Patrons are greeted by employees shouting "Welcome to Moe's!" when they enter. Moe's started with 2 locations in 2001. Currently, there are over 350 locations in operation in 35 states with 800 more franchise deals signed and awaiting construction.

Tortilla Chips

All items except for fajitas and salads are served with a side of fresh tortilla chips.

Free refills are offered on chips.

Another popular side item is the queso dip. It consists of melted white American cheese, heavy cream, and jalapeño peppers.

Atmosphere

The music

According to the official website [2], "Moe wanted to pay tribute to his heroes who have passed on and would never have a chance to taste his food." (Bearing in mind that "Moe" does not exist.) Because of that, most of the music played at the restaurants either is that of a group with a deceased member, or a solo artist who passed on (e.g., The Beatles, Elvis, Marvin Gaye, Jackie Wilson, Queen, Grateful Dead). Most of the rest of a typical Moe's ambient music playlist is made up of rock, soul, and disco hits from the 1960s to the 1980s (eg. "Take Your Time (Do It Right)" by The SOS Band, "Don't Leave Me This Way" by Thelma Houston). The White Album, see The Beatles (album). ...

The Walls

Up until sometime in 2005, all of the wall hangings were paintings of dead rock stars depicting many of the same artists that patrons can hear playing over the music system. Several of the artists' estates objected to the display of these paintings without proper permission. The paintings were all replaced with ones of various menu items such as nachos, burritos, and quesadillas accompanied by sarcastic sayings across the border like "If you don't have fun saying guacamole, then you're probably pronouncing it wrong." and "Eat hard tacos while you still have teeth." The paintings are signed by a man named Al Greene. Year 2005 (MMV) was a common year starting on Saturday (link displays full calendar) of the Gregorian calendar. ...
