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

I was in from Canada for work. Sick of eating at chains for lunch my colleague and I started to drive in search of something different. We drove into Andy's lot---good choice. My colleague does not eat beef or pork so I was a little worried but there was chicken and turkey, he had a turkey burger which he said... More

There’s no such thing as bad BBQ – only disappointing BBQ. The plusses – a really good BBQ sauce (be sure to ask for the spicy version), and decent beans. The minuses – the pulled pork and brisket, while tender, had no discernable flavor of dry rub, wet mop or smoke. Oh, and did I mention a pint of beer... More
