In 1947, a couple of years after returning home from WWII, brothers Moe and Joe Krinsky opened their tavern in Virginia-Highland, specializing in cold beer, hot dogs, and hamburgers. They partly owed their early success to the fact that they were situated so close to the line of a then dry Dekalb County. In 1949 they hired their first employee, the legendary Mr. Horace McKinnie, who served the patrons of Moe's&Joe's until his retirement in 2001. In the mid 1950's Pabst Blue Ribbon was put on tap, and millions of glasses later, people still come to the bar to savor "The Finest." Moe's&Joe's became popular with the Georgia Tech and Emory crowds, a custom that continues today. Moe and Joe sold their interest in the 1960's, but today's owners have done their best to continue the proud traditions and service they set forth. So, stop on in for a cold Pabst Blue Ribbon, Atlanta's Best Wings, or our original mojo burger.

This bar is as dirty as you're going get in the Highlands. That's a complement from someone who appreciates a lack of pretense & some comfortable, worn-in digs.

They have cheap burgers, cheap brew (including local Sweetwater 420), drunken frat brother scrawl on the walls & more.

If you haven't been to Moe's and Joe's in the Highlands, you are missing one of Atlanta's great casual dive bars. Neighborhood bar with relaxing outdoor seating right in the middle of Virginia-Highlands. Since 1947!

Best place in Atlanta to meet up with friends and enjoy a drink and pub food. Comfortable environment, good service, good selection of beers.

You can never go wrong with PBR and delicious fried food! I loves this place in my 20s and I still love it!

Classic college beer joint. No frills and they serve PBR! Good to watch a sports game with a cold one.
