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

Great BBQ. A PACKED PLACE. Really enjoyed the BBQ sandwich. The fried hot dog was good. It wasn't fried but grilled. But good. A sweet bbq sauce. Very good. A place to good again and again.

I don't mean to disparage the ribs, they are perfectly cooked and flavorful, but the pulled pork is the star of the show. No frills BBQ at a great price! $35.00 will feed 4 easily. The decor is somewhere between a truckstop men's room and a tool shed. The staff is friendly and helpful. It is counter service and serve... More

Please set your watch to 1960 before entering, and you will feel right at home. The Burgers and Q are the best. Family Friendly, No Smoking or Alcohol, just Good Food.
