Best wings bar none! – Everyone says they know a place where the chicken wings are the best. Moes and Joes will prove them all wrong. If you want the best wings ATL has to offer, this is the place. However, it is your standard dive bar. Nothing flashy in there, smoking is allowed which sucks. Beer on tap is good and they usually have the popular sporting game of the day on the flat screens. Their other bar food is good as well.
Moe's & Ho's- The Emorite Triangle – Cheap beer equals college kids.
It's a formulaic equation that's been in the curriculum forever. Being one of Atlanta's three oldest hooch establishments, Moe's & Joe's has had things figured out for a while. And with the highland bar being famous for its ridiculous $4 PBR pitchers, it didn't take long for some of the smartest kids in the city (Emory students) to figure out where to go.
The Emor-ites come in packs on Tuesday nights. Mostly with out of state I.D.'s (hopefully the face resembles the picture), and dad's Visa card, things can get pretty loose with America's future doctors and lawyers. And if you get tired of drinking the Blue Ribbon, either walk next door to the Cavern, or across the street to Fontain's for liquor drinks and liquored up post-grads. The trifecta of bars creates a Tuesday night Emor-ite triangle. But it all starts at Moe's & Joe's.
Terrible food and worse service – Moe's and Joe's is your typical hole in the wall bar that offers lousy food that pretty much no one eats, but can get by from a few alcoholics and really cheap beer that draws poor college students who don't mind that it's been watered down. The atmosphere literally consists of a large open room lined with booths and a few lightly sprinkled decorations. Go to Moe's and Joe's if you are already drunk and just want to pay as little as possible for beer that you are too wasted to enjoy. The waiters and waitresses will be completely indifferent to your presence, but will occasionally resign themselves to providing you with more beer if you are insistent enough. I do not recommend subjecting yourself to Moe's and Joe's.
Comfy beer tavern – I've bean going to Moe's & Joe's since the '70's...it's not pretentious and the old scruffy decor is part of the charm....that person who complained is probably an only child nitwit from the burbs. ........Chicken Wings are great as is the other food offerings....I just wish they'd bring back the goose liver sandwich.....staff friendly and accomodating as much as one can expect considering the numerous brats and drunks they have to put up with. Great juke box and down home aura makes the Pabst and other brews go down good....great mixed drink bar next door for those wanting harder stuff.......I highly recommend this place to anybody looking for a great beer swilling environment....indeed.....later, Hollywood Don
One of the best bars in Atlanta – If your looking for a Buckhead kind of crowd, look elsewhere. This place has been in business for over 50 years and is a land mark in Atlanta. Most nights the crowds are in their 30s with the occasional person or couple that were coming here when they were at Emory 40 years ago. You won't find a nicer crowd anywhere in Atlanta. It get's a little rowdy tues, wed, & thurs when specials or trivia are going on thanks to the Emory crowd. Be forewarned though, this place only serves beer, but Arthur always pours a perfect pint. Come here a couple of times and it'll soon be your favorite place in Atlanta to drink and ice cold beer and relax.
Love it! – My fiance took me here a few years a go for a date and it has become a local favorite of ours. The food is great and the beer is cold and cheap. I do suggest getting there early since it can get pretty crowded. Have to love triva night!
Mom-and-pop soda shop that pours Pabst. – In Short
Somehow through Virginia Highland's transition from the dangerous doormat to Buckhead's well-dressed younger brother, Moe's and Joe's has miraculously stayed the same. Wall-to-wall vintage Pabst paraphernalia spouts beer-drinking maxims. Cracked vinyl booths, faded wallpaper and nicotine-stained Braves pennants make it feel as though you're stepping into a time warp, especially considering the well-groomed surroundings. It's a place where dogs and burgers still get delivered in red plastic baskets for minimal coin, and cheap beer is pretty much the only option. A few old faces cling to their trusty neighborhood haunt, but Va-Hi's youthful office-hounds and Emory students carry the torch. The place has got a following every night of the week, but on Tuesday or Thursday, the crowd swells for beer specials. You'll want to get there early to score a table.
OK – Good place to hang out and chill but beware it swarms with Emory students on Tues and Thurs. More fun in the summer when the beer is just as cheap and the crowds are gone.
Been great for years! – Great place to go and hang out with friends. A favorite place when I was in college 30+ years ago and we still go from time to time. Horace is what makes it great - nice, but firm. Keeps things under control. I have great memories of this place. Glad to hear Horace is still there and things are still the same!
Memories – Really fun place. My husband and I have been going there for almost 20 years. We drive one hour now from our new home to go.
