A solid choice for St. Louis area quick service Mexican food.  I was traveling in the area about 6 months ago, and at meetings across the street at Monsanto Headquarters.  A couple of the ladies there said that they eat there all the time.  I can’t say I am surprised after sampling the wares.

Moe’s has some awesome tasting chips, guacamole, and pepper jack cheese sauce.  I could have made a meal of these in itself.  At Moe’s chips and salsa come free with your entrée purchase, but I would recommend adding on and going with the above picture.  The queso dip particularly impressed me.  I’ve tasted a lot of guacamole in my life, and while Moe’s has exceptional guacamole, the queso was really unique.  You can order anything you want from the menu, and dip it in this cheese dip, and it is going to taste just that much better.

I had to get this shot of the salsa bar, mainly because of how impressed I was with the name of the medium heat sauce “El Guapo”.  El Guapo is Spanish for The Handsome Guy, but those of us that are in the habit of watching awesome movies, remember this:

For my main meal I went with a stack.  Now I am going to reference something that Taco Bell made a few years back, but in reference of name only, because am in no way comparing the two.  A stack are two crunchy taco shells filled with meat and cheese, but then a soft tortilla wrapped around it with more cheese and beans in between.  The stack is then grilled where it all gets melted together.  The result is a cheesy, yet crunchy product that was awesome.

Looking at these pictures is really making me quite hungry.  Moe’s has some fantastic Mexican food.  I wonder to myself what kind of market share it would do in Utah where Cafe Rio reigns supreme in the quick service Mexican food realm.  I love Cafe Rio, but wouldn’t mind having a Moe’s around to sample from.  That chips and queso was the bomb.com.
