I had the Brisket lunch plate. It had a good taste and bark, but has a lot of fat. Brunswick stew is good. Others dinning had chicken too. It all was good tasting, was is very expensive.

We love going to Moonie's when we can get away from the Kids for an hour. Moist brisket with corn, beans, or mac & cheese. Great sides, great atmosphere, and best BBQ around, you can't go wrong!

A hidden treasure just outside Gainesville, GA. Food is excellent. Service is self serve at the window when you first come in. Often have to wait in line, but that is because it is so good. Well worth the wait. I always get the Brisket Plate, so I am not qualified to rate any other meals. My companions rave about... More

Well first we ordered on for pick up and when we first got there they said the bill for what I believed to be a pork sandwich combo was actually around $25, I was pretty shocked. One we downsized it to a pork sandwich (larger one) with one Side it still was $20. I thought the pulled pork was uneventful... More

Moonies, for years now, has been one of those dang good BBQ spots that we stop into multiple times per month. And never have we been disappointed. We were raised on Carolina BBQ - the kind you pick up from backroad stands and churches in the Piedmont on your way home from work on a Friday. For our family, that... More

Had the pulled pork basket with Brunswick stew today. Mix the Carolina mustard sauce with the spicy! I will definitely be back.

Just back from Austin and needing a Brisket fix (for obvious reasons). This place kills. My buddies who graduated UT Austin about 156 years ago rave about the place so we trekked down for some brisket. Blown away. The beans were fantastic. Stew was fine too. Lone Star beer. I'm a new regular and big fan! Keep up the great... More

I personally am not a huge fan of BBQ but this place rocks. I usually get their brisket... and it melts in my mouth. Their Brunswick stew is amazing too! I now love BBQ!
