Moe’s Original BBQ: Smoked Meats & Amazing Views in Lake Tahoe

If you are looking for a good spot for lunch or dinner right on the lake in Tahoe City then look no further the Moe’s. This BBQ spot has great smoked meats, fair prices and amazing views. 

Moes BBQ-1


  • Cost: $10-$15
  • Hours: Everyday – 12PM – 8PM
  • Location: 120 Grove St, Tahoe City, CA 96145

When you enter this spot it feels just as you would expect from a BBQ joint. The smell of smoked meats wafts over you, the decor is all metals and wood and the kitchen is open and inviting. Even the menus are done on a steel-cut 8 x 11 sheet.

All of the options come as either a sandwich or a plate, and each include two sides and a drink. It is a good amount of food and I got to try a few different options as my group of four all ordered different things. After ordering we headed out to the patio and grabbed a nice big table to admire the view over Commons Beach, this is one of the best parts about this spot as the view is awesome. 

The Food

Moes BBQ-6

I ordered the ribs with collared greens and jambalaya. The meat on the ribs literally melted off the bone and it was smoked really well. The collared greens were not my favorite as they had little to no flavor. The jambalaya was great though as it had a good strong spice to it and I would recommend it.

Amie went with the smoked tofu, smofu, as she is a vegetarian and that is never really an option at any other BBQ places. She said it was really enjoyable as the tofu was thinly sliced and well done. She got the mac and cheese as well which was another good side that was rich but not too overwhelming.

The other two members of my group got the chicken wings and the pulled pork and both were happy with their choices. It should also be noted that they have a really good sweet tea here as well, which is one of the best things about a BBQ place for me if they do it well.

All in all this was a great spot for a meal and an awesome view. I would highly recommend it if you are in the area. Let me know what other spots I should try in the comments below.
