It is what it is - and that is a college sports bar/restaurant with good bar food and typical college wait staff. We were perfectly satisfied. Very friendly staff. Meals were good - as expected. Reasonably priced. Would return and recommend for casual burger/bar food.

I had a moist and tasty burger with crisp fries and an apple cider and my buddy had an equally good turkey sandwich. Very friendly and efficient wait staff. Maybe best meal in Oxford.

Neat "dive bar" down an alley. Very clean and an upstairs and downstairs. College crowd so noise level was pretty high but the food was very good and reasonably priced. I would like to eat here again. I had the Philly Cheesesteak.

To start, the worst margarita I have ever tasted...told the server and she just walked away. Some of our food was cold...replaced it without a problem, but shouldn't have happened. The burger was OK, but not the quality I am used to at Mac and Joes...hope it was a fluke because this is my go to place to have a... More

Most college students love this place. The burger was good and service too. Pretty much a bar with bar food...

We decided to try Mac & Joes for lunch on Columbus Day. As has been mentioned the place is down an alley. The alley however is not a dark scary looking place. There are "streets" that are more narrow and darker than this alley. I had the Philly Cheesesteak sub which I have to say was ordinary. There was plenty... More

Mac & Joe's has been in the same location ( in an alley ) in downtown Oxford since the 1940's. It is not gourmet food but you will not be disappointed. Salads and sandwiches are excellent in both size and quality. My favorite is the Miami Tradition w/ mushrooms. Upstairs or downstairs either place is clean and enjoyable.

This is a great option for an excellent burger and cold beer. Typical college bar food experience. The burgers are huge and tasty.

I always love going to Mac & Joe's - it has a great atmosphere, very laid back and casual and plenty of tv's so you can catch a game and have a drink without having to deal with the noise from somewhere like BDubs. My favorite is the turkey gobbler - definitely give it and the mac n cheese bites... More
