In an era of kobe hamburgers, and elite burgers that you are charged a hefty price for, mac and joes stands alone as the best burger I have had anywhere. Cooked to perfection, crusty outside, with any thing you want on it, it is not to miss in oxford. Tucked in an alley, it looks like a sketchy place. But... More

While the food was very good and everything tasted amazing, service was a bit slow. Now mind you, they were very busy and had a large crowd of people while only having 2 servers. Overal it was all right.

If you go to Oxford and not have a burger from Mac & Joe's... You haven't been on Oxford. They are the best burgers I ever had. Best than Hardy's or Carls Jr.

If you don't mind the crowd and the noise - everyone is having a good time and you can tell from the noise level - this is a great place for lunch. We had chili, wings, and salads and everyone enjoyed their meal. This place has been around since at least the late 70's so it is always fun to... More

Yeah, yeah, yeah. Mac & Joe's. Whoopidy-do! Am I the only one getting extremely tired of this place? The older I get, the more expensive the menu gets, the cheaper the product becomes, the more good items they drop from the menu, the more annoying the student clientele gets, the more vocal the wait staff becomes, the grosser the bathroom...

I've ate there a half dozen times and it's always the same......GREAT!!! The menu has alot of things on it but my all time favorites are the burgers! You have to order them like you do your steaks. I get my "medium". I swear it's a 1/2 pound burger AFTER it's cooked! Melts in your mouth! They used to have... More

Great college atmosphere. Great beer. Great service. The food is the weak point. Stick with the burgers.

Mac and Joe's was recommended to us by a friend. Ate there while we were in town for Miami U orientation. Big, thick and meaty burgers! Fries were great. Salad and chili were fabulous. Would go again!

I was a little put off when we had to walk through an alley to get to this place. Don't let it dissuade you. Four out of the five of us ordered burgers and claim them to be the best we've ever had. Seriously! I don't know what makes them so good but served with a side of tater tots,... More

Mac & Joe's is indeed an Oxford classic and tradition, even historic. It's the oldest bar in Oxford. Over the many years, bars come and go, but for 40+ years, Mac & Joe's is still there. My favorite are the "grilled" wings. Ask for the wings grilled, they are the best wings in the world if grilled. Cold beer and... More
