We have had Andy's before and I even used them for my daughters graduation party,which was perfect! But the last time we are there it was in person. The service was okay but the food wasn't as good as the last time we had their food It was a bit disappointing. We will probably try them again... read more

Worst service I've ever experienced. Waited 35 mins at the bar before we were greeted and asked what we wanted. There were only 5 people at the bar and after the bartender gave us a menu she didn't ask if we wanted anything to drink. After ordering our drinks and food we waited another 20 minutes for our salads and... More

1st point is possibly my mistake. Cultural gap : i was expecting the barbeque to be charcoal grilled beef. I got meat impregnated with chemical tasting BBQ (or smoke) flavor. Maybe ok with ribs or hamburger. A good American NY Steak is just spoiled with the treatment, i feel. 2nd point, well, i did take the NY Steak "large cut".... More

Popped in here for a quick dinner. Wasn't after anything special but was served up an excellent pork shoulder, well seasoned and just the right level of smokey flavor. Good size portion too! Washed down with a good beer combined with a nice easy going atmosphere, I certainly would return for a no-frills, solid bar-b-que food!

Right next to my hotel and recommended by them. This is a local place, nothing fancy, but very good food. Local crowd, which in this area could be students-professors, entrepreneurs, and blue collar workers. A great mix of folks and everyone made to feel comfortable. Fine selection of barbeque choices. I had a combo platter of ribs and brisket, with... More

I enjoyed my 3 meet platter at Andy's. Only thing that missed the mark was the Baby Back Ribs that there was an up charge for, too tough and fat. The brisket and pork shoulder were outstanding. I will return when in Santa Clara next visit.

For every one who knows me, they know i know what BBQ means! I am recognized a pit master. So while on business in the area, driving back to my hotel on El Camino, 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... More

My Dad's wife was craving ribs, so we decided to try this place during their visit. I had the brisket which was done just right and it was very tender. It wasn't too dry and had just the right smoky flavor to it. The BBQ sauce options are both delicious and I prefer the sweet option. I had the baked... More

Had dinner here on first evening of arrival in the USA after a long flight. We wanted somewhere that wasn't part of a big chain, offered simple, tasty food, and was good value. Andy's delivered on all counts. I had the biggest burger I've ever seen, even on "Man vs Food". It was nicely char-grilled and tasted as good at... More

Baby back ribs are tender and tasty. Dry, not overly basted with bbq sauce just like I like-'em. Hot BBQ sauce is yummy. Oak smoked flavor not over powering, just the right taste for my buds. Salad could have had cold plates, but tasty anyway. My wife loved her baked potato. My potato salad was average. An excellent experience for... More
