Tipsy Taco Tuesday #31 – Moe’s Southwest Grill

GOTTA GO TO MOES! How in the world does Moe’s, which grills the food in the south west get it to the East Coast so quick? Unbelievable work by them. Now, everybody who went to Virginia Tech or probably any other college is familiar with Moe’s. Going to Moe’s on a Monday was a go-to move. You would present your student ID and get a Joey Bag of Donuts (my roommates would call it a Joey Bag of DeRosa) and you get a burrito, chips, salsa and a drink for 6 bucks. The tacos I ordered cost more than that. I blame Trump, but here we are. Let’s dive into the review!

Taco Review Time:

Moe’s does have hardshells, but the nice people at Moe’s give you the option to say F*** no to that garbage. I learned that they also now provide chips and salsa on every order. Moe’s is for the people.

Chicken – Natural Adobo Chicken, lettuce, pico de gallo, chipotle ranch, corn salsa and brown rice (beach season is near). They had the option for black olives, which for a taco is a wild move, didn’t do it. The chipotle ranch had a nice little kick, and was delicious. The chicken was loaded on the taco and the other toppings did not disappoint. This may shock some people, but I prefer Moe’s to Chipotle. 7.1/10.

Carne Asada – lettuce, corn salsa, chipotle ranch, brown rice, steak and pico de gallo. The Carne Asada was cooked a little more than I would have liked. The chipotle ranch on this taco was more loaded on than Charlie Sheen when he drank tiger blood. I feel like I could drink that stuff. I preferred this steak over Chipotles as well. To compare to Chipotle; I did not need another meal after due to the fact that Moe’s loaded these bad boys up. 6.2/10

Tipsy Review Time:

Moe’s does not sell alcohol, so I had to come home and smash an elbow bender. Sour beers have taken off over the past couple of years. I, for one, enjoy a good sour beer. One of the first sour beers I tried was the Dogfish Seaquench. I am a big dogfish fan, so once this beer came out, I had to try it. Needless to say, I am a fan. This is a mild sour if you are just dipping your toe into the sour world. It is a perfect summer beer, especially if you don’t want to drink the claws, seltzers or champagne while soaking up the sun. 7.7/10.


Unlike Chipotle, Moe’s gets the Tipsy Taco Tuesday stamp of approval! That chipotle ranch dressing is something everybody needs to try. Just like not going to the Virginia Tech Penn State game, September 12th in Blacksburg, say no to hardshells! #nohardshells
