Vail isn't a cheap town. It's actually not very affordable at all for the average person. Get ready for $15 glasses of wine and $8 beers, but not at Moe's. This place is especially affordable during happy hour. While it's not my favorite barbecue in...More

Bar style establishment that whatever it lacks in the fancy department, clearly makes up in the flavor department. Everything from the cornbread and beans to the ribs were amazing. Highly recommend a lunch stop after a day on the slopes.

This was a good quick spot to grab a cheap meal while skiing. The pulled pork, baked beans and Mac/cheese were tasty and the portions were very adequate.

family pack was great option after arriving to Lionshead. The pulled pork was flavorful and not too fatty (we supplied the buns to make pulled pork sandwiches). The BBQ sauce gave a good zing. The baked beans were awesome with the marinated slaw tasting fresh...More

The food is amazing, to say the least. The prices are unbeatable, especially in a place like Vail. Even the happy hour drinks are priced unfathomably low. Let's face it, just about everything in Vail is high priced, and a lot of the on-mountain food...More
