Moe's Original Bar B Que sets mid-April opening in Cool Springs

Carothers Parkway site will be first in state for Colorado-based company

Colorado-based Moe's Original Bar B Que announced today it will open its first Tennessee restaurant in Cool Springs in mid-April.

Founded in Vail in 2001, Moe's operates 23 locations in Alabama, Colorado, Georgia, Maine and North Carolina. Key cities in which the eatery is located include Asheville, Atlanta, Birmingham and Denver.

The Nashville-area Moe’s will be located at 9050 Carothers Parkway.

Moe’s Original Bar B Que is a fast casual eatery that offers smoked meats and “down home fixins” to create a “Southern soul food revival.” The restaurants feature exposed 20-foot ceilings and memorabilia lining the walls.

"While the food is in the forefront at Moe's Original, we kept with the entertaining vibe of our other locations by offering five flat screen TVs and a full premium bar that will include local specialty draft beers and our signature frozen Bushwacker cocktail," Moe’s co-owner Alston Noah said of the Cool Springs location. "Additionally, we will have live music occasionally.”
