went to this BBQ place without any prior experience. We are from Indiana, and were with friends from Thousand Oaks California. We were celebrating some birthdays and getting together to watch the Super Bowl. I must say, I was very impressed with the food! The Tri-Tip Sandwich, Rib Platter, and Garlic fries were excellent. We were a party of 9, and I think everyone loved the food, and the specialty sauces. They do a great job. If you like good BBQ, and are in Pismo beach area, I highly recommend to stop in and enjoy the food.

The decor of this restaurant is loosely modelled on a southern BBQ shack. Best ribs awards took the pride of place on the wall. Order your meal at the front counter and just pick a table and wait for your food to arrive. We ordered a mix of ribs, burger and BBQ samplers. The sampler is a big platter of pull pork, ribs and 1/4 BBQ chicken. It is certainly more than we can finish and we saw quite a few table left with doggie bags. It ain't no fine dining experience but it was certainly finger licking good.
