“Small place; great BBQ”
Reviewed August 23, 2014 via mobile

First-timers to this little local BBQ joint and it was filled with locals, which is a good sign. Loved the cornbread, smoked pork chili, watermelon salad; all were great...and of course the BBQ was excellent. We'll be back for sure!

“Excellent BBQ!”
Reviewed August 21, 2014

Do not miss this place! Had the ribs and chicken, collard greens and sweet potato casserole. All were outstanding! The white bbq sauce is addictive. Make sure to try it! Service was fast and friendly and the local beer selection is top notch.

“The place for ribs”
Reviewed August 19, 2014 via mobile

When you go to Moe's you have to place your order at a counter and then find your seat. At busy times it is hard to find a seat, so it's best to go before the rush hour for meals. That being said, the ribs were gigantic and all meat. The coleslaw was very unique - it was marinated in an apple cider vinegar concoction which was very good. My husband enjoyed his pulled pork sandwich and the banana pudding was really good with a dusting of cinnamon. The prices were very reasonable and we would go back.

“Good Barbecue”
Reviewed August 17, 2014

My family of four had lunch at Moe's and were not disappointed. We all had pulled pork platters. The pork was very tender with good flavor and a light smoke. I prefer more smoke flavor in my meat but the others in my family liked the level of smoke. The sides were all very good and all scratch made. We had mac & cheese, greens, southern baked beans, cole slaw and the broccoli & cheese soup. The grilled corn bread was very good! Portions are generous and the restaurant is clean. This is a busy place that puts out a lot of good food!

“Not in league with 12 Bones or Luella's”
Reviewed August 16, 2014 via mobile

I love BBQ. I love having barbecue in as many places possible. Had heard great things about Moe's and so I was excited to try it. A line formed outside 20 minutes prior to open so that was a good sign.

But I just didn't enjoy the overall experience starting with the rush of ordering as soon as you walk in the door. The food was credible, though nothing was noteworthy...with the exception of the ribs which were just plain not good.

In my opinion, this place is a distant 3rd to 12 Bones and Luella's, and is over rated on Trip Advisor.
