“Favorite lunch spot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2012

The whole family loves this place. Tri tip is very competitive in this town, and you won't go wrong ordering any of the choices ofered here. It is nice that one can have tri tip here on a salad; such a nice healthy alternative to garlic bread sandwich.

“Mos's SLO Smokehouse Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2012

I love eating at Mo's! I stop there everytime I'm in SLO. The food selection is excellent and so is the choices of bbq sauces. I especially love the pork ribs and the pulled pork sandwich. The cole slaw is crunchy and the beans are sweet and tasty. The place is great for families.

“good eats”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2012

lots of variety of different types of bbq - good pulled pork (I can never get passed on the menu that because it's so good). College kids enjoy as it's good value. Right downtown and near the theater, so is easy.

“Where's the smokehouse?”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2012

It's cheap and filling, but the ribs have no hint of smokiness and they seems to have met the very ordinary barbecue sauce just seconds before being served. Decent cole slaw and okay beans, but the meat is the Amin event and it doesn't cut it as barbecue.

“Very good BBQ restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2012

Food very good; convenient take-out for motel guest. We have also eaten in the restaurant in the past and found the food consistently good and the service very good. No delay; quick service; very good food product, variety and price.
