We have never eaten here before. We walked in and ordered a turkey sandwich without bread with beans and coleslaw and two drinks. Note there is no table service. Food came out quickly and our drinks were served before the food. The food was great, quantity was also good and all the sides were very good. Nothing complain about but... More

It's the most reasonably priced place in Vail and the food is so yummy!! Hope to be back one day. Lunch time is quite busy but it's worth it!

Was visiting from Iowa and heard good review about this place. Will greeted us at the bar and top our order. The food was excellent and would recommend this place to anyone who loves BBQ. The Banana Pudding as a side was excellent. The restaurant is very simple but don't let the looks fool you as the food is excellent.... More

We had dinner at Moe's and it was fine. The service was quick and the BBQ was fine at best. If you are looking for something quick and not expensive than Moe's is fine

If you're looking for a quiet, calm restaurant with table service, this is not your place. If you're looking for a joint where you can eat great barbecue sandwiches (beef, chicken, turkey), in a noisy, crowded bar-like setting, sitting in uncomfortable seats, serving yourself and surrounded by 20 year olds talking as loud as they can, this is it.

This was not a restaurant or a take out per se! It is kind of a bar with extra tables and chairs! The music was so loud, in fact the place is only about 300 sq feet! The food was edible but it is like a cafeteria style! Not our type of a eatery! There were about three servers but... More

Although the décor is certainly nothing to write about don't get put off by it - the food is delicious and plentiful. I recommend the ribs and chicken wings (nicely sized and full of flavor) Great place to bring the family for a casual meal.

Went to Vail Colorado for a wedding in October and needed a BBQ fix while I was there. A friend of the wedding family directed me to Moe's. Had 8-10 people in our party and I can say everyone was on board with me as to the quality of the food. Everyone got something different and all was good.

After a long day of skiing, we call in an our order for pulled pork, turkey and a bunch of sides. Pick it up, back to our condo and relax with great food.

Already visited twice during our stay in Vail. The food is excellent value and very tasty. First time we had the pulled pork and on our next visit, the ribs. So meaty and a great flavour. Love the corn bread and the potato salad. All washed down with a margarita!

Thank McDufus
