Okay, so this place has REALLY good chicken. When I went in during a normal weeknight, it wasn't busy at all. I just walked up to the counter and placed my order. It did take a bit of time, 10-15 minutes, for my chicken to be ready, but wow.... Hot and steamy, and crunchy FRIED Chicken. This ain't yo KFC...... More

there are not that many good bar-b-que places in van nuys, but Moms Bar-b-Que is awesome. the prices are reasonable and the only 2 drawbacks are the parking, and the people taking orders and taking the money (its usually the same 1 or 2 guys) are usually kinda un-friendly, they dont smile and are semi-rude, but nevertheless....GO THERE!!!
