Excellent bbq ribs. Meat fell right off the bone. Fluffy cornbread. The only reason I didn’t give this place a 5 was the atmosphere. Down home funky, more like a dive bar. Paper towels and plastic everything, but at least I was able to score...More

Seven of us stopped here for lunch and were very pleasantly surprised. The food was very good and priced very reasonable by Vail standards. In fact, my smoked chicken sandwich with mac ‘n cheese and collard greens was one of the best and most satisfying...More

Baked beans were really good. Ribs fell off the bone. Meat was a little dry. While this is some of the better BBQ I've had in Colorado, it's certainly not 5 star worthy. I'm really picky about my BBQ being from the town that hosts...More

Consistently has great barbeque and unique sides to accompany them. Tastes just like the South! Prices are inexpensive so you can load up on your meal. Don't forget dessert!

My husband loves ribs to eat. So as we were in skiing in Vail for 10 days we searched for a restaurant which served ribs. We found Moe‘s. We were not excepting restaraunt dining but at least a clean rib bar with friendly service. Sadly,...More

Family had lunch here. Small casual restaurant in Lionshead location. Very reasonable prices. You walk in, read the menu board, order food and drink, get table and collect food. Good variety BBQ, wings, ribs, 1/2 chicken etc and choice of 2 sides. No fries. Portions...More

OK Barbeque - wouldn't return. Atmosphere: Moe's is walking distance from many of the best resorts in Lionshead (including the Ritz Carlton, Marriott Mountain Resort & The Arrabelle). Lionshead Place itself is a very cool little area with an iceskaing rink, shops, restaurants, spas and...More
