Atmosphere: Busy, but very well organized. The ordering process is pretty quick. Order at the counter, take a number and wait on your delicious barbecued goodies. There is ample indoor seating, a bar and plenty of lighted outdoor seating. The décor is pretty unique as well.
The Staff: The staff was very accommodating. They were all very knowledgeable about the menu as well which helps a great deal on your first visit. Harrison, took the time to explain the preparation & the cooking process of all of the dishes. He didn't give away the company secrets though (*wink). Give this guy a raise!
What I/We Had: We tasted a variety of dishes on this visit. The first dish was the
Red Neck nachos, made with home style fried chips, topped with moist, pulled pork, jalapeno's, garden fresh tomatoes w/ red & white BBQ sauce. Amazing fried catfish: The taste was very light & succulent w/ a side of creamy tartar sauce. The fish didn't have a heavy, "greasy" taste at all.
Smoked wings w/ a side of ranch and a side of red ranch. Rubbed & pampered to perfection with just the right amount of seasoning. The spices were just right. Smoked turkey: There was nothing "jive" about this turkey at all. Gasp and swoon! Trust me, you need this turkey in your life.
The ribs are St. Louis style baby backs- not too over sauced, rubbed and smoked to perfection and might I add MEATY, MEATY, MEATY!!!
Their signature pulled pork sandwich is bountiful & moist. It is topped with slaw that will knock your socks off. This sandwich will quench the appetite of even the biggest eater.
If I were to put their collard greens in the ring with mom's it would be a TKO! (don't tell mom)
The home style skillet corn was amazing & seasoned just right with a hint of finely diced bell peppers.
Potatoes Au Gratin: This warm and cheesy delight was an amazing addition to the meal!
Banana Pudding: The creamy, whipped ending to this tasters dream was the perfect ending. They put a LOT of care and preparation into the banana pudding. This is a must have!
Prices: each dish named is extremely reasonable! The snacks & appetizers range anywhere from $5.50 to $10.00 but they have special pricing during happy hours. The platters,all served with their infamous cornbread, start at $10.00 or $7.99 for veggies only.
On a scale of 1 to 10: I rate Moe's Original BBQ in the Lakeview District a 10. No one receives a 10, but everything was perfect about the meal. I am already dreaming of what I will order when I return.
