Charles Reid

Great food ,clean,great service

Jennifer Craig

My Husband was born and raised in Texas... He loves to come to Moe's, just like being back home.

Madison Dorr

I liked the banana pudding but the chicken was a little dry. Not my cup of tea. Great service/ quality though.

Nathan Oakes

I thoroughly enjoy the Thanksgiving Sandwich. If you haven't tried their grits you are missing out.

Penny Lombard

Love it here food is fantastic. Our favorite is the chicken wings and pulled pork but everything is great

C.J. Harvey

We got are food really quickly and figured out why very quickly. Are food would have been very good around lunch time but we ordered it at 300pm lol. It was barely room temperature and had been sitting on the line since lunch wait to be served. There South Portland restaurant is great but I will not be back to the Bangor one again.

Charles Heidorn

Very delicious and affordable. Sometimes a little too salty.

Diana Carroll

Good food,fair prices.Very cool atmosphere and love the wall art and overall way inside was decorated.

Marissa Ramsey

Such good food ❤

Melissa Malone

1st time there and nine if was althat impressed. Smelt delicious but was nothing special.

Joe Osgood

Brisket is awesome

Ryan Eling

Delicious, delicious food! Reasonably priced and very satisfying. I have a huge appetite and Moe's always fills me up. The ever changing sides menu keeps it entertaining, but make sure to have the sweet potato, slaw or beans. Great catering options, too: you will not be disappointed in the expertly prepared meats. Also, kids eat free ALL THE TIME! This place is great for families. Check it out on Thursdays for the world's best Thanksgiving sandwich.

Evan Caprari

Great Value and tasty food. They catered my wedding as well in 2015 and did a great job. Best wings around!

Ryan Barr

Always good food and friendly staff. Rib platter is a must try.

Wendy Haltom

Fast, delicious & gluten free options

James Shields

Busy at high lunch time, but ordering line moves quickly and tables turn promptly. Food was delicious, as always. Soooo glad we have this gem in Bangor

just Doughty

Pretty standard northeastern BBQ fare. The quantity was good, the price fair. The food was all sweet, so if tangy BBQ is your style this wont please you. The staff were attentive and nice. The bathroom was clean, if a bit well used. I got the impression that they painted the walls dark so it'd be easier to hide stains. Maybe I'm being judgy. Regardless, we liked it, we didn't love it.

Steven Grim

Good food, decent prices. Didn't light up the taste buds. May try again later on.

DLB Harvey

Love the food. The staff are exceptional.

Gary Theriault

I have had everything on the menu and I love it all, though I love the brisket and ribs best. Moe's has the best customer service anywhere (other restaurants take notice !) Laura and I want them to cater our wedding. We go there at least once a week. Totally recommend this restaurant.

Lauren Degnan

Great food for the right price. Easy parking, welcoming atmosphere and friendly / helpful staff. I'm always amazed this place isn't packed 24/7. The food also comes out lightning fast. I have nothing bad to say about this spot! Definitely give it a try if you like BBQ!

meghan olcott

Best Pulled pork and BBQ sauce I have had since moving to Maine from South Carolina.

Jay Tomko

Great food and people

Kim McKeage

Meats are good, sauce is nice. I would like to see some more types of sauces available. Sides were very good and they very well may have the best cole slaw in the area.

William Dawe II

Food was great brisket is only available on certain days.. Tuesdays and saturdays.. however great selection and staff was very polite and helpful. Also a few good beers on tap. Thanks folks


Meats so tender it should be illegal. Moe's has never let me down. Get the banana pudding!

Daniel Chaitow

Good BBQ and good value. Pulled pork and ribs were both solid. For the sides, chili was good, corn was just ok, banana pudding was good and coleslaw was good (but pickled rather than creamy - good in my book, maybe less good in some other). Friendly staff and nice fast casual set up. Good place to go!

Robert Morris

I moved to Portland in 1990, from Kansas City. I was raised on BBQ. I missed it big time. During my work travels around Maine I met Dewey (the proprietor) at his first Moe's location in Bangor. His food is fantastic! Fresh sides that rotate daily, and super barbecue. I stopped at the Bangor Moe's every time I was in the area. So.....guess how excited I was to learn that last week he opened his second BBQ shop in my town of Portland, Maine?! Well, I'll tell you. I was his first customer, and I went with the classic pulled pork sandwich. As I expected, it was delicious. A couple of days later I pulled up for lunch and the smoker in the parking lot was kicking out aroma from heaven. I went in, sat at the bar and had a beer and half order of ribs. The ribs and my side of peas and collards were FANTASTIC, and the cold micro-brew made it even better. Moe's is a great spot to watch sports; lots of TVs, great music and comfortable seating. But most importantly, the food is top notch. Go get some!

Arthur Babinsky

Pound sign blessed to live near such a great place to eat. Great people, great food, and discount during Monday trivia. Can't beat it.


I don't always eat BBQ from a family restaurant with great staff and tasty food- but when I do, it's from Moe's.

Daniel Cummings

Great food. Friendly service. Fun trivia night on Mondays.

zilent zin

Awesome food! Haven't had anything I haven't liked!

Theresa Picard

First time eating at Moe's. Service was fast. Employee's were courteous. Food was great. Will definitely be returning.

Bob Gilbert

I'm a regular. Today is the first time I've been disappointed. Everything was dry and the chicken tenders were also over cooked.Maybe it was a slow day and food was sitting out too long.I hope this is a one time thing.

Kelly Estes

Food was great! The service was fast and friendly!

George Criner

Consistently great food and service! !!

Mike Denly

Visited for the first time, excellent bbq , catfish. Everything was very good and the prices can’t be beat

Justin Mcgowan

Best bbq place I been I recommend the poe boy

Thomas Roberts

Love this place. Fast, super friendly, and awesome food. One of the best restaurants in Bangor.

Teresa Winter

Bangor location experience 4th time: Ribs consistently excellent Beans, great spicing Cornbread, nothing good to say, oily

Leslie Greene

Moe's is awesome! Was introduced to this place by a friend, and I'm so glad I was. Awesome selection of sides with your authentic bbq. They have their every days sides, and special sides change daily. Kids eat free with an adult meal. Can not wait to go back!

Brian Foster

I've only been there once so far but I thought it was above average BBQ compared to others in the area. I was expecting bolder flavors but the meat was juicy and had good flavor. I had the pulled pork and brisket. The potato salad was very good and the slaw was fresh. Prices were reasonable and the staff was great.

Justin Faloon

Staff was very friendly and helpful. Place was clean and comfortable. Food was very good. I've tried several items at different times and the food was as described and very good. Clean restroom. Easy parking. Located on a busy street, but who cares for good food.

Chelsea Johnson

Moe's is always amazing. Such a good place to eat! If you ever have the option to get sweet potato casserole GET IT.

Joshua Jordan

I took my dad there today for father's day. It was my first time and for him as well. We usually talk while eating. Uh not today... The potato salad was good had good flavor. The slaw wasn't too bad. The ribs juicy not over cooked tender, fell right off the bone. The last time I had good bbq was in Texas. The price was right for the amount of food and we both walked out pleasantly stuffed and pleased. We will go back or should I say next week when i get paid

Kandie Cleaves

Pricey but delicious. We had pulled pork, corn bread, baked beans and coleslaw.

Allen Miller

Food was amazing and the staff was so friendly and very attentive. I will definitely eat there again and suggest it to everyone I know.

Ashley Gray

Moes is great! The staff is polite. Atmosphere is really chill, kid friendly. Food is delicious and the pricing isn't bad either. Easily my favorite place in Bangor to eat.

Eric Phillips

Food is excellent. They could clean up a bit.

Bill Clark

It's 99% great 100% of the time,. The 1% is due to my fluctuating mood. Always friendly, affordable, clean, and tasty.

Robert Sternad

Staff was very friendly, had the catfish and chicken wings... So good! Cooked to perfection...

Dawn L

Awesome food,great staff,amazing place to grab solve food!

John Maisey

Be sure to get your southern style BBQ on while in Bangor. Food and service is great. Reasonable price.

Amber Cowling

Has really good food will be going again

Ahmed Cruz

Some really good Southern food. Especially being up in Maine.

Fred Emerson III

Great place.

Christopher Wells

We order from here all the time. It's the best barbecue I've had in Maine, and I lived in North Carolina for three years. Definitely better than some of the lower-end places down there. The wings will surprise you - my favorite!

Ragnar Finland

The platters are delicious for the most part. Wish they would cook the catfish southern style though. Other than that love the place

Evelyn Serval

Delicious food, great service and casual atmophere. Until I moved to Florida, it was one of my favorite places to eat!

John M

Delicious. Had the Cuban pulled pork on Sunday. Friendly service and very attentive. Slaw was nice. Not too wet, not too dry and not overly sweet. Good and crisp, not soggy and soft. Corn bread was butter toasted on a side and yummy.

Joann Tonn

The collard greens are to die for and their meat melts in your mouth!

Reno Cyr

I have been at this location at least a better over 6 times. Great food and service. The meats are so tender like no other. The prices are very good, easy on the wallet.

Ashley H

This is like the Panera of BBQ. It's good BBQ at very reasonable prices. My husband loved the baked beans. The pulled pork was delicious. We will be choosing Moes over some of the other local BBQ places in the area.

Katlyn Place

Easy ordering, fast service, great flavor in the food and a bar. How can you go wrong?

Katie Gloede

My husband and I shared the “haul it home” double wide with pulled pork, beans, cornbread, and buns. The meat and sauce were fine, not bad not amazing, didn’t have a lot of smokey flavor. The beans were way too sweet, the texture was thick, and they were inedible to me. The cornbread was dry and I wasn’t a fan of the scallion (?) in it. Quantity of food for the price was good but the flavors weren’t great (and isn’t that what bbq is all about).

Jared Sands

Good bbq can be suprisingly hard to find in Maine. Moe's Original is by far the best I've found so far. Be sure you don't miss out on the hush puppies.

David Butler

My first time going wasn’t very good, soggy bun, forgot my cornbread, cold sour tasting Mac and cheese. Baked beans weren’t bad, pulled pork sandwhich was mediocre. It’s been a few months thought I’d give it another try thinking maybe they were having a bad day, but after the same thing happened again won’t be returning. Don’t let them rip you off, if your looking for a true BBQ experience, try Salvage BBQ in Portland.

beth adams

Foods pretty good. Service ok. Amount of food for the price not great.

Greg Choquette

Great food and service

Robin Sweet

Pretty good BBQ, quick service and clean facility. The pulled pork was lean and tender and sauce was decent. The potato salad was good, but the potatoes were a little large and tough. The slaw was really good!

Howard Shaw

Had a quick dinner sat night was as good as my first trip. Will be going back again for sure!

Brooke Bennett

Small portions. Mac n cheese is more like butter noodles. Shrimp moe boy was meh. Shrimp wasn’t cleaned. No Moe for me!

Rich Rad

Great food.

Emily Hahner

Fast service, great food. Loved their special fried green tomatoes!

Donald Rumery

Really fast and friendly service, best beans this side of the Mississippi River.

Good "fast food" bbq...quick service.

Angel Quirion

Fair price's. Great food. And staff is very friendly! Thank you All for a great meal and an amazing experience! We will b bk

Damion Gordon

My experience there was a really good one. Their sandwich passed all the test of a mean critique. Chicken wings and legs were awesome too. I would recommend a stop by.

Kyle Boone

The ribs are fabulous and the mac and cheese is great! Also, go for the white BBQ sauce in addition to red -

Joel Goodness

Really good BBQ! Sauce is spicy and tasty.

Pat Smith

Great as alway! Thanks Dewy and crew! Pat S. From Bangher!

Jimmy Haley

Delicious food and good prices. We will be back. Girl at the counter was very friendly and provided assistance by suggesting sides and telling us about their meals. I had the catfish with beans and apples. Girlfriend enjoyed her Mac and cheese and beans with her chicken.

randy Grindle

Smells so good and taists so good lol

Patricia Shaw

Great place for quick delicious BBQ. Love their pulled pork with warm red BBQ sauce. Interesting choices for side dishes! Had the baked apples with my meal today...yummy finish. Our 1st choice for lunch in the mall area!

Have been going to Moe's for years. They consistently serve up delicious food quickly. Highly reccomend! I have never had anything there I didn't like.

Anthony Young

Great barbecue lots of sides to choose from and great service

Tammy Young

Thursday special Thanksgiving sandwich is amazing!

Don Noble

As someone who has eaten BBQ from Texas, Lousiana, and everywhere in between I am very happy to have found Moe's. The ribs were delicious. Sides are big enough and it has the feel of a BBQ joint with a northern decor. Price was reasonable and the customer service was good. Will be back to try other menu items soon!

Michael Kennedy

Not much for reviewing places but couldn’t resist with this place. Basically bumped into it coming back from Baxter and needed some grub. Food was awesome! Fried Catfish, beans and Mac and cheese hit the spot after a long hard day of activity. Prices are more than fair also. Thanks. Will go again when up that way for sure.

Ronel Apol

Very nice

J May

Everything was so fantastic ! From the outside highly underrated appearance - we almost turned away ! ...but ...The interior, the staff, the menu, the dining room, the specials..we were ranting about it for over an hour after the experience ! We both are so eager to travel the hour-plus drive to try the next amazing meal ! It replaced two other top-rated choices on our list !!! Number ONE for bbq !!!

Amanda Hall

I loved this place. I thought it was one of the best bbq food places around town. I went a few time with no problem the last time I was there I got a bread hair in my food. I went to the counter to let them know and the guy just took my food. No replacement food and a sorry

scott rhodes

The food wasn't very good. The food was luke warm at best.. i was very disappointed in the quality..

henrietta neill

Great barbecue pork! Nice family friendly atmosphere. Super quick at getting the food out.

Isaiah Dodge

Moes has real southern bbq taste which is rare up here. Every sandwich I have had has been fantastic. The majority of the time the wings are delicious, however a couple of times I have gotten them and they were very dry which is why I docked a star.

Angela E

A colleague and I dined here after a long work day. The food was good and the service was good too. We tried the chicken, pork, and brunswick stew.

Derek Dubay

Love the pulled pork and Mac n cheese!

Alvin Garrett

I'm from Orlando Florida and I'm in hog heaven eating at Moe's. Best Bbq in the North east hands down.

Eben Baker

Some of my favorite wings around, great sides too.

Marc Cammack

Great BBQ and friendly service. My only wish is that they would have brisket everyday.

Ryan Frost

It was my first time at Moe's. Smoked chicken wings were amazing. The Alabama dipping sauce for the wings really was something unique and delicious. Brisket chili was outstanding. Liked the casual atmosphere and the staff was very friendly.

Daniel Guarín

Delicious food. Excellent services. A nice stop from Canada to Maine.

Pat Frost

Went there Thursday 6/6 at 5 pm. Ordered pulled pork sand mac an cheese. Worse mac an cheese I have ever had looked liked it was old and it was cold. Took it back to the counter an asked for some fresh an hot. Got some fairly warm. The other people in our party said theirs was also Luke warm. Looking at the business they were doing everything should have been hot and fresh. Don't think we will go back.

william dairyko

Always great food and service at Moe's. What a birthday meal!!

matthew callnan

Got there about half an hour before close and they'd been busy all day...were out of pretty much everything. Pieced together what chicken they had left and charged me for a kids meal because they were a little short. Mmmm! Tasty!

Paula Deas

Yummy food

Judith Smith-Valley

Lunch was luscious .

Robin Holden

Solid food, great value, outstanding service, I will be going back for sure.

Ryan and Jill Tenny

Love this place! Only place you can get real southern BBQ in Maine...and at a decent price to boot! Not to mention the workers are always super friendly!


Nice BBQ place! Great chicken and rib sandwich! The potato casserole is awesome! The mac and cheese was a little under seasoned but still good. I would recommend this place to anyone!

Cassie Schissell Barber

Good food and service. Not the best BBQ ever, but there aren't exactly a lot of options in Bangor. Definitely satisfied the craving though.

Steven Gaudette

Stopped in here today. For under 13 bucks (maybe less I forget) I had a pulled pork sandwich, BBQ beans, and banana pudding. Absolutely delicious. You cant beat that.

Will Johnson

I love Moe's Awesome food! One of my favorite barbecue restaurants in Maine. My only complaint was that the collard greens were way to salty this time. Less sodium please.

Steven Taylor

Great food good flavor and awesome people and best of all good prices the question is why haven't you went yet?

Varrick Nunez

Good BBQ place, nice range of food & beers. We'll have to make sure we get back there next visit. Easy, free parking in the small suburban shopping center, good access for all. Dining room is open & bright, not noisy though. Counter order, no table service but that was okay with us.

Todd Erickson

Excellent BBQ! Great choices. Fast, friendly service. A definite "go to" place in SoPo.

Arne Halvorsen

Excellent food as always and the nicest staff. A winning combination!

Tim libby

Very good food, well worth the trip. Sides change up all the time so keeps it fresh

Jason B.P.

Great food! I have been eating here since Moe's first opened. I like that they rotate their sides!

David Morse

Friendly staff. Good food . You won't leave hungry.

Bob McNally

Wonderful smoked Turkey. Black eyed peas and collard greens were excellent as well.

Sam Carter

Best bbq in central Maine. Great prices and friendly staff. Highly recommend

Tara Chadbourne

Great atmosphere, It was my third time going to Moe's. I had the chicken wings, potatoes and macaroni and cheese. Sad to say the food was dry. I will try again because I love barbecue.

Greg Lauver

Amazing spot. Their BBQ smoked wings are unbelievable. Everyone was extremely friendly. The captivating BBQ aroma is wonderful. Love this place!

Christopher Crobbe

Another great experience at Moe's

John Tierney

Food is amazing and ready in 5-10 minutes after ordering. Love it coming back next weekend.

Luke Saint

OMG this place is amazing, the food is superb. Wish the place was a little bigger is all. But minor.

Melissa Bubar

Really love the chicken wings, they are my favorite! They have good food and it's great that I can call ahead to order and drive through to pick it up.

Scott Goodwin

Probably the best BBQ in south portland.

Franklin Juarez

Had a cast party here the whole staff was super friendly helpful and always kept the food coming . Today I came back to try more items on the menu because of the wicked service and food

Pam Adams

Shrimp Poe boy excellent

Chelsea C.

Moe's takes two things that make the South great (food and hospitality), and delivers them in Maine with hearty sides of all homemade baked beans, mac-n-cheese, and potato salad. And just in case you were wondering, yes, their slab, chicken, and pork platters are THAT good, especially with their famous "Bama" sauce. My only request would be for Dewy to open up a Moe's on the Seacoast of New Hampshire!

Susan G. B

Good Barbeque, worth the visit.

Don Corman

Excellent BBQ food at great prices

Eric Grimley

Great bbq but sometimes run out of food since it’s all made day of

Wayne Quimby

Awesome southern style food and price is right

Brooke Duperry

The food and service at Moe’s never disappoints!

nikki bulmer

Overall good food, deserts left something to be desired, the wings were AMAZING.

Craig Rogers

This place is great. The employees are great the food was great and so are the prices.

Kondor Extra Thicc

I'm a little disappointed. The food is so good, but very, overpriced for the portion you get. Order the Brisket and Pork Chili and you'll know what I'm talking about.

Rick Carlisle

It's a terrific experience at lunch time. The crew works effectively to get your order out to you fast.

Clay Lane

Went to Moe's for ribs, they were out. Not the best start, but we were there so we went with alternatives, smoked sausage, pulled pork and chicken strips. The smoke sausage was quite good, but very small portion size. Had a side of black beans and rice, watery and not a lot of flavor. The pulled pork was good as well, and a slightly more generous serving than the sausage. Coleslaw was ok, nothing noteworthy. The chicken strips came in a generous serving size, and while good flavor, breading was overly dry and tooth achingly hard. Didn't like the fact I had to ask for straws and lids for beverages...(not kept on counter for environmental reasons.) Staff was very courteous and friendly, but paid tip (pay at time of order) and realized I get my own order and pick up after myself. I don't mind doing this but had I realised this I would have adjusted my tip accordingly. Would not recommend, just ok with premium pricing.

Rick P

Very good bbq. Have always had good service here. Food is very good

Chad Johnson

Moe's is the best. Great menu. There are always delicious interesting side dish options. The whole family loves it.

Bethany Varnum

Quick and delicious

Jennifer Snow



Some of the food is ok, but the BBQ ribs are amazing. They just melt off the bone into your mouth. My disappointment was the lack of a "sampler" type of order that has a bit of everything. You can add "moe meat" on to any order for a few more options but not all of them (they were out of smoked sausage!). EDIT: I've been here twice now and they were out of smoked sausage both times

Doug Lauver

Can't go wrong! Excellent food, always very fast service.



Oleksandr Tyutyunnyk

Delicious food, the best BBQ in town, great service.

Paul W. Lord Jr.

Excellent place to eat of course nowadays good food cost good money so be prepared but the taste is worth it.

Ashley Stokes

The food is amazing. I love the specials and the staff is great. Usually eat here once a week.

Tina Parks

Delicious and great service

brandon duenne

Passing by and looking at the outside it doesnt look like a very nice place but as I walked it I was suprised at how nice the inside is. The smell of BBQ was awesome right when I opened the doors. Everything I ordered exceeded my expectations and the staff are very nice! I highly recommend this place!

jewlee robinson

A+! staff, atmosphere, service, food, value, the frikkin' tunes they had spinnin', the food... mmm, the sauce & the food <3 simply delish & easy goin'

Mike Newey

Best service and BBQ in Maine

Mr. Review

Amazing, friendly helpful staff. The ribs are excellent, tender and full of flavor. The chicken is lightly smoked and moist. The beans didn't need any salt or pepper (in fact none of the food needed extra seasoning). Good sweet tea as well. A+ from me!

Melody Hosey

Awesome find. The blues music adds a great feel. Being from Texas, BBQ is a religion. Met with the owner and was impressed with his passion for a great product. He brings a nice balance of smoke, tang, sweet, and spicy to his food. Loved the beans and cornbread!

Mary Fusciello

Moe's pulled pork platter is the best. They ran out of their Mac and cheese side and also their sweet potato casserole but I enjoying the substitute of baked beans and pork chili. Their food is worth the wait.

Michael Davidov

Truly excellent barbecue. You don't find this level of barbecue in the northeast very often. This is worth your time and money, trust me.

patricia schmoock

Decent little barbecue place in Bangor. Good southern style food, all served on paper plates and metal trays! Nice down-to-earth people, even though there was a bit of a line, the gal taking our orders stop to explain the entire menu which was very helpful!

Ken Moulton Jr.

Pretty good food, cozy atmosphere, and reasonable prices.

Mike Dennis

The did not offer a rack or half rack of barbecued ribs...the we're precut...not what I expected or wanted...they tasted ok. You order at the counter...they call you to pick up your fill you own drinks

Juan Galan

Great food & service. Reasonable prices.

C McFarland

It's really good food with a friendly atmosphere. I really recommend their original wings or their ribs. Everything is cooked perfectly and tastes great, even though i think their sauce isn't very original.

Tim Prouty

As always excellent food and excellent service Very consistent with the two I've been to south portland and bangor.

Sharlena Biron

I LOVE this place - best ribs ever! We've loved everything we've eaten here but ribs are my favorite.

les stevens

Always great bbq! Try to go once a week since ive tried it!

Nicole Grillo

This restaurant is fantastic from the moment you're greeted and to the last bite! As a nervous eater I get intimidated by menus and it's a walk up and order type of place but the server (kristen I think) was kind and patient and made me feel at home! The food is always great so if you order in a panic no matter what you end up choosing its gonna be delicious!!!

Jed Storey

Excellent BBQ. Had the pulled pork, turkey, green beans, Mac n cheese, and cornbread, all excellent. Warning if you have an egg allergy: The turkey comes with a mayo-based sauce, ask for no sauce if you order this.

Benjamin Helstrom

Damn good value. Food is not super high end but it's real good eats.

Tim Hanley

A different Menu from your average restaurant around, friendly staff.


Very good

Sam Doe

Great food and service, as usual.

Lennie Sabatis

If your looking for an authentic southern meal then this place IS the place! All amazing food!

Jessica Reader

This is my favorite place to have BBQ. Great tasting, portions and prices. My favorite is the pulled pork. The meat has a good taste and the sauce makes it even better.

Pete munro

Good food, fast service.

Sofie Sawyer

The food is so amazing, I could eat here everyday

jason tucker

The staff was good the food was horrible the pork seemed soggy and under cooked the slaw is disgusting potato salad has no flavor the catfish my wife had was overcooked sorry more I'm from the south and this was horrible

Erwin Houser

Great food and service as usual while up here from Connecticut.

Boatswain Mate LSD 32

Good food, friendly staff, SMALL potions for the price, small sandwiches, buns smaller than McDonalds, small sides and desserts, always leaving not fully satisfied.

blah McBlah

Great food, awesome waiters/customer service

Tenma Spencer

The prices are high for what you get, but this is offset by the awesomeness of the food. Seating is difficult to obtain.

Gi na

We have been going to Moes since they opened! Great food! Kids eat FREE always (with purchase of adult meal)! We Suggest makin' it bama' style! Ask your cashier!!

Heather The Hedge Witch

This is BY FAR the BEST food I have had in a very very long time. Went today for lunch and my fiance and I almost died at how amazing the food is. The ambience is chill and extremely clean which I am mega picky about. They obviously take everything seriously! I wish I could give 10 stars!

Matt Foster

Good food especially for the price

Christopher Gilbert

Food was amazing, but one of the people in my party didn't get his food until the rest of us were almost done eating, despite is having all ordered and paid as a group.

Mary Baker

Excellent food. Will definitely go again

Padraic McNamara

Best ribs I've ever had! The house sauce is AWESOME!

Seth Lockman

Real good comfort food. Fantastic sauces. I love that they provide rolls of paper towels instead of napkins. Four stars cause it doesn't taste super marinaded.

Tech Adam

Great people, amazing beans, and tasty food.

Jordan Hess

I remember when Moe's opened up here, it was delicious then and it's delicious now. The pulled pork and ribs have always been their specialty but they make everything they create taste good. The meal-of-the-day is always a hit, and the sides are very good albeit a little small depending on how good you think it is! The prices are good and include free refills and extra sauce. They also improved their pavement parking which is nice. I'm very glad to have them in town.

Chris P

I order from here almost on a weekly basis. I love the ribs. They are always and consistently cooked to perfection. Not too smokey but just enough so you taste the meat and paired with their unique cornbread is making my mouth water as i speak. The brisket is to die for however i feel like they should make that a daily item instead of a couple times a week. Also the the baked apples or baked peaches are soooo delicious and another item i wish they had daily. The bbq sauce is good but I prefer a little dry rub of theirs on the side for the ribs and brisket. Oh and the wings are another great item. Their original recipe and dry rub recipe with their white sauce they give you with them is a perfect match. The customer service is always really friendly and the girls are super cute. Orders take less than 15 minutes usually even when they are in their lunch or dinner rush. Overall i love this place. 10 stars if i could.

Andrea Bolduc

Best BBQ .. good prices and great service!! Hope here for a LONG time..YUM

Bill Brassard

Awesome food quick-service amazing place

Nathaniel Kraft

Good food, huge (maybe too large) servings, and, compared to every other BBQ joint in the area, very affordable, even for a family of 5. This has become our new go-to for BBQ in the Portland area.

Eric Davis

Always amazing, been coming here since it opened 7 years ago!

nicholas knight

This place was surprisingly awesome! I give Texas Roadhouse 5 stars, easily, and this place might have better ribs! Ribs seem grocery store bought, not commercially bought. Try the collard greens! I can't wait to eat here again. Other people's food looked good too!


One of our absolute favorites!! We frequent this place quite often! Totally worth every penny! Great atmosphere!

Amanda Montgomery

First time at this location. Much better atmosphere than the Bangor store, less tasty food.

Brenda Norris

Ok food, small portions, expensive

Jeff Hawkins

One of the best deals in Maine if you are eating out with kids as they get fed for free! Can't really go wrong with anything on the menu here although the redneck nachos are particularly awesome and well worth getting if they are there for a daily special.

Kristen Shaffer

Delicious little BBQ joint. Would highly recommend.

Julia Cornell

I had never heard of Moe's, but my mom and sister and I were driving through the area when we decided to check it out, and I am so glad we did. You cannot beat the price for what you get, as I got an entire platter with 3 heaping sides for about $10-12. The wings I got were perfectly smoky and falling off the bone. The ribs were absolutely delicious, with a rich barbecue sauce unlike anything I've had before. I really appreciate when a barbecue place pays attention to sides, and every side was delicious, especially the mac and cheese. I was so full. Eclectic, casual, laid-back atmosphere and friendly staff. If you're in the area or you're craving some filling barbecue, you can't miss out!

Kyle Leathers

Easily the best Southern BBQ in Bangor. It's always hard to decide what to order because everything is delicious.


The food is always good and the people that work there are THE BEST!

Chris Rahl

Your one stop destination for pure barbeque bliss. Go bama or go home!

Phil Michaud

Pulled pork sandwiches are good, mac and cheese side awesome. Beans commonly canned and not the best.

Shea Murphy

The food is so good here! Like, terrifyingly good. I just wish you could get more of it for the amount you're paying. Bearing in mind that I'm a bit spoiled to that standard because I spent most of my childhood Texas.

Jenny Leo

Amazing food! Great staff! Perfect atmosphere! I’m extremely picky about my wings. I’ve searched everywhere for the perfect sweet and spicy flavored wings. Hands down the BEST wings in the area. Yum yum yum!!

David Hincks

Great food and fast service.

aaron clark

Excellent BBQ, good atmosphere, a bit unconventional process, you order at the counter and pick a table, they bring the food to you. Portion size was perfect, I left full but not stuffed. Only minor complaint is that the meat was a bit cold, not enough to complain but noticeable.

Alex W

Whenever I'm in Maine I usually hit up this spot. It's a cute casual place n the food is good. It's also helpful because my Mom and sister have a gluten allergy and my other sister is vegetarian n we can all eat there! ♡

Elisabeth Allison Jamieson

Moe's is a great KID FRIENDLY BBQ place. The food is delicious- lots of delicious sides and sauces. The portion sizes are perfect- we often have leftovers. The staff has always been kind and the service is fast! We go regularly with our three kids!

Darrell Dumont

Great bbq, great service staff. Great selection of food. Catering is great as well.

Kevin O'Keefe

Great BBQ. Make sure you get there early on Sat. Before the brisket is sold out!

Fred S

Very good barbequed food

Anastasia Nor

Wonderful family dinner! Highly recommend the dry rub wings.


Eeehhhhh not a huge fan of BBQ but it's good enough. If someone else is paying for it I won't complain, but I also wouldn't go out of my way to get it.

Monica Nicole

Best meat joint in town. Very gluten aware and celiac friendly.

Pam Schaffner

Delicious pulled pork sandwich, slaw and banana pudding

Tdc Willies

Mmmm. Mmmmm.

Nicole Wagner

The place is beautiful. I loved the Moes in Colorado. The wings here were way to salty, the slaw had no taste and the banana pudding was sticky. Wouldnt say I wont here again but this visit was less than pleasing.

Kathy J Burrell

Wicked good.. awesome

Jay Pfingst

Spectacular BBQ! Great food, fair prices, friendly staff! I will definitely be back!

Ryan Coffin

This place seems to get a lot of positive reviews so we decided to give it a try. I was really in the mood for brisket... but apparently that is not a menu mainstay and only offered one day a week... go figure. I ordered the special Cubana pulled pork and smoked chicken with potato salad and macaroni and cheese. My girlfriend chose the fried catfish with potato salad and rice beans. My chicken was so dry it wasn't even edible... definitely wasn't juicy or flavorful as you would expect smoked chicken to be. It tasted like an unseasoned chicken breast that was cooked some days ago and reheated. The pulled pork was also pretty dry and had only slightly more flavor than the chicken which wasn't saying much. Both had some strange colored sauce squirted over it which didn't add any redeeming qualities to either dish. The mac and cheese again was dry and tasted as if it had been reheated in a microwave... I never did get the potato salad as they served me what I believe was a pork chili instead... but it was more like a soup. No chili consistency whatsoever. My girlfriend seemed to enjoy her catfish and said it was good but she also disliked both her sides. Very disappointing. I was hoping that I would really enjoy this place but what a waste of money- I ended up tossing half of it in the trash.

William Andrews

I love it! Plenty of meat and side choices. Platters are a great deal and will fill you up. Only minus is for young kids or those who don't like their BBQ spicy, most everything has a bit of a kick to it. Cornbread has a little hot pepper as does the beans. Their sauce is tangy and a bit peppery. Not sure what those with tender palates can eat here, but for me it's close to BBQ perfection

Alan Stokes

Great food, awesome staff.

Stephen Palmer

Excellent food-basic decor.

Spencer Brassard

This is a greeeeeat place to feel like ones actually eating in the south

Tim Sawyer

The food is amazing. Easily the best barbecue I have had anywhere around here. The staff was also amazingly friendly and kind. Great food, great place.

Ellie Gebhardt

The staff at the Moe's in Bangor is especially friendly and welcoming. Great bbq that made us miss home a little less.

paul bamford

All around good bbq. Great hotwings.

J Kersey

OMG the food here is the absolute best

Brutally Honest Podcast

Food was insanely good! If you like bananas defiantly get the pudding and the fried chicken on Mondays is to die for. Highly recommended if your in the area looking for BBQ!!

Heather Weborg

Get the pulled pork sandwich!!!!!! So incredibly perfect.

Ryan McKenney

Delicious bbq food. Place smelled like a fresh bbq which really set in the atmosphere. Overall great!

Nicki Mills

Great food, kinds under 12 eat for free with paying adult.

Peter Naber

Being from North Carolina I had given up on pork and BBQ in Maine. That is until Moe's BBQ in Bangor.The pulled pork was moist, zesty, delicious, best... cornbread with jalapeños moist with crunchy edges, perfect! Young lady behind counter suggested jambalaya and was it ever tasty with a little zing from the peppers and sausage. Try the Cole slaw, vinegar base but not biting. Very good with the pulled pork! VERY friendly staff. The owner is out front checking on customers and interacting with all of us eating or waiting in line to take out. The platter is more than worth the extra dollar. Piled high with pork, generous portions with two sides. Highly recommended from a BBQ expert. Heading back to NC.

Brett Ginn

Great place for BBQ.

Eric Simms

Great southern style bbq

Sonia Bermonty

Only been here once SO FAR I had a blast jamming out with the fellas..the staff were super friendly and the food was really good too we were super excited when we saw the menu we had not found a place to get collard greens, mac and cheese, corn bread and all the rest of the yumminess they have to offer

Jordan Reeves

Take it from a genuine Southerner: excellent food, friendly service beyond expectations.

Kenneth Wagner

My wife had the rib platter. Said they were very good & moist-a bit spicy-she didn't share. I had a smoked turkey platter-delicious. They had a special of brisket but was sold out by 5pm. Be prepared as there seems to be jalapeno in almost every thing but it is not over powering, subtle warmth. Laid back atmosphere. Will be back.

John Berghuis

Best BBQ in Maine hand's down!

Ross Faye

Great tasting BBQ at very reasonable prices.

Michael Allison

Moe's is interesting. They have good food, excellent wings. They seem to be a cross between a BBQ joint and fast food, though clearly better than fast food. They do catering though I've never tried them for this. They have their BBQ available a la cart in pound quantities. The staff is exceptional, the prices are very reasonable. They have alcohol available and a drive thru window. I love the menu, simple and with daily changes. Lots of southern favorites. I like their grits and cornbread.

Natalie Crawford

Food was nice and hot. Flavor was awesome. Staff was very attentive. Will come back again.

Camden Bibro

Just fantastic. Been a long time customer and even recently used their catering service, which was perfect.

prem mukherjee

That was the best bbq I’ve ever eaten! Pulled pork sandwich with some of that extra sauce was incredible. Baked apples were like a home made apple pie. Mac and cheese was a bit bland but everything else made up for it.

Kolossus Prime

The food is absolutely phenomenal! The moment you walk in, you're greeted by incredible smells. The flavor of the food and the portions are perfect. It reminds you of the kind of food you'd only find down south.

Nate Mazanec

Excellent food, would travel again for it

Wayne St.Peter

A little pricey but delicious

Nick Godfrey

This place is just amazing. Great staff and very tasty BBQ. Prices are reasonable and if you eat in, your child eats free.

Ryan Fowler

Great BBQ. Nice place with a good sized bar to hang out.

Ashton Lessard

Amazing food and service

Heath Bennett

Very clean. Trendy atmosphere. It's carolina style bbq. Vinegar based sauce and the chicken appeared to be cooked in mayonnaise. Overall food was very yummy. They use baby backs for ribs. Mac and cheese was dry but the rest of the food made up for it. Food had a little kick. Corn bread was grilled and had bits of jalapeño in it. Customer service was excellent. If you are in town it is definitely worth the stop.

Nat Gray

Nice smoked wings and a killer white barbecue sauce!

scott turner

Food tasted ok, but was luke warm at best. Also the cornbread was kind of stale..

Joseph Sterling

This is "THE BEST" southern barbecue restaurant north of the Mason Dixion. Friendly staff, delicious food, what more could you ask....

Laurie Butler

This place is awesome. Great food, nice portions, quite inexpensive. Had the fried chicken special this time, was perfect.

Aleta Allain

Great food great prices! Staff is awesome!

Mike Clukey

I had a pulled pork plate with beans and marinated coleslaw. The food was very good, service was fast and the price was right! I will he going back there again soon!

Glen Kennedy

Clean , inviting courteous service. The owner and the staff are top notch.

Audrey Beal

Stopped by Moe's today to try it out and was happy with my experience. It's a small little place but it's welcoming and friendly. The staff greet you when you first walk in and are helpful in explaining their menu for first time visitors. They don't rush you while you look over the choices and you can seat yourself. They have free refills which is nice and they have decent prices. It looks like there isn't a lot to eat but trust me you walk out of there full. They have everything you need. Napkins on the table, spoons, forks, knifes and wet naps for you to grab. Some tooth picks would be nice but you can't be picky. There are flat screens for the sports fans and restless children and the atmosphere is overall good. The only downsides of the day was that the music was too loud and there was not enough sauce on the food leaving it a little dry. But you can always ask for more sauce and other than that the taste was very good. I will return. Thanks for making it a good time.

Jeffrey Egolf

Always delicious, great side options, and their service is quicker than a lot of other places.

Bill Taylor

Laid back and comfy And good food

Alex Gauvin

Was inquiring about catering and the manager Chad was incredibly helpful and super easy going. Definitely the best BBQ place in Southern Maine. The food was amazing and the staff was happy and helpful. The prices are hard to beat. Definitely a new favorite place.

Michael Cannon

Now this is a place that I'll drive to from the other side of Portland or even the state. The BBQ is good and easily reminds me of eating good stuff in Memphis, Houston, and New Orleans. Last year there was some consistency issues, but these days the sides are solid and BBQ always a winner. I love that gluten-free options are easy to find.

Susan Merrill

The food is absolutely delicious. My favorite is their huge salads.. Very fresh with lots of great veggies..I always get the turkey with it.. Tops it off perfectly....The staff are exceptional..And the owner is so helpful and this place!!!

Robert Kelley

Moe's is a sleeper. Great BBQ, lots of downhome comfort foods. Very casual atmosphere. Give Moe's at least one try and you' ll come back.

Gary Currier

We love this place! Very chill, laid back atmosphere. Great staff that's always very friendly and amazing BBQ! We usually have animals with us so have to get it on the go but really the best BBQ around. We love the ribs, redneck nachos and sausage. Even the sides are great

Tessa Hathaway

They made their sides bigger from when they first opened so it's 100% worth the price. I always get the platter (great keto option!) and their homemade sauces are the best.

Sharon Buck

Love Moe's Bar-B-Q Beef Brisket Tues and Sat. My Favorite!!

Roland Worcester

Tasty food, good selection of beverages on tap, terrific staff

Richard McCormick

I love this place as well as the one in Portland. Whenever I travel to the area from CT for work I always do at least 1 or 2 meals here each trip. Love the smoked turkey. Only let down is when they run out. But that's OK it forces me to try something new. Never truly disappointed.

Rick Thibodeau

Food was awesome and the service was fantastic! Just what we've come to expect.

Paul Bradbury

Sandwiches are very good.

yenifer mazo

Amazing BBQ! Friendly people and every dish is delicious

Holly Page

Shane Ashe

Frank Johnson 4-5

Food is great!!! Service is great!!!

Gaming Nomad

Excellent food, friendly service, great atmosphere. Good prices for good food. 10/10.

Kirk Earl

Very tasty and good prices. I didn’t have to wait long for my food either. Definitely coming back here.

Bernie H

Sometimes the food is brilliant but often times it is not. The mac and cheese side is really poorly made. The catfish was uncleaned and had not been soaked in it was chewy and tasted like mud water. They are frequently out of stock on their best menu items. The actual BBQ meats are great if they have them.

Dorothy Ahlf Wheatcraft

Best wings in Bangor. Great 'Redneck nachos' and rotating sides. Specials keep everything fresh and there's always something new to try. Plus where else can you get southern style Sweet Tea in Maine?

Allison Badger

Very good place to eat when ur craving pulled pork!!

Sarah Despres

Dewey and his crew catered our wedding earlier this month and our guests are still raving about it! Not only was the food delicious, but the service was excellent. Above and beyond what we expected. Dewey was super easy to work with and always responded to our questions in a timely manner. I would highly recommend Moes BBQ for any event you are hosting! Thank you so much Dewey for all your help and friendly service!

Aidan Gordon

Good food cool staff. Place is large and the wait is never long.

Deborah Richardson

Wings are awesome!! Beans, potato salad and cornbread are also excellent!

Ashley B

I recently moved from VA to ME and was searching for good BBQ at a fair price. I found the place! I have been at least 15 times in the past 3 weeks and the service is always great! Mostly, I get take out but a few times I’ve dined in. I had the pleasure of meeting the owner last night and I can truly say he cares about the service that his customers receive. They are looking to hire more staff and I think it would be a great place for anyone to work!

Roxanne Redding

Mac and cheese and beans were awesome!

Joseph R

This place is great. My friend and I tried it after it was recommended to me by my boss and we have not stopped coming back since. The staff is really friendly and the food is really good. Even showed it to my parents when they came to visit and they love it too. One of the only places to get great BBQ in the area.

Tiny Tim

Awesome food

Anthony Daley

Amazing food. The BEST dry rub wings I have EVER had! Period. I travel for work and try wings everywhere. No place better.

Pete Honey

Great food.....awesome help.

Dan Lasley

Great food friendly people fast service grateful music oh yeah


This place is customer friendly and the food is great so is the price

Ricky Woodson

Ribs were good. BBQ sauce was not great but good. A bit to much vinegar. A Kansas city sauce will be good option. Baked beans were really good and tasty.

Dana Peirce

Best fried catfish sandwich I have ever had. The new paper bowls instead of plastic? Not so good. Let my Mac and cheese dry up before I finished. Beans were awesome.

Andy Martin

The atmosphere is decent and the staff was friendly. I wasn't overly impressed with the food. I got the shrimp mo boy with Mac and cheese and red beans and rice. Both of the sides lacked flavor, no use of seasoning at all. The mo boy was okay, the saving grace was the slaw and the BBQ sauce I added, plus the roll was good.

Brett Miller

Moe's is great! Good food, pretty fast, great value.

megan cyr

The food was great, and the staff was very friendly. We got our food very quickly, and had very nice sized portions. I wasn't a fan of the mac & cheese I ordered, and they offered me an alternative side instead, which was really nice. The restaurant itself was very clean, had a nice homey atmosphere, and they played good music. I would definitely recommend it to anybody looking for great BBQ in the Bangor/Brewer area, especially if you are on a budget and still want great food!!
