Moes Original BBQ - Matthews

Review №1

Great open atmosphere with glass garage doors in the heart of Matthews! Chicken- get the chicken or wings. Juicy and quite arguably the best wings in Charlotte! Pork not bad but didn't taste the smokiness (which isn't a bad thing either but I like a bit more). Side choices galore but Mac and cheese was dry but they do serve local brews. Sauce is hittin'! Nice spice to it. Alabama red? Dunno but good! Not a 5 due to quality of sides. Service was very nice and friendly. TVs and music in the background so nice casual atmosphere. Would visit again!

Man the place was pretty nice. The staff was polite and the food delicious.

Review №3

Excellent food, good service, good location in a little slice of life part of town. We ate their amazing wings, and then walked around. It was calming and I am full, so I'm going to sleep now.

I ordered delivery. When I received my food it was a good portion, but the ribs and the potato salad was to salty to eat, so I just through $31 in the trash. Ribs do not need salt because they are pork, if you don't have high blood pressure you will if they do not stop with the salt. Kind of upset I really wanted ribs.

Review №5

Delicious food. Plenty of ribs for two and the sides were amazing. Definitely will come back for more.

Review №6

We love Moe's! We go there often! Great food, great service! A few weeks ago, I forgot my purse at the restaurant and was so greatful to call the next day and find that they had it and it was safe!! Love when I find good people! #customerforlife!

Review №7

It was my 1st time and i had the turkey platter with a side of pulled pork and it was really good, a little bit on the pricey side at almost $20 per platter but its good sized portions too

Review №8

Food was good (not as good as before pandemic) but it was good. My main concerns are twofold. First, the table was dirty (we arrived at opening, so I assume it was from the night before). Secondly, the manager and kitchen staff did not have on mask or face coverings of any sort. They brought food out without face coverings. I also went to kitchen are to ask for sauce, they both had no mask on.I understand that everyone hates wearing mask, but in a restaurant in the midst of a pandemic I feel it should be mandatory.For this reason we probably will not return.

Review №9

Killer food. Great outdoor seating. Stellar customer service. 10/10 will.come again. Mondays Kids eat free!

Review №10

Very friendly employees. BBQ was okay, pulled, not crisp but they seemed confused with our requests for and Eastern style sauce(in NC)??. Small sides that should fill a tray section not a tiny cup. Great employees; beer, and good food but they could be better in servings for bbq and sides, for the price they should fill the plate!

Review №11

Honestly some of the best bbq I've had! Great slow cooked meats and delicious sides! Loved my experience here and will be back!

Review №12

I'm only giving three instead of four because they only offer one kind of BBQ sauce. I understand we are in NC and almost everyone likes vinegar based sauce but not everyone. The food has a good flavor and the atmosphere is good. Eating here in the spring and summer would be amazing. The whole restaurant opens up to the outside and is in a good location. Just offer more sauces for picky eaters. I would've loved to have a sweet tomato based sauce. Or even a spicy sauce. If you are a fan of vinegar based sauce then I would suggest eating here

Review №13

This place has pretty good BBQ, and the wings are also excellent, especially for their price on special. Only docking a star because they seem frequently understaffed, and to-go orders seem to take forever for things that are already pre-packaged (i.e., banana pudding).

Review №14

Amazing the shrimp Poe boy.Wow. Huge pieces of shrimp in an amazing sandwich.Unbelievable corned beef. The best I have ever had! Juicy and delicious. Eaten here many times and always consistently wonderful.Fish is jaw-dropping too. And the CORNBREAD holy moly

Review №15

Me and my bf came here and it was our first time & it was okay. the tea was nasty. tasted like the bottom of the tea container was dirty. just had a weird taste. my pull pork sandwich was eh. the collard greens were hard. mac & cheese was good. the ribs was the only thing that was really good. the customer service was eh, because our “ server “ was high off marijuana & very unprofessional he was slurr w his words. i ask him what drinks do you guys have , he replied saying “ what do u guys want, we have this and that. it was rude honestly. Also he had on slides & to me that's very unprofessional to be wearing if you're going to be serving food & drinks to customers. We won't be coming back.

Review №16

Awesome BBQ in downtown Matthews! Great wings, ribs,and Brunswick stew. Always has a good updated tap list with plenty of local NC brews. Plenty of room and usually a line getting take out. Great for lunch and dinner.

Review №17

The wings, pulled pork and sides are delicious. This place is a must. I live in VA and I go every time I'm in the area!!!

Review №18

Really good BBQ. Got family pack with pound and a half pulled pork, 3 sides, buns and the best corn bread. Brunswick stew was different, but good.

Review №19

I'd never eaten at one of these places before. You order at the counter and get your own soft drinks, and the food is brought to your table. I had a pulled pork platter with collard greens and macaroni and cheese as my sides. The pork was average, the collards were quite tasty, and the macaroni and cheese was bland and strangely oily / greasy. The piece of cornbread that comes with the platter was delicious. We had an order of wings for the entire table, and they were perhaps the best wings I have ever had in my entire life. The service is very friendly and the food comes out quickly.

Review №20

Really, really good. I had the pulled pork platter and my partner had the ribs. All the sides were good but the corn pudding verged on great. Banana pudding was solid, a little heavy, but that's good, right? The cornbread side was transcendent. It seemed to be held together only by hope but then it was grilled for the tiniest crunch on the edges.

Review №21

The food is tasty and plentiful. Just don't rely on them answering the phone...was ordering take out but had to go into the location to order then wait. They said sometimes they have issues with their phone.

Review №22

I liked this place more than I thought I would. Some of the best smoked wings I've had. And their BBQ sauce was a fantastic blend of Carolina and Kansas style sauces, sweet and tangy. And they had a good selection of local beer on tap.

Review №23

We eat here at least once a week. Staff is friendly and food is delicious!

Review №24

Good location with solid bbq. Their specials are also interesting.

Review №25

To much salt on the BBQ but the sides were good.

Review №26

The collards and the grit cakes were very good

Review №27

Not the “Welcome to Moe's” burrito place I thought it would be. It's good Southern barbecue. Turkey sandwich was good, so was the mashed potatoes. They ran out of salad, so I had coleslaw. Order at the counter. Pay at the counter. Food delivered to you.

Review №28

Meat falls off the bone but dry as a bone. First time to not finish eating BBQ. Serves Pepsi products and canned tea.

Review №29

I stopped here on a Friday at around 2 pm.The staff was really friendly and the cashier very knowledgeable about the menu. (sorry I can't remember your name)He suggested some special sides.I ordered the Friday special lunch “beef brisket”Platter with two sides and come with a drink.There was a special side that day, “squash casserole”, delicious! And the fried corn cobb. Also cone with cornbread.Everything was on point!The place was neat & clean. Fast service.You need to place your order, the cashier will give you a number and you just need to sit and wait no more than 3-5 minutes.I wish I live closer. But I'll be back! Totally recommend this special place.Thank you Moe's!

Review №30

This place has amazing food. The catfish platter was delicious. The cornbread and collard greens were also great! Will be back. The staff were super friendly.

Review №31

We had the wings, Cuban pulled pork sandwich, grits, Brunswick stew, mac and cheese, banana pudding and sweet potato casserole (between two of us). It was very good and sustained us for the flight home (in the back row of the plane in boarding group 73).Moe's is recommended, the airline not so much.

Review №32

Eat at Moe's. Definately know how to do great BBQ. Recommend getting Bama style. Pulled pork is cooked to juicy perfection. All the sides are a great choice. Corn bread I could live off of. Staff is very friendly and if getting to go you can grab a beer while you wait.

Review №33

I had the thanksgiving turkey sandwich last night and it was amazing! It was easily in the top of best sandwiches I have ever had! I have eaten here plenty of times and only one time was I disappointed and it was because the food was cold (particularly the pork chili). Also it's worth noting while you're here try the boudin balls (if available)...they are full of spice and flavor. You don't usually know what flavors you'll get here (I have had a few different versions of collard greens for example here)...It seems that the cooks have a free hand in seasoning choices but it usually is good and I don't mind the inconsistencies in the flavors as long as it's good!The only restaurant in DT Matthews we consistently eat at!Also the prices here are unbeatable for a southern barbecue restaurant.

Review №34

Barbecue to make you drool!! We love the tender bbq platter and the constantly changing sides. You can't go wrong with the Mac and Cheese and the slaw... but if you're lucky they will have Boudin Balls on the menu - they are a must pick!!! Easy for large groups, too!

Review №35

Best BBQ Ribs and sauce in Matthews NC Area. A BBQ MUST

Review №36

We were in the area for a fun weekend and found the Matthews area a very fun/hip vibe. Moe's was the local BBQ Joint and because we were in the south (I'm from the Midwest), we had to stop in!I had the pulled pork platter- was a pulled pork sandwich with out the bun, a delicious, melt-in-your-mouth roast with sweet sauce already on it. You do have the option at your table to put spicier sauce on it, if that's your cup of tea.The potato salad was real good! Had a Mustardy/acidic flavor; it reminded me of German potato salad back home with and american twist. The chilli was also really good! Came warm and with a spoon. I'd say the corn bread was more of a cake consistency, moist and warm, you HAVE to try it!On top of that, I had a great customer experience, the employees were friendly, there was outdoor seating for fun summer nights, and the restaurant was CLEAN!

Review №37

Decided to give Moe's a try and was not disappointed. Had the Rib platter w/two sides and corn bread. The ribs were awesome; very tender and with a chew. Not too much sauce, allowing you to savor the taste of the ribs. The side, hashbrown casserole and beer braised cabbage, were great accompaniments. The cabbage was the best preparation of this type of dish I've ever had. Good stuff. The sad when it was finished. Could've had several more pieces. Overall very satisfying meal.

Review №38

The place is nice and roomy, the meals was enchanting and the rates were very affordable. fast, productive service and very amiable waiters. Highly recommended.

Review №39

If you are a sucka for some good BBQ like me, this place will not disappoint you. I had the smoked turkey (B+) and my wife had the smoked wings(A+). All the sides were good. The cornbread was beyond awesome! I don't know when I will be down here again but when do it will visit Moe's!

Review №40

Everything we got from here was really tasty...the meats were of course front and center with flavor but even the cornbread, potato salad, and arnold palmer were delicious. In a great part of town for outdoor seating and/or walling around.

Review №41

I was really shocked at the experience I had today at Moe's BBQ. Used to be one of my favorites to eat at. BBQ was cold and full of liquid. Wasn't even luke warm. Said something to the girl when she brought another one of our guests food about the BBQ. She really didn't seem to concerned about our experience. Won't be coming back here to eat again!

Review №42

We showed up within a hour of their closing, ordered for two adults and two kids. Staff was supper friendly. They bent over backwards not to rush us out. They ran out of sweet tea, and though I was the only one in my party drinking it, the made a new batch and pointed out that they had done so, and apologized that they ran out. Food was great. Great dining experience.

Review №43

Great BBQ, and the sides are amazing as well. The mac and cheese is delicious, as are the grits. And if the redneck nachos are on the menu, you should get them for sure!

Review №44

Love the fish, but the sides are a little bland. If you're no longer going to offer a drink with the platters, please change the menu.

Review №45

It's very hit or miss for me. Our last experience was pretty poor. They ran out of a lot of food and rang up the wrong items for my daughter and I. Completely forgot to put in my husband's order even though we were charged and waiting for it. After 20 mins, we asked about our food and our waiter seemed confused. Had to over food for my husband again but had rub out of what he wanted and we decided it wasn't worth it to keep waiting. No one offered to mend the problem just ran around confused. Hopefully the next time will be better.

Review №46

Great food. Good vibes.

Review №47

Ribs are soft and fall off the bone. More spicy than smokey but I'm pretty sure that's the BBQ sauce. Kids loved the Mac and cheese and everyone loved the banana bread pudding.

Review №48

I had a very nice barbecue with new acquaintances, Val and Kurt from the Providence Plantation neighborhood, East of Matthews, NC. They said it was their favorite place, and I can see why. The barbecue is good and not too expensive. Kurt and I had the brisket dinner. Then we walked around the quant town center of Matthews and had some homemade ice cream. Good people and good food.

Review №49

Reminded me of my childhood when my Dad would take us to Ollies BBQ in Alabama. Pulled pork, marinated cole slaw and fried green tomatoes! Amazing!!! And the cherry tree outside was in full bloom, bonus!

Review №50

Good Stop for Authentic Q!!Tavern design, cement floors, counter service with food brought to your table. Staff is polite and engaging in a real/basic style. Barbecue places have to feature their meat, but sides are important too. We ordered ribs (very good but on the small side), 3 oz. chicken (okay), bbq beans (very good), mac & cheese (good flavor but dry), and cornbread (which was phenomenal).Decent value and although we didn't have anything from the bar, a very good selection of draft beer and more.We'll definitely be back to try other items.

Review №51

Wife had the fried chicken special. Said it was a bit on the dry side.I had the pulled pork. It was good, but not anything special.The baked beans however were amazingly good!Both of us loved the corn bread too. Wonderful!

Review №52

This location is way, wayyyyy, better than the Waxhaw location. Food is good. Employees are polite and friendly. Only drawback..... was this one area. (Pic).The condiment/drink service area was congested at the end of the bar. Really cheesy and not designated. Even the shelf under the soda machine looked sloppy and dirty. And that whole area looked neglected and smelled of a dirty beer soaked bar rag.

Review №53

Amazing pulled pork! I love coming to eat! The sides are always changing and always fun! Banana pudding is basically a staple though! Yum! They have nice outdoor seating where you can people watch! Of course it is clean and nice people!

Review №54

Alabama style BBQ at a reasonable price with tasty good-size sides in Matthews suburb of Charlotte. This is a chain but food is prepared locally. Nice eat-in place with outside seating and nice blues and rock music in background. Occasionally a passing train rumbles by.

Review №55

Perfect food. Everything was point on and delicious. Great Instagram Photo Ops! Finally, just moved to Mint Hill and got a place that has some real quality food.

Review №56

Food was quick and tasted pretty good but the price of our meal was a little much for what we got

Review №57

Had this catered we picked up it was good price was good and I've been back

Review №58

Didn't think I'd enjoy an Alabama style BBQ but I did. It was so good.

Review №59

Great barbecue in a hip open atmosphere - garage door style windows and metal/wood furniture. Brisquet sandwich was amazing as was the macaroni and cheese. Kids liked their chicken tender and grilled cheese sandwiches that came with corn bread or mac and cheese and a soda for $6 each!!

Review №60

The atmosphere was really casual here, although my partner and i did come during lunch hours! I love love LOVED the banana pudding, and the sweet tea was really delicious. The area we sat at was this sort of garage type area, and the sun shone in really nicely. Its a good place to eat on a sunny day, but the food tastes great regardless of the weather.

Review №61

Crazy good bbq! Their sides are amazing and you could just do the veggie plate and be full. The cornbread is the best around. Yum. And the staff has been friendly every time, even when we got take out 5 minutes before closing.

Review №62

Excellent BBQ. Wonderful wait staff. Can't wait to be in town to go back

Review №63

Great location. Self service style and the food was really good

Review №64

Moe's sets the bar for wings and there isnt a close second. They have single handidly made all other wings "cute".

Review №65

Delicious barbeque with fantastic sides. I love the green bean casserole. Ribs are $1.25 on Thursdays for a huge amount of meat, so I ordered up 6, shared them, and still came home with 3. Two sides and a drink are included at a lower price than most BBQ places in Charlotte charge for just the meat.

Review №66

Great barbeque. Great location and my daughter likes your pig out front

Review №67

Delicious food! Amazing staff. The owner is very kind and made sure we were taken care of.

Review №68

Fantastic food and wonderful service!!!!! went in a large group and was able to eat many different menu options. everything was wonderful.

Review №69

Smoked wings are great, pulled pork is ok. Also, have a great sides.

Review №70

Bit pricy but great food

Review №71

BBQ EGG Rolls Are Amazing.... Love Em...

Review №72

Outstanding food ordering process was a little akward but overall great

Review №73

This is a great hidden gem. We will definitely be back!

Review №74

My 5-year-old and I wanted to go on an adventure together. We decided to walk through the Matthews Station area. Moe's big metal pig out front attracted my child's attention and so we decided to eat there. She loved all the details (like the benches have pigs on them - which I never would've noticed without her help).The woman at the front register was wonderful at helping us navigate a new menu and finding something we could share and enjoy. It was wonderful and everyone was so helpful and kind, and the food was delicious!We have a great memory that we share with others and talk about together all the time. I know we'll be back because the rest of our family wants to try it out and my littlest can't stop talking about it.

Review №75

Best smoked brisket I have ever had!

Review №76

Great food

Review №77

Friendly Staff and Pretty good food

Review №78

Great food all the way around, but the cornbread is insane!!

Review №79

Excellent Foo atmosphere. Friendly service

Review №80

Had a really nice, inexpensive meal here tonight. All fresh, and served quickly. The staff was very pleasant. They have a nice selection of beer. A number of families were eating as well. Quality establishment.

Review №81

Loved it all!

Review №82

The barbecue here is always good, fast, and at a fair price. I've never had bad customer service, and the restaurant itself is nice as well

Review №83

First time we were there it was really good but they were out of ribs. No biggie. So we went back tonight and now I'm not sure if we'll ever return. Ordered a bunch of food for us and friends and really talked it up but when we got there the staff couldn't care less any less we were there to pick up our order and we were ignored by the bartender entirely because she couldn't put down her phone/Instagram. Finally after 3 to 5 minutes of standing at the empty bar a server asked if we needed anything. When we got home the ribs were so salty they we're basically inedible. And I like salt. To the point my wife thinks I can't taste salt any more. And to me they were SALTY. We threw out the uneaten ribs. What a waste.So between the lack luster service and half a wasted, fairly large order of food we're on the fence about ever going back. If we do, it won't be on a Sunday. And if the service is like that if we do give it one more chance we're done. We own a home locally and will gladly drive a bit further to Macs or Boardwalk Billy's.

Review №84

We absolutely love Moe's. Would recommend pulled pork, Mac and cheese, and creamed spinach as staples, but we always like to try to sides of the day when we come!

Review №85

Good food. No whole banana in the banana pudding...

Review №86

I'm a Carnivore diet.. Got the pound of pork.. Heaven on Earth

Review №87

Delicious! Highly recommend the squash casserole. The decor and atmosphere were cool... definitely will be back.

Review №88

Great food, great price, nice location.

Review №89

This place is fast, friendly, and delicious. This was our second time and the food was great. I had the Turkey, Fried Green Tomatos, and Sweet Potatoes. My wife had the Pork, Salid, and Mac & Cheese. Everything was perfectly cooked and seasoned. I can't wait to go back.

Review №90

Super friendly staff and great food at a great price.

Review №91

Awsome bbq

Review №92

The food was delicious! The service absolutely spectacular! The young lady was delightful in her personality, and courteous.

Review №93

Love Moe's and love BBQ! Theirs is great. The earlier you go, the more meat selection you have. As they cook/smoke a limited amount every day and they might run out of a particular meat at the end of the night. Their side portions could be a little bigger. But they're very tasty. Including the beans and banana pudding! Very southern and i love it. Love supporting local.

Review №94

Nice staff and great food

Review №95

Good Barbecue! Sides are just ok , but worth it for the pulled pork.

Review №96

Moe's Original Bar B Que is my favorite Bar B Que in the greater Charlotte area. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable and very original. It is a home-town feel and they have a natural approach on making everyone feel welcome.The crowd is consistent and you see a lot of new and regular faces that makes it a destination but also a place I call my “My Local Place.” Moe's will always keep me coming back... They deliver Home-Town and delicious every time!!! In fact every time my sister visits she requests "Moe's Bar B Que.” Thank you again for making this one of our favorite destinations.

Review №97

Great food at reasonable prices. Been here several times and have never had a bad experience.

Review №98

Best smoked wings in Matthew's. Hands down! Had to order some for the road! Friendly staff. Relaxing atmosphere. 8 out of 5 stars. Draft beers are amazing. Tasting samples while watching the game!

Review №99

This is great barbecue, with a lot of variety on the menu. The turkey is very good, the wings are the best my wife has ever had (her first choice always), and the sides are delicious too. Of course, the pork and brisket are good also. And you can get dessert (Mississippi mud pie....hmmmm good!) as a side as well. And I love the Brunswick stew. Downtown Matthews is a great location and the restaurant environment is nice and natural. Simple and basic. Highly recommended. If guests come to town, to Moe's we go!

Review №100

Food from the smoker, wonderfully prepared. They even have tofu for vegetarians. Their sides, especially the banana pudding, are outstanding. They also have a good selection of craft beers on tap. The only reason I can't rate them a 5 is because of the environmentally unfriendly use of so much styrofoam and plastic that can be recycled and straws...
