My family loves their burgers! They are juicy but crispy around the edges! Their tater tots are really good too! Locals place for sure!

Not too hungry, we just split a burger and tater tots. It is safe to say that I can recommend this place too! A really good burger at “cheaper than most” prices. A college student’s dream! Rebel fans, you’re fortunate to have Handy Andy’s Grocery.

First visit to Handy Andy and I can't wait to go back. First, its a locals place for sure and there's nothing fancy about it. Everyone is very friendly! Reminds me of an old lunch diner. I had a cheeseburger and fries. The burger tasted just like what my dad would make on the griddle. Even the bun in steamed.... More

This is a VERY popular place and very good. The BBQ is good, hamburgers are good....those are the only things I've tried. French fries are okay. You go through a line to place your order at the counter...not much time to look over the menu. Then they call out numbers, and you have to go back and pick it up.... More

This is my favorite BBQ joint in Oxford. The environment is what you would expect at a small town southern diner. The menu is fast food items, burgers, bbq sandwiches, etc... but the food doesn't come out quick as it's made to order. The prices aren't too bad either, expect $6 - $10 per meal. I recommend the pulled pork... More

Best BBQ in Oxford! Fun and friendly atmosphere. The cheeseburger is one of the best value for your money choices in Oxford!

Went to Handy Andy for lunch and it was quite good. We had ribs and the smoked turkey, very good. Our daughter really liked the cheeseburger. This is a comfy, family place that we really enjoyed. There's plenty for younger kids on the menu. We'll come back on our next visit to Oxford in the fall.

If you are looking for a cheeseburger that has a bunch of bells and whistles then go somewhere else. If you want an old school killer cheeseburger then this is the place to come. Everytime I come home to oxford this is always a must stop. My mouth is watering just thinking about it.

An Oxford tradition for over 30 years, Handy Andy has won the local newspaper's best burger vote 14 years in a row (an exaggeration, I'm sure, but the other great burger joint, The Long Shot, closed five years ago). The BBQ ribs are good, too.

I had read some good reviews online. So I had to check this place out. So maybe I had high expectations. Unfortunately, the food was not seasoned the way I prefer. The place is usually packed. The prices were good. But, sadly, we ended up throwing our food away even though we barely touched it. Also, the staff was not... More
