If you find yourself in Dayton, do yourself a favor-GO TO MO-MO'S!!!! Excellent BBQ and run by a really nice family. We were in town for the NACA National Basketball Tournament and took our players here for lunch twice (Hope Christian from Birmingham, AL). Kids and parents all enjoyed the great food. The "Killer Potato" was an outstanding feast. The... More

The barbecue is fabulous, the seasoned fries are fabulous, but, oh my, the fried pies! Least I forget the killer potato! Worth the stop - every time.

Whenever I'm in town this is where I always eat at. Excellent food at a fairly decent price. Two people can eat for less than $20. Highly recommend stopping in and trying it out.

MoMo's BBQ is basically the same as any other BBQ place that I have been. The meat is tender and has a good smoked flavor. You can get anywhere from a sandwich up to a family feast! They have desserts that you can order to go along with your meal. But one piece of advice that I can give is... More

Great Bar-b-que at a great price. We always enjoy eating the lunch special in their dining room or outside on a picnic table.

I'm a college kid and MoMo's has good prices. Their pork plate is to die for. It's my favorite meal.

Love this place! I'm a frequent customer here and the only thing I would recommend to be changed is to have a bigger, more adequate restaurant or at least an additional register/window to accommodate the number of customers that frequent MoMo's.

Although the major metropolis of Dayton isn't known for BBQ this place should put it on the map. We always get the killer potato with chicken. These things are a meal in themselves. They are a little slice of heaven. I would highly recommend to anyone coming up Hwy 27.

This is somewhere between a roadside stand and an actual restaurant. That may sound vague, but one small building with a walkup window is where you order and receive your food. There are picnic tables outside and another small building with a few tables inside and the bathrooms. I didn't count, but if 20 people were inside the "dining area"... More
