Steak Sandwich with pizza sauce is the best. Hasn't changed since we were students at Miami University over 50 years ago.

We were told Mac & Joe's was the "consummate Miami U experience", and we're glad we found it in the off season. Not easy to find, even with directions, but worth going to. The interior is cozy, welcoming, come-as-you-are comfy. My husband ordered the Mac burger, and he was pretty happy with it. Chips were average, abundant. I ordered a... More

Mac & Joe's is down an alley off the high street but it is worth looking for. It had very much a local community feel. The sandwiches and salads were great. No problems with customizing mine due to dietary requirements. If I lived in Oxford, this would be my weekly treat.

Stopped in for lunch. Staff was super and seems like a fun place to throw some back, but the "jumbo wings" were far from that and overpriced. Sauce was good.

The ambiance is late 1940's bar. Nothing's changed since 1946. And it's all good. Wish we had a homey place like that in my town!

We love this place. Every time I visit my son at Miami, we need to stop here, even if it's for a beer and mac and cheese bites!

I was in Oxford Ohio for a cycling tour. Went to Mac & Joe's on the recommendation of Trip Advisor. The fish tacos very good but not great. Service was very good but the meal service was slow.

The portion is really big but it is so good. I got the salad (the biggest bowl of salad I ever seen) and my friend got the burger. She said it is the best burger she's ever had.
