I felt the pulled pork had a sour vinegar taste. Based on the other reviews, everyone else seems to like it. I guess it's just not my choice of flavor. The others at my table also felt the pork had an odd vinegar taste but...More

There are picnic tables and places to sit and eat but Andy Nelson's is first and foremost a carryout. Outstanding pit beef and pulled pork is offered in different sizes. Great ribs (I personally like them better than the Corner Stable's ribs). Service is quick....More

I've had this food at catered office functions... And I've taken friends and family to lunch there. I like the pulled Turkey. However... I have to say, I find anything in bbq sauce WAY too overly salty, which really ruins it for me. :(

Once I celebrated a birthday dinner here and we live more than an hour away. We’ve tried most everything on the menu but is the smoked biscuit sandwich a secret item?

Regular patron. Always love to go there. One of the best parts is talking with Andy sr. Jr is a nice guy too, but you can't beat an original! Everything's always great, but Catfish Friday is an unbeatable Cockeysville tradition. Don't miss it.
