This place looks like a dump, not going to sugar coat it, and I would not usually go to a place like this however my husband said just go in and let's see if it's good food, so I did and WOW I'm from Memphis and love BBQ, and I have to say.... Best BBQ I have ever had, we... More

It's amazing how consistently delicious the barbecue is at Handy Andy's. In the local newspaper's poll, for the tenth year in a row, Handy Andy was selected as the best barbecue restaurant in Oxford. On weekdays at lunch, the restaurant is almost always packed, and there is often a line for ordering. Friends tell us that the hamburgers and cheeseburgers... More

Had a great time at Handy Andy this past weekend. The burgers are fresh, and melt in your mouth. It is worth the trip.

I've only been there a few times with co-workers, but it's got to be good because it is always packed! Highly recommend the pulled pork plate.

I don't even know where to start, it was all so good. Hamburger, fantastic. Baked beans had bits of pulled pork. Mustard based potato salad. Banana pudding that is simply some of the best. All for way under ten dollars. I would be here weekly if I lived here.

One of the last glimpses of "old" Oxford. Lots of locals and plenty of university students, faculty, and staff eat here. The decor is nothing to write home about, but it's comfortable and the staff is invariably friendly and welcoming.

When I am in Oxford I occasionally visit Handy Andy's. It is good. I usually get the large barbecue sandwich and it is large. It is always crowded at lunch but worth the visit.

I've learned that looks often deceive in Mississippi when it comes to finding good food. That is definitely the case here. Once you enter the door, you're greeted by a couple if chest freezers and the bathrooms. Close your eyes and just keep walking. You will see a lot of the locals here- which is always a good sign.
