Moe’s Original BBQ hails from Alabama and has multiple locations throughout the country. However, Moe’s recently opened an Atlanta location. Moe’s Original Bar B Que Atlanta is located in the renovated Kool Korners Midtown building. The Bama-style BBQ offerings include Pulled Pork, Ribs, Chicken, Wings and Turkey in addition to Catfish and a Shrimp Moe-Boy Sandwich.
I was invited to a preview to sample some of their offerings a couple weeks ago. I found the ribs to be very meaty and full of flavor. The fried Catfish was also one of the best things I sampled. Although it was thin, it was cooked just right, rendering delicious flavor and the house made tartar sauce complimented the Catfish perfectly. While the pulled pork was ok, it was greatly overshadowed by these other two selections. Sides of Macaroni and Cheese and Baked Beans were decent, but a tad salty. Skip these in favor of the much more flavorful and less salty Collards and the very unique Watermelon Salad (watermelon, onion and cucumbers).
Open for about a decade, Moe’s Original Bar B Que was started by three friends who met the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa. After meeting, they instantly became friends and had a mutual interest in Barbecue. With nearly twenty locations open, they continue to bring their barbecue to new cities.
Note: There is free parking in the back of the restaurant. It is not easy to spot and you may not even realize it is there, but there is an entire lot for customers.
