No need to rate the food, its fast and we know what to expect. What I will rate is the staff. VERY friendly and efficient. I felt welcomed and that is not normal at a fast food place. Also nice to see one of the workers on thier break eating with thier family and having a nice time. It tells... More

The Menu is Varied with a wide variety of Toppings. The Kids Love Mexican Food. We settled for Burritos and Rice Bowls. The Potions were Right and tasty. The Service Fast. And Courteous. Certainly...

Great location with wonderful selection of toppings. The menu is great, simple to understand and the service is fast. Prices are reasonable and you get chips without having to ask!! The salsa selections are really tasty, from medium to super hot! Nice tables to sit outside.

This Moe's location is nestled in a shopping district with other shops that might interest you while dining or enjoying a leisure day. I found the employees very friendly and helpful. They made me feel welcomed and fixed my food in a timely manner. It was fairly close to closing time so action was underway to clean and restock the... More

I stop here usually on Monday's and get the Monday 5.95 special. The prices have risen over the past couple of years, but it's still a pretty decent deal overall.

One thing about Moe's Southwest Grill that distinguishes itself from some other casual Mexican chains, is that chips are included with the meal. The taste is generally acceptable, and this time it was decent. The quantity of food offered for the price is fairly generous.

Simple go to chain. Food prepared infront of you so you know what you are getting. Easy to park and easy to get in and out of for a quick lunch or dinner.

Moe's is decent "fast casual" American-Mex food. My kids enjoy it. I like their queso. Particularly at this location, everything seems bland and "wet".

Fast and full-filling! In a burrito, or a bowl, or on chips! Many choices for all appetites. My favorite fillings are the tofu and cole slaw! And best salsa is the pineapple-cucumber! Varied drink selections! Atmosphere - noisy and the eating area isn't always cleaned.

At my daughter's recommendation I thought I would try Moe's. It was near closing and the restaurant wasn't crowded. I couldn't help but notice food scattered all over their steam table. Not very inviting. I decided to order a burrito bowl anyway. The rice was not hot and neither was the chicken. Somehow, something spicy got into my bowl. I... More
