Small eatery. Good seating. Can be a little noisy at times. Outside seating available. Good selections on menu. Wished they would include brisket. Turkey was great! Tried the collard greens which were good. A little too salty for me. Staff was friendly. Great prices.

Moe's has lots of vegetarian options. The Southern sides rotate daily and you can get a three veggie only meal.
