I lived in Kansas for 8 years. Have been back home since 2010. I miss mid west style BBQ. I have driven by this place and wanted to try it out but thought a BBQ place in NY cannot compare....Boy was I WRONG!! Owners are...from the mid west and the food is like nothing you will find around here! Stopped in for the first time last night. We WILL be back! I am picky about BBQ. Food was EXCELLENT! My mom who isn't big on pulled pork, Ate half of mine!! Great prices, friendly sit down, home style service, and Kansas style BBQ. You will not be disappointed!!More

Everything was delicious. The meat fell right off the bone! A no-frills place with great owners who care about the food they make.

After spending hours on the road driving in New York state, my wife and I were getting very hungry. We saw great reviews of this tiny restaurant down a country road and decided to check it out. Wow! We were not disappointed. The ribs and...pulled pork were fantastic, tender and delicious and the coleslaw was tasty. Pat and Theresa, the two owners, an adorable older couple who keep their restaurant open Thursday through Sunday 4-9 pm, were friendly and warm, and happy to chat amicably. If I am up in the Oneonta area again in the future, I am definitely going there again.More

We were in the area visiting a friend and craving some BBQ. We were aware of other places in the area but none of them offered beef brisket...but Andres did! And boy was it AMAZING! Don't think about it... Just Go... You won't be disappointed....The owners were very friendly and personable and all of the food was OFF THE CHAIN..YUM!! Chicken fell off the bone, the ribs were tender and tasty, homemade sauces complimented the dry rub on all the meats! Overall, good old-fashioned finger lickin' BBQ!!More

We love Andre's pulled pork and ribs - always a winner. Buying by the pound is a fantastic deal! It was a long winter - we welcome Andre back!

Really enjoyed this place. Tried all meats & all were really tasty. Loved the buns & corn bread. Wish it was licensed but had BYOB.

Andre's Blue Ribbon BBQ is the real deal. No frills, just great food! We only wish they were open more often, but we will just have to make sure we hit them on their open days!
