Moe's Original Bar-B-Que is a Colorado-based chain started by out-of-state transplants, Mike Fernandez, Ben Gilbert and Jeff Kennedy, who met at the University of Alabama and opened up a carry-out barbecue joint at the base of Vail Mountain during the 2002-03 ski season. That little spot has grown into more than a dozen restaurants across the country, including three in the metro area. After the fading Sport Bowl Lanes & Billiards ran its course, Gothic Theatre owner Steve Schalk transformed the space into the Falcon, a sci-fi themed music venue/bowling alley named after the Millennium Falcon. About a year later, the Moe's BBQ guys opened up shop there and the Falcon and Moe's BBQ were one. The hot-pit meats include pulled pork, smoked chicken, smoked turkey, shrimp, catfish, chicken wings and ribs. The traditional sides (baked beans, coleslaw, potato salad) are supplemented by rotating sides-of-the-day specials. This particular Moe's includes a small bowling alley, where you can knock down pins while you scarf down 'cue, as well as to-die-for smoked tofu for the vegetarians in the crowd.
