New barbecue joint opening soon in Steamboat

Moe’s Original Bar B Que is scheduled to open in west Steamboat Springs on Wednesday.

The new barbecue joint should appeal to lovers of smoked meats and signature southern sides like corn bread, mac and cheese and baked beans.

It also will feature a full service bar with Colorado craft brews and a happy hour from 2 to 6 p.m.

“In a resort town that caters to visitors, Steamboat locals can often feel squeezed out of their own community during peak ski and summer tourist seasons,” co-owner Chris Gander was quoted as saying in a press release announcing the opening. “Since all of the Steamboat owners are long-time locals for several generations, we want to serve our fellow residents what they deserve and crave, reasonably-priced food and cheap beers in a relaxed atmosphere, away from the resort madness of Ski Town USA.”
