This post is sponsored by Moe’s Southwest Grill; however, all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.
As our family has grown, eating at a restaurant has become more of a rare treat and less of a frequent occurrence. We have 5 children to feed, plus I try to feed our family healthier options and lower carb for myself. Grabbing a poor quality meal makes me cringe, but finding fresh and quick meals outside the house can be a challenge.
I was recently asked to visit Moe’s Southwest Grill and thought it would be a great opportunity to try a restaurant that we hadn’t been to before. Knowing very little about the food they offered, I looked at the Moe’s online menu to find out more. To my surprise, I found out that Moe’s has a wide variety of over 20 fresh toppings that can be used to create your own perfect meal. Protein options include grass-fed steak, all-natural chicken, pork carnitas, 100% ground beef or organic tofu. Even more surprising is that Moe’s chicken is grilled every hour!
After finding this out, the kids loaded up and we headed right over to Moe’s Southwest Grill to give it a whirl. I am so glad we did!
Upon opening the door to the restaurant, we were instantly greeted with “Welcome to Moe’s” by all the employees! From there, we checked out the menu again to make our selections. Entree options included Burritos, Junior Burritos, Tacos, Quesadillas, Nachos, Salads, Stacks, Kids Meal options, and more!
A salad was my choice since I’m eating lower carb. I had them put the salad in a plastic dish instead of the taco bowl. From there I had a hard time making decisions! So many great protein options and toppings! I ended up selecting black beans, all-natural chicken, cheese, fresh salsa, guacamole, sour cream, a few fresh jalapeños to give it a little bite, and topping it off with chipotle ranch dressing.
My husband chose a burrito with all of his favorite toppings, which was almost everything. The employees were able to stuff his burrito like pros! I’m amazed at how efficient they are at getting super stuffed burritos rolled up! My older 2 children usually eat off the adult menu, so they chose a stack and a burrito. The younger 3 chose off the kids meals and selected 2 quesadillas and a burrito. Everyone was happy with their selection and being able to customize their entree however they liked. With 7 family members, each of us prefers something a little different from the others.
At checkout, I was surprised to see my total was much lower than I had anticipated. When I inquired to make sure they had rung everything up correctly, I was pleased to find out that on the day we were visiting, kids could eat free with an adult meal! That meant that all 3 little kids were able to get their meals for free and we just paid for the 4 adult entrees. I was one happy mama to find that out! Be sure to call your local Moe’s and see if they offer a Kid’s Eat Free night.
Made fresh each morning, Moe’s salsa is sure to please everyone. My almost 2 year old enjoyed it immensely with his quesadilla and chips. Speaking of chips, free unlimited chips and salsa are included with every order! All of the salsas and guacamole are prepared from scratch daily and taste great. Sampling the salsas from the bar was a hit with my kids. They love to try spicy things! El Guapo was my favorite.
After all of the bellies were filled, my kids asked if we could come back to Moe’s again. My answer? Certainly! I was so pleased with the fresh selection and taste of the food and the price overall for my family. Most importantly, no one left the restaurant hungry!
