If you want great taste, great flavor and great value in a casual, down to earth environment, put this restaurant on your list. The value here must be the best you can get in Vail. The flavors were so tasty it was ridiculous! Ridiculously good that is! I absolutely loved the corn bread. I absolutely loved the sides, especially the... More

Be careful when looking a the menu boards. Moe's has a few standard side and then they have daily special sides. If they have shrimp bisque be prepared to buy a quart to go. Cornbread is a must also. The banana puding is surprisingly good. There is another Moe's on highway 6 between Eagle and Gypsum that is larger and... More

We come to Moe's year after year for exceptional BBQ. We were going to order a pound of ribs and some sides. The waiter suggested getting a ribs dinner for two which comes with cornbread and two sides instead which was cheaper. I had macaroni and cheese and my partner had red beans and rice. There is even a side... More

Great warm friendly service thank you Robbie and Vincent! Delicious southern food and atmosphere at a reasonable cost! The ribs and chicken wings were delicious but the banana pudding is a must! We went back for more.

Server who took my order seemed too busy chatting with her friends at the counter to pay much attention... I thought I was inconveniencing her... Be careful Moe's ... don't rest on your laurels

Excellent pulled pork, greens, baked beans and potato salad. Everyone in our large group enjoyed what they ordered. BBQ Sauce is delicious but thin. I live in the the South and this is true southern food. Little low on draft beer selection, so I ordered ba Blue moon in a bottle. Slight disappointment there but otherwise fast service and great...

Nothing fancy but enough food to last you all afternoon. Quick service and a wide menu. The chicken was moist and tender (and a lot of it) and the mac and cheese will stick to your ribs and my favorite lima beans were the vegetable of the day.

This place is not fancy at all, but really has great BBQ. The meat quality is good and the sides are suprisingly good. Definite place to go in Lionshead.

The service was very fast and the ribs tasted good! Great that they had sauce to help out with the flavor profile of the ribs. Being from Texas and being all about the flavor in the meat, I have to say that I have to give them a B+! Mac and cheese was great and I think the best part... More
