Moe’s Original BBQ Smokes Through The Recession!

Summer is here and what better way to revive the Real Chef Talk section here on FE with a fun and energetic interview with Chef Mike Fernandez of Moe’s Original BBQ Restaurants!

I spoke with Mike not too long ago, right before these steamy days said ‘hello.’ He shared his Latino background, which I found to be interesting:  A latin man making hard core bbq with a super thick country accent! I was trippin’; but had a great time   speaking with someone whom was  admittedly inspired by an “old black man.” Love it!

Listen to the interview to hear all about how this Boriqua chef, turned smoker genius got started and now is the proud owner of s a a soaring chain of restaurants, with plans to open a few more this year! Pretty impressive considering I’m seeing faved ATL restaurants shut down every week.

    I hear they’re finally opening one in Atlanta! Looking forward to tasting all the food he talked about! Ooh wee!

    Bill says:

    It is obvious that the person(s) selecting Moe’s know very little about real barbecue. I really don’t know how the Birmingham store stays in business, as I seldom see anyone in there. After a couple of visits, I drive past it a couple of miles to Golden Rule or Jim n Nicks. Moes lacks real taste. and portions are skimpy and expensive.

    chefb says:

    Bill: Jim N Nick’s definitely has some good bbq. I’ve not eaten at Moe’s, but the point of the interview was to bring some attention to their restaurant. I’d like to visit the Atlanta restaurant to make decision for myself. Thanks for stopping by.
