After living in Asheville, NC for 10 years, owners Kara Gallagher and Greg Tracey discovered Moe's Original Bar B Que. They partnered with Kara's mom Nasie to bring the Southern Soul Food Revival to their hometown community! Located in a historical building with beautiful brick walls, they knew the gorgeous spot was a perfect fit for their Southern-style eatery. The downstairs has a full premium bar with booth, table and patio seating. There are three TVs downstairs and two TVs and a projector screen upstairs to catch all of the Ohio State games!
Moe's Original Bar B Que features award-winning Alabama-style pulled pork, ribs, wings, turkey and chicken smoked over hardwood served with two unique sauces in addition to Catfish and a Shrimp Moe-Boy sandwich. Additionally, traditional Southern sides and tasty desserts are served fresh daily from recipes passed down for generations. Large party takeout orders and full service catering with delivery are also available. It doesn't get any better than Moe's Original flavor of BBQ!
Moe’s Original BBQ was founded by three Bama boys: Mike Fernandez from Tuscaloosa, Ben Gilbert from Athens, and Jeff Kennedy from Huntsville. After meeting at the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa, they instantly became friends and had a mutual interest in all things Southern: BBQ, blues, college football, and whisky.
In 1988, Mike hooked up with Moses Day in Tuscaloosa and began learning to fire roast meats. When Moses fired up his backyard barrel pit, everyone in T-Town knew where to go. The boys were lucky to learn from Moses and his distinct style makes up Moe’s original flavor of BBQ.
The boys loved the mountains and eventually they all landed in Vail, Colorado and refined the cooking skills they had learned. By using fruit wood to smoke the meats and hitting it with two sauces, they knew they had something special. Moe’s Original BBQ smokes all meats fresh daily. Unlike other BBQ joints, they don't stop there. They prepare eight to ten Southern style side dishes and desserts everyday with recipes passed down for generations.
Moe’s Original BBQ is a Southern soul food revival. They serve great food in an atmosphere that is relaxed, spontaneous, yet civilized….well, sometimes.
