Fun, Local BarBeQue

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.

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

We were here for a simple dinner the other night. We had baby back ribs and were not disappointed. I recommend the hot barbeque sauce. This is not an upscale place, but a relaxed, causal place and the good thing with that is that it is not too expensive. I can see myself coming back to this restaurant.

This restaurant moved from Campbell a few years ago, and although I did like the ambiance of the old place, the food is the same. Friendly staff, can accommodate parties, great garlic bread, and chicken and steaks made to order.
