Moe’s is the newest restaurant to open in Radford, Virginia. Located on Tyler Avenue right across the street from Radford University, the casual Mexican joint has a lot of college students hooked. According to General Manager, Joe Poscillio, even after a month of being open, a lot of business is still coming through the doors.
Drawn in by the buzz, I decided to try out Moe’s myself. As I walked in the front door, I was hit with excitement and energy from the workers as they yelled in unison a friendly, “Welcome to Moe’s!” The bright and colorful restaurant was packed with Radford students, enjoying the delicious food. Poscillio describes Moe’s atmosphere as, “fun, energetic and inviting. When you first walk in the doors the atmosphere is really welcoming.” He could not have said it any better than that. Walking around and seeing everyone having fun and enjoying their food was an amazing experience.
Poscillio has been working at Moe’s for about three months and said he loves his position, the atmosphere, and the location of the restaurant. Poscillio said the food at Moe’s is so popular because, “it’s quick and convenient. Who doesn’t like a burrito?”Most of us could agree with this statement. Many of us like foods that are full of flavor and that can satisfy our hunger for something fast and easy. As college students we also like food that’s good as well as affordable. I asked Kestin Currie, a Radford University student, about the food and how she enjoyed it and she said, “the chicken was really good and I enjoyed the chips and queso very much. It was my first time going and I really enjoyed the experience.”
So what is Poscillio’s favorite item on the menu and what would he recommend to guests? “Burrito bowl (Earmuffs) with cilantro lime rice. It’s packed and full of flavor and I recommend the Homewrecker burrito.” The menu is full of different things to eat from taco salad to nachos to tacos to traditional burritos. There are also no limits to the amount of delicious items that you can use to stuff your tacos or burritos or top off your nachos or salads. Everything can be personalized to your liking which is the great thing about Moe’s. The people are inviting, the food is delicious, and you can make the food your own. Throughout the community, everyone seems to be enjoying the new edition to the Radford fast food scene. Moe’s is definitely making its big impact on campus.
