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.
You won’t be disappointed.
