“The best burger anywhere!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

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, you can't beat it!

“An Oxford Classic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

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 grilled wings, it doesn't get any better in Oxford.

“Good bar food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

The mac and cheese balls were a great snack. I would recommend a burger, not a salad. It's solid bar food with good beer.

“Great Lunch!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

Place we planned to eat was closed for lunch.
Best answer?: Ask a local. We did.
A bit hidden away in an alley off the main drag in a college town is a sorta local bar ‘n grill. Mac ‘n Joe’s.
Cozy, clean, and pleasant atmosphere. Friendly staff and moderately paced.
Focus is up-scale bar basket food. Large baskets. A dozen 10 oz. creative burgers top the menu. Tacos, wings, other sandwiches. Big salads.
I had BLT basket from the chalkboard. Wife had chicken tacos. Son had real wings. Our traveling friend had the lead burger. Several ample side options available.
All were satisfying and scrumptious.
It’s one of those places one wants to revisit to try other selections.
About $10 pp including drink and tip.
Highly recommended – I suspect it turns into a college bar in the evening.

“Great Bar food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

Great bar food- the burgers rock, the sandwiches are great. The service is s l o w...and the setting is a bar - which usually smells like 'last night they tied one on'. I prefer carryout - but love the food.
