Mo’s is one of those “hang-out” type places, decorated with old photos and rusting signs, and of course an amazing variety of pigs out of various materials, in various sizes. It is a no-nonsense rib joint, with a few other notable items on the menu. My husband loves the Philthy Phil’s Ribs and the Sampler — washed down with a pitcher of Firestone. Now I love my ribs, but I prefer to eat something in public that is a little easier to recover from — no shower required — so I go for Mo’s Louisiana Hot Links Sandwich. My son is a fan of the sweeter “Sweet Carolina’s Pork Ribs”. But we are ALL huge fans of the wide variety of BBQ sauces that are original, and fit every possible palate or craving.
And we all agree that the Killer Garlic Fries are not only delicious, but will ward off vampires for a 100 mile radius and make certain that you have your privacy on the treadmill at the gym as you’ll be sweating garlic for a week.
The only room for improvement would possibly be the customer service … not a huge amount of enthusiasm from the staff and a little bit slow for a order at the cash register, have it delivered style restaurant. Maybe they should switch to serving and pick up some smiles with their tips?
That said, I would have to say that next to Splash Cafe this is our favorite downtown Pismo eatery — but more on that later! It’s safe to say that if you don’t know Mo’s, you don’t know Central Coast BBQ.
