Best REAL Burger In Town

If you're looking for a kind of "hole in the wall" place, with actual real, burgers (and amazing tots) then Handy Andy's is your place to go. Inexpensive, real meat used, local cooks, really good tater tots, and more. If you're looking for a fancier place that just also happens to have burgers... read more

I was visiting people in Oxford and was getting ready to leave when they suggested lunch. We went to Handy Andy's and I was told they have great burgers. When we arrived at the place, it looked rather dumpy. However, when I was walking across the parking lot, I got the familiar smell that comes from ground beef sizzling on... More

The name sounds like a grocery store but it's a small place with great burgers. The locals eat lunch here but it's not a well known place.

Great food, great prices, great BBQ joint ambiance! What more is there to say other than don't waste your time or money in Oxford for BBQ anywhere else. BTW, the hamburgers are great as well.

Handy Andys had decent greasy spoon type food, and the prices are reasonable (particularly for Oxford). However, the service is down right horrible. The staff, and particularly the lady who I have been told is the owner, are not friendly, and act like they are doing you a favor by serving you their mediocre food. This is one of the... More

Had lunch here and was impressed. The BBQ was juicy and was full of flavor. The place is in an old building so you may overlook it. Don't judge the food by the building. You won't be sorry, the food is great!!

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.
