They use a very good smokey flavor that truly makes the meet moist and tender. They cater which is a plus for BBQ now a days. My only complaint is that the restaurant needs a make over and the staff at times tend to talk way too much and yell in the restaurant.

On the evening of February 6, 2016 I dined at Andy's BBQ. My acquaintance with Andy's BBQ goes back to the 1970's when they where located in Campbell ca. Andy's can be easily found on the El Camino Real, just look for a trailer with a large BBQ smoker in front of the restaurant. You will notice when you arrive... More

Worst service I've ever experienced. Waited 35 mins at the bar before we were greeted and asked what we wanted. There were only 5 people at the bar and after the bartender gave us a menu she didn't ask if we wanted anything to drink. After ordering our drinks and food we waited another 20 minutes for our salads and... More

We have had Andy's before and I even used them for my daughters graduation party,which was perfect! But the last time we are there it was in person. The service was okay but the food wasn't as good as the last time we had their food It was a bit disappointing. We will probably try them again, hopefully next time... More

1st point is possibly my mistake. Cultural gap : i was expecting the barbeque to be charcoal grilled beef. I got meat impregnated with chemical tasting BBQ (or smoke) flavor. Maybe ok with ribs or hamburger. A good American NY Steak is just spoiled with the treatment, i feel. 2nd point, well, i did take the NY Steak "large cut".... More

Popped in here for a quick dinner. Wasn't after anything special but was served up an excellent pork shoulder, well seasoned and just the right level of smokey flavor. Good size portion too! Washed down with a good beer combined with a nice easy going atmosphere, I certainly would return for a no-frills, solid bar-b-que food!

Right next to my hotel and recommended by them. This is a local place, nothing fancy, but very good food. Local crowd, which in this area could be students-professors, entrepreneurs, and blue collar workers. A great mix of folks and everyone made to feel comfortable. Fine selection of barbeque choices. I had a combo platter of ribs and brisket, with... More

I enjoyed my 3 meet platter at Andy's. Only thing that missed the mark was the Baby Back Ribs that there was an up charge for, too tough and fat. The brisket and pork shoulder were outstanding. I will return when in Santa Clara next visit.
