When it comes to eating out, we’re those annoying people. You know, the ones with the small kids and the food avoidances. Basically when you ask, “what do you guys think about eating at (insert restaurant here)?”, you probably don’t want to hear the answer. Or rather, the million questions we’ll ask you.
Questions such as, is it stroller friendly? Do they have kids meals? Also, what kind of kids meals? Because our toddler is picky. Is it fresh and at least moderately healthy? Do they have dairy-free options? How about vegetarian? I guess we’re picky too. And how much are we talking here?
Luckily Moe’s Southwest Grill, which is locally owned and operated, and just opened about five minutes from us, solves all of these problems. Immediately when you walk in, you get a “Welcome to Moe’s!” and a family-friendly vibe. The bright colors and fun decor – all music related, since “Moe’s” stands for “Musicians, Outlaws, and Entertainers” – actually impressed my toddler, who remarked about how cool it was.
The menu is pretty straight-forward with staple Southwest food items, like tacos, burritos, and quesadillas. The awesome thing is that you can customize them any way you want, with different meat or non-meat options, and over 20 fresh ingredients. This is important for us because I’m still on the non-dairy diet, and we are currently cutting back on meat as well.
Our menu from our last visit? Soft tacos with red meat (to satisfy my craving) and tofu burritos (my husband’s). Both full of fresh vegetables like peppers, mushrooms, and corn, as well as rice and beans. I feel good about the meats even with us cutting back, because they consistently grill their proteins, keeping them fresh and hot.
And we got Theo a quesadilla, although we probably shouldn’t have bothered. His main focus was demolishing the mountain of free chips and salsa that came with the meal. That’s right, FREE flash-fried-daily chips and salsa. No need to adjust your screen.
Obviously we’re becoming a bit more conscious about what we eat, which includes looking for foods that are fresh and healthy. Our experience at Moe’s proves they have a freshness you can taste. The salsas and guacamole (which I sprang for, since sour cream and cheese are out) are chopped, diced, mixed, and made from scratch. The fresh-grilled flavor and all the veggies are delicious and enough to fill us up, with leftovers besides.
Plus, there is space for the stroller at our Moe’s, as well as booths, which we all know are perfect for corralling distractible toddlers. All in all, Moe’s is a fantastic option for us to eat out, as picky and unpredictable of a party as we can be. Already, I’m craving more steak tacos.
