They FINALLY take credit/debit. Yay!

Mo's is really hit or miss with several things:

The bartenders vary in skill/drink mixing -- so sometimes you get a really strong, well made drink... other times it's weak or poorly mixed.

The waitresses are usually friendly, but there just aren't enough of them. Usually there's only 1 when the place is packed.

The DJs are usually pretty good, but sometimes it seems as though they don't watch or pay attention to their crowd. When the music's good, it's good and people dance the night away on a rather compact dance floor.

I've never had the food, so I can't comment on that.

They have a decent number of TVs if you're there to watch sports.

The crowd is interesting. Usually the crowd is mostly late 20s to early 50s African-Americans. More often than not there are several creep 40-50 with few manners, looking for some young, which is just NOT OK. I've seen a lot of couples here on dates, so I suppose it's an OK date spot. Also, there are a lot of regulars.

Overall the experience is never BAD, and there's never a dull moment. I keep coming back b/c it's in the neighborhood and it's just an overall chill spot to go.
