Stopped in for lunch. Split the 1/2 chicken with my friend. Had the green beans and Cole slaw sides. The green beans were tasty, with bacon and onion. Unlike most bbq chicken, Moe’s was tender and most. Good value for Vail.

This casual bar and restaurant serves hot and meaty wings with just the right amount of sauce and dry rub. Yum! Reasonable pricing at $8.50/lb.
