Eating Around Georgia Tech: Moe's Original BBQ

This one snuck up on me.  I saw a sign outside their door on 14th Street and thought they had just opened after a long prep.  As it turns out, they had been open for a month.  Moe's is a chain that fits the upscale BBQ trend, although I wouldn't call it totally buzzword compliant (no sign of the "O" word).  The decor fits the college theme very well.  They're located in the Kool Korners building.  I'm relatively new to this town but I understand that the building has  a long history with Georgia Tech.

I decided to go with a rib plate.  The slaw was vinegary, which I found very refreshing.  (Keep in mind, however, that I'm on a sour kick, so your tastes may vary.)  The beans were pretty sweet, overall well executed but nothing exciting.  The ribs were very porky---soft meat with a little bit of tooth.  But I didn't taste any smoke.  Perhaps it was just me; I plan to try something again at some point.  I just didn't get that smoky, burnt bits BBQ feel.
