I opted for a pulled pork platter with macaroni and cheese (the day’s special) and baked beans. The pulled pork was slightly sweet which made for a lovely contrast with the sauce–sharp and tangy. The macaroni and cheese was clearly made with real cheese and was creamy, rich, and delicious–far exceeding my expectations for a restaurant focused on fast food. The baked beans were made with relish–a combination I haven’t encountered before–as well as pepper, giving it a bit of kick that layered over the sweet base sauce. The cornbread, standard with all offerings, was not sweet but had a nice light flavor and a moist crumb. Each piece was very generously sized and fried after slicing, to ensure a nice browned exterior. Across the board, the flavors were full bodied, with each component of a dish contrasting nicely with the others.
The hubby choose a smoked chicken sandwich with macaroni and cheese and potato salad as his sides. He noted the smokey flavor of the chicken and was pleased with both the amount of sauce (not too much) and its flavor.
The prices are a bit higher than similar quick bar-b-que joints, but the servings are also larger–I was able to easily make two meals from their platter. My hubby, with his larger appetite, found the servings just right for a dinner, so your mileage will vary. For fans of the quick bar-b-que format, Moe’s offers some new flavor combinations and a truly homemade taste.
