Total Experience of Moe Southwest Grill

Casey Arsenault

Walking through the doors of a Moe’s restaurant, you are greeted by the sound of all the employees breaking out into a pre-rehearsed “Welcome to Moe’s!” Next, you’re presented with a plethora of fresh ingredients to customize your dish or get one of the set menu items. With Moe’s, you have a few choices. You can choose from Nachos, Quesadillas, Tacos, Salads, Bowls, Stacks, and Burritos- all customizable

 Along with a variety of quesos, salsas, and guacamole for your side, once you’ve ordered what you want, each dish comes with a complimentary helping of tortilla chips, which is very appreciated. Along with your custom order and free chips, every Moe’s has an electronic soda machine with what seems like a hundred drink options. 

Not only does Moe’s have endless scrumptious food options, but the price is unmatched.  My usual order consists of a chicken burrito with guacamole, rice, jalapenos, sour cream, and cheese. Add a medium drink and it ends up to be around $9. Moe’s direct competitors, Chipotle and Qdoba, are more expensive. With that same order of chicken burrito and medium drink at Qdoba or Chipotle, you’re looking at spending 10 plus dollars, and that’s not even with chips included.

Moe’s has recently become one of the main hangout spots for my friend group. It was nice during quarantine when we could all sit outside, as most Moe’s locations have outdoor tables. Moe’s is doing what they can to keep customers safe during these times by having multiple hand sanitizer stations around the restaurant as well as marks for social distancing in their lines. 

If you don’t feel comfortable eating your food there, you can order mobile and they can bring the food to your car or even deliver it to your home! Their website is seamless and easy to use and I had no issues ordering. If you’re in a pinch and need a quick, cheap, hearty meal, Moe’s is your place. I will definitely be visiting them more in the future.
