Really miss going to their old location by the prune yard in San Jose. It just had that old town charm. The food is still great at their new place but really miss the rustic charm of the old place.

After trying several places (Sam's, Uncle Franks, etc), Andy's has been a long-time favorite. Starts with smoky grilled garlic bread, then go for a combo-- and make sure to substitute the baby-back ribs for the spare ribs, you will NOT be disappointed. The brisket is so tender, as well as the pork shoulder, the chicken is juicy, and the sausages (there's even a sausage sampler plate) are fantastic. It's all smoked and salt-n-pepper rubbed, so nothing in the way of the deep, smoky meaty taste. The meat really speaks for itself and they have the confidence to serve the (really really good) sauce ON THE SIDE where it belongs. Peach cobbler at the end is really more of an upside down cake, but it is fab as well. Great service, and food to die for!

This is my husbands favorite BBQ. He loves Andy's. There garlic fire-roasted bread is the best - be careful because you will fill up on this. You just have to go and try Andy's and you will keep going back. The place is small but the food is AWESOME

Pros: everthing

Cons: nothing

Andy's is one of the best BBQ places in the area. The ribs and brisket are outstanding and the prices are reasonable.

The old location in Campbell was a dive but the new location in Santa Clara is definitely nicer but still has the ambience that you would look for in a BBQ joint.

i went to eat here on a whim- saw the place with a friend while we were looking for a restuarant that served beef. The front door to this place is pretty much hidden, and very heavy. Waitresses attended to us pretty quicky on a weekend day

I went hear with a friend that wanted to go to Armadillo Willy's. I suggested we try this place and I'm glad I did. It is far better than Armadillo Willys. I had half a barbequed chicken with barbeque beans and garlic bread. My friend had

I love Andys... best tri-tip and brisket!! They have great prices and you dont leave on an empty stomach and you dont leave without a doggie bag. It is not a fancy place but great for the whole family + kids.

Pros: BBQ sause

Cons: does not look like the old andys

My spare ribs were definitely not "fall off the bone" and a little dry, but very smokey and tasted pretty good. My bf and I both agreed that the "hot link" looked like a hot link, but tasted like a big spicey breakfast sausage. The baked

Pros: large portions

Cons: decor

This is the best BBQ food you will ever eat. The restaurant looks like a dive from the outside, and inside the decor isn't much better, but the food more than makes up for it - it's wonderful. the menu is very limited, but what they sell tastes great. There's no frills - formica tables, paper napkins, choice of 2 salad dressings. The food is served on heavy/chipped white pottery, but if you close your eyes, you'll love to taste the food.
