If you don't mind the crowd and the noise - everyone is having a good time and you can tell from the noise level - this is a great place for lunch. We had chili, wings, and salads and everyone enjoyed their meal. This place has been around since at least the late 70's so it is always fun to stop in and remember the good old days!

Yeah, yeah, yeah. Mac & Joe's. Whoopidy-do! Am I the only one getting extremely tired of this place?
The older I get, the more expensive the menu gets, the cheaper the product becomes, the more good items they drop from the menu, the more annoying the student clientele gets, the more vocal the wait staff becomes, the grosser the bathroom gets, the greasier the outside ramp becomes, the wobblier the tables get, the more chairs fall apart, and the stickier the floors get...etc.
...but the burgers are good.
Look, it's college pub grub, surprise, surprise. Some will rave about the wings, but I don't think they are anything special. You be the judge. They do seem better when "crispy". The burgers, however, are fantastic. If you are in the mood for a good pub style burger, Mac's is your place. If you are an undergrad looking for a place to slug some beer down with your bros, Mac's is your place. If you are a working adult or a parent looking for a relatively quite and relaxing atmosphere to eat some pub grub, you've got to catch the magic window. Get there early before the coeds douche the place up.
Oh, and for some reason everybody thinks that steak grinders are REALLY special. Weird.

I've ate there a half dozen times and it's always the same......GREAT!!! The menu has alot of things on it but my all time favorites are the burgers! You have to order them like you do your steaks. I get my "medium". I swear it's a 1/2 pound burger AFTER it's cooked! Melts in your mouth! They used to have tater tots but have quit offering them so I always go for the fries. It is a bar so you can have your choice of alcoholic beverage and they have many to choose from. Oxford is the home of Miami University so there are always people to have fun with! The service is outstanding too!!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!

Great college atmosphere. Great beer. Great service. The food is the weak point. Stick with the burgers.

Mac and Joe's was recommended to us by a friend. Ate there while we were in town for Miami U orientation. Big, thick and meaty burgers! Fries were great. Salad and chili were fabulous. Would go again!
