Moe’s Original Bar B Que was founded by three Alabama boys: Ben Gilbert from Athens, Mike Fernandez from Tuscaloosa, 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.
Moe’s Original BBQ is a Southern soul food revival where great food is served in an atmosphere that is relaxed, spontaneous, yet civilized….well, sometimes.
About Moe's Panama City Beach
Ryan Helsley, Will Casanova and Trace Armstrong offer an award-winning, all things Southern, Alabama-style BBQ experience. Serving fresh from the pit BBQ and made from scratch Southern sides prepared fresh daily, the BBQ joint features to go packs and catering. Beer and wine are served as well as a wine-based liquor alternative used for specialty cocktails such as the Bushwacker and Bloody Moe.
Located in the middle of the strip right across from the Gulf of Mexico and about a half of a mile East of Pier Park, the 2000 square foot fast casual restaurant seats about 50 inside. Throughout the heavily wooded interior, there is lots of personality with a beachy/BBQ feel to it as surf boards, fishing gear, old driftwood and carved fish fill the walls. With a tiki hut bar out front, the expansive patio wraps around the side of the building and is a place for guests to people watch, socialize, eat, drink, and enjoy HDTVs, outdoor games, and live music. Additionally, there is a large gravel parking lot out back.
