Mo’s Pizza, Westwego, LA Report #122


I hadn’t thought about Mo’s in years until a guy I work with mentioned it.  He was born here in New Orleans but his parents are from Sicily.  And when someone calls him Italian he says, “I’m not Italian, I’m Sicilian”.  But then he also brags he wasn’t in the Navy, but in the Seabees, so he’s possibly slightly retarded.

Either way, he told me his son brought him some spaghetti and meatballs from Mo’s telling him the meatballs were just like grandmaw used to make.  He agreed, the meatballs were pretty close to the ones his mom (now deceased) was famous for making.  With an endorsement like that I figured I’d go get some.  I was in the mood for pizza, anyway.

The city of Westwego is located about 14 miles southwest of the French Quarter in New Orleans.  Mo’s is in a building that looks like a warehouse, but pretty enough on the inside with a huge dining room.  For lunch we decided on the Blue Cheese Wedge Salad, 1/2 Mo’s Muffaletta, 1/2 Spaghetti & Meatballs and a small 1/2 cheese, 1/2 supreme pizza.

The wedge salad was huge and very good.  The bacon was included in a little ziplock bag in it.  I’m not sure why they did that unless they make them ahead of time maybe, but put the dressing on it when you order it.  I know the dressing had to just have been added because the lettuce was still nice and crisp.  The dressing was also very good.  Plenty of nice chunks of blue cheese.

The muffaletta was also very good.  I’ve had better, but if you’re in the mood for one, it’s definitely worth ordering.

The spaghetti and meatballs were delicious.  Angel hair pasta, which I prefer, a delicious marinara and the meatball was awesome.  Not too bread crumby and seasoned perfectly.

Finally, there is nothing “small” about their small pizza.  The thing is HUGE!  You can use the full size dinner plates at the top left of it for scale.  It was also delicious.  They make great pizza.

Great place.  I highly recommend it.

Lunch at Mo’s today.  One slice of cheese and one slice of muffuletta pizza.  Plus an Italian sausage po-boy.  Only thing I didn’t care for was the sandwich had too much sauce on it.  Sometimes I’d take a bite and get no meat.  Just bread and sauce.  So if you order one you might want to request they go light on the sauce.
