Though Handy Andy has been around many years, my wife and I have only recently discovered this jewel. An old dairy bar feel to it that hasn't been updated probably since it opened - 1960s? Hamburgers and fries are outstanding and we believe the best in town. We've also ordered ribs for a family gathering and they were great as... More

Great little BBQ restaurant with all the trimmings. The hamburgers are some of the best in town. And if you've never had a fried hot dog then your missing out.

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- don't go here.

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.

Stopped by here with the family heading back down to Natchez. The place was packed at 1:30 on a Saturday afternoon. Wanted to try the ribs said they were out, so ordered the pork it was very good. Got sweat tea and went to fill another for my wife and was told it was around the corner, I said I... More

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!!
