I'm always down to get some BBQ. Oddly on this day I ordered a salad...from a BBQ joint. It was a very hot day and the thought of hot food wasn't enticing. The salad was excellent and the atmosphere was welcoming. We ate right before...More

Love this place. Best bar-b-q around. Like, being back in the South. If You enjoy good Bar-B-Q Smoking' Mo's is the place to go. Just Say Mo's!

Went to lunch at this location with two colleagues and we all agreed that for a small town, Smokin' Moe's is pretty good. Had ribs and brisket sandwiches and they were all very good. Will return.
