Fantastic value, friendly staff, fun smokehouse themed decor, huge serving which was fresh and delicious. Would thoroughly recommend it, especially to overseas tourists who want the Americana experience.

When it comes to BBQ sauce, we all have our own idea of what tastes good. Mo's gives you the choice (or the mix) and it worked out for all 3 of us. My sister loved her Sweet Carolina ribs -- the meat was falling off the bone, which she loved. I practically inhaled the Philthy Phil's and hubby went for a mixed platter, eating more than he usually does.

We all got half-slab portions, which were PLENTY for us. In fact we made the mistake of ordering a side of garlic fries and couldn't really do them justice. Also, the fries were a little too loaded with garlic topping for our taste...

The other sides that come with the meal were average only. The corn muffin with an a cinnamon butter was more of a dessert for me. The beans were sort of watery and flavorless. The coleslaw was a bit under-dressed but tasty with the ribs.

The Mo's House Amber beer was average.

This is a casual, busy place and we enjoyed the atmosphere and especially the ribs.

It's your typical BBQ joint. Slaw, baked beans, or potato salad sides with various portions of ribs, chicken or pork. ALL VERY GOOD. They also have Tri-Tip, salads and other side dishes. They also have a good choice of sauces.

Note: The menu says "Louisana Hot Links." If you order it, you will only get ONE not-so-big hot link on a large French roll, with grilled onions. It's somewhat misleading.

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.

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.
