The food was priced well, it arrived very quickly, but the quality and flavors were not what I was expecting. I expected it to at least be on par with the Famous Daves chain, which it was not.

In Atlanta, we get plenty of good BBQ so we were leery of the "must try" recommendation we got. But we went, and we were so glad we did - it was really delicious! The sides look small but was more than plenty...and the banana pudding was great! We're going back today 😃👍🏻

Good people, good food. A pleasant surprise of BBQ done right. These folks come from Alabama and do well to throw down some good down home BBQ.

Great food! Lots of choices for main dish, great variety of sides. Reasonably priced, especially in a ski town. Very fast service. Not very many tables, or large tables.

Moe's is the Vail Valley's best BBQ, with fantastic shrimp po-boy, catfish sandwich, pulled pork, ribs and wings. They've got great sides, particularly the collard greens and black eyed peas. Finish it off with some banana pudding. They've got a great patio for when the sun is shining. When it's cold the small interior will keep you cozy. Great place... More

Perhaps the best BBQ I've ever had. Moist, very flavorful, and plentiful. Got wings as well which were good, but BBQ was so much better. Location is in the Lionshead shopping area, close to everything. Great place for a game, or casual lunch or dinner.

I have high barbeque standards, but this was pretty decent fare. Fast service, good happy hour specials and outdoor seating options.

My husband and I had lunch here on a Saturday. After a short wait in line to order, we both ordered pulled sandwich. He had potato salad and baked beans as sides and I had the coleslaw and squash casserole. All the food was great once it came out - thought it was slow, especially when you see those ordering...
