This place is sooo good. Loved the smoked chicken. Delicious cole slaw & baked beans. 1/2 chicken dinner w/2 sides, cornbread, & drink for $11.00. Super deal / super good.

This Moe's doesn't seem like much from the outside, but it is well worth going in. The BBQ is delicious and reasonably priced. Yummy sides (especially the cornbread). The staff is friendly, and the space has a fun, laid back atmosphere.

Barbecue chicken and pork. Prices are very reasonable. Vegetables are really good. Located in Lionshead Village. Kids loved the mac and cheese and wings.
