We started going to Andy's in 2006 and it was great oversized meals that you could not finish, the combo meals of ribs, brisket and sausage were so good, but each time that we have gone back over the last few years the food has got very average, this time the ribs did not fall of the bone and the...

For every one who knows me, they know i know what BBQ means! I am recognized a pit master. So whileon business in the area, driving back to my hotel, saw this Andy's BBQ,and though not hungry (dinner time), decided to give it a try. No ambiance. No atmosphere. Looks like any fast food chain, but with very very old... More

I like the barbecue here, but I like Sam's Barbeque better. I just like good barbecue period. If you can't go to Sam's, go here.

Atmosphere is nothing exciting, but you're coming there for the food. Excellent BBQ, especially the chicken, in my opinion. Really good (and free with the meals) garlic bread as well. Place is clean, service is prompt, food was great!

Went out with friends from work place. Great place if you like your meat BBQ'd. The garlic bread that come complementary had a wood smoky flavour to it. It was excellent. The ribs are their specialty. I had the brisket and pork shoulder. Great dishes. The price was reasonable, and the service was great. It even has a parking lot.... More

This restaurant has been around for a long time. Used to be in Campbell and now located on the El Camino. This was my first visit to their new location and I wasn't disappointed. The baby back ribs were delicious, as usual. Delicious garlic bread too. Great place to go if you love bbq!

Andy's is a Silicon Valley tradition. Now located a stone's throw away from the San Tomas Expressway on El Camino, Andy's smokes 'em, slices 'em, and serves 'em. You can pig out, literally, with one of the meat plates. I prefer to eat one of Andy's pulled pork sandwiches open face with a side of cole slaw (not too sweet,... More

Visited on a Friday night and sat at the bar. The food was good, extensive Bar B Que menu. Portions are very generous. The bartender Meagan was very friendly. Nothing better than a friendly bartender. We would visit again. One of the few restaurants in the area that were not Korean or Thai
