Moe's Original Bar B Que Restaurant Review

: What makes 'cue Alabama style? It’s the state’s unique white sauce, originally developed for smoked chicken. First produced in Decatur, Ala., at Big Bob Gibson's, the sauce is great on brisket, too. At Moe's, pulled pork, ribs, chicken, turkey and wings line up with other Southern specialties, such as catfish and a shrimp "Moe-Boy" sandwich. However, we find the ribs lacking smokiness and a mite flabby, the meat coming too easily off the bone. Sides vary daily --- try the squash casserole. Barbecued tofu is served as a sandwich and as a plate. Banana puddin' for dessert is serviceable. Grab a beer for quaffing. A rustic feel prevails, yet there are flat-screen TVs, a large bar and a family-friendly focus, despite being nearly on top of Georgia Tech. A second location is at 12020 Etris Rd., Ste. B-140, Roswell, 770-299-1797.
