Ordered turkey sub without mayo but they put it on any way. Glad I just don't like mayo instead of being allergic. Waitress offered to have them remake but it already took a while for them to bring us our food any way. I just scrapped it off. Turkey was good otherwise. Not sure why it was so slow because...

Fabulous Smokehouse burger...they have got it down and do it right. Good selection of beers...mixed drinks need some work (Hint: Train your bar staff!). Good chicken wings and sandwiches. A must go if you are in or around the Oxford area!

If you're in Oxford, OH, then you know your food options are extremely limited. I had heard about Mac & Joe's and decided to give the place a try. It's a little hard to find, since it's tucked in a back alley. It really does have a hole in the wall feel but it lacks the good food you'd expect... More

We went here today first time. We walked in toward bar and Sarah said rudely, there is a wait. I said can we eat at bar? Her response was if I get time to clean it off... Then she walked off. We sat at bar, after ten minutes she asked what we wanted, I said Bloody Mary's. She literally sighed... More

We stopped in at Mac & Joe's while we were out riding the motorcycle. The main entrance is really just a door in an alley, but I we loved how "hole in the wall" it felt. There were a bunch of old bar flies arguing over basketball, with a mix of younger college kids. We just drank some cokes and... More

Tucked away in an alley of High Street, Mac and Joes is a hidden gem. The bar has a great beer selection, they have giant salads with amazing homemade ranch dressing (my favorite is the Redbrick BLT by the Pasta Chicken is a favorite of many others), and giant chicken wings. Go Monday for the 50 cent wings!

This place has an authentic vibe and is known as a calm and friendly alternative to some of the rowdier college-town bars. The bar food is a cut above. My roasted turkey sub was simple and yummy; husband's bacon and bleu cheese burger was huge and extraordinarily delicious. Side salads are ample and cheap, a great option. Add in a... More

Kind of a hole in the wall place in an alley in downtown Oxford, but it's a great little place with terrific burgers and beer. We also tried the fried mac and cheese balls. Yum. We were there on a Friday night and there were lots of college student and a upbeat vibe in the place.

Cheeseburgers are awesome! The tater tots were ok. The Chicken wings were very good, too. We have been before and the sandwiches are all well made and flavorful. There is a good beer selection. Unfortunately, it is hidden down an alley but ask one of the college kids and they will point you in the right direction! Good food value!
