“Good Value, Tasty BBQ in Lakewood”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 April 2013

I'd driven by this place a hundred times and finally stopped in one day when I was jonesing for some BBQ.

While the place may seemed out of sorts in the strip mall it's in, I was pleasantly surprised by the friendlienss of the staff and casual atmosphere. I've been here mutiple times with my whole family since the first visit and the place has been consistently good with great customer service!

I would recommend the brisket which is tender and has a nice smokey flavor. My, and now my kids, favorite is the Turkey Breast. Moist, tender and just the right amount of smoke complimented nicely with their BBQ sauce. It's nice that they serve the BBQ sauce the right way, warm, keeping in a warmer instead of just sitting out.

Last time we were there my wife ordered the fried catfish, and loved it. The portion was huge with the catfish fried crispy-perfect with a delicious dipping sauce.

I'd also reccomend the slaw and the baked beans as side dishes, both very delicous. This place is also very kid friendly. Their kids menu has a lot a variety and comes with a drink at a price less than what you would spend on your kids at McDonalds.

My only complaint, or suggestion to them for improvement, is that we went through a heck of a lot of plastic ware and disposable service dishes. As I was emptying the plastic wear, plastic cups, plastic side dish cups, and disposable serving dishes I couldn't help but think that this was adding a lot of waste to the landfill, not to mention all the natural resources that went into making all the plastic. It would be good to see them be a little more environmentally conscious. Real plates, silverware, and glasses that could be reused many times would be nice.

“Good place for good food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2012

Being from memPhis seeing Moe's was a treat in Colorado. We enjoyed the BBQ and sides. One of the group had catfish and commented on how good it was. The fried green tomatoes were really good. I recommend Moe's. Good food for a good value

“you can get "one rib"”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 January 2012

This has a good atmosphere and decent food. I am pretty picky about my BBQ and the ribs were a bit dry.
