Service is personable, friendly and engaging. The same people have owned and run this deli for 30 years and they are just as warm and friendly as they were when they opened. The decor is the same too-not even kidding. Andy's is basically a local USC tradition/hangout with really good food, but you don't go there for ambience. All of... More

Love the Andy's special with the special sauce. And love the crushed ice in the sweet tea. Not a big fan of the salads. Plenty of meat and cheese, but not enough veggies for my taste. Andy's Deli is a real treat.

After a day at the Riverbanks Zoo, it was a great relief to find just the right spot to satisfy my kids' appetites, as well as my own. Each of us has our own favorite sandwich, but we all agree that Andy's unique dipping sauce is awesome!

Andy's Deli has been staple in Columbia's Five Points since, well, forever. This should tell you something. So many choices and all are yummy (the Andy's Special is my personal favorite). Whether you're a local or visiting the Columbia area, this place is a must try my dear!

Andy's is nice for a quick bite if you're in a hurry. The salads are good and so are the sandwiches.

Perfection, end of story.. eat here promptly.. Only two things missing.. Matzah ball soup (A Jewish deli with out matzah ball soup is almost sacrilege) MUCH larger portions.. Katz/Carnegie/Arties blow this place out of the water because they stuff you silly and have Jewish penicillin on tap.. Other than that, Perfect!!!!

In 5 Points, near USC is one of the best sandwich shops around. My husband always gets Andy's special and I always get the roast beef dip supreme. There is a 'special sauce' that is reminiscent of Thousand Island that is for sandwich dipping. This place is always a winner.

We stopped at Andy's for lunch on a quiet weekday after the end of spring semester at USC. We loved all the USC memorabilia. Service was very friendly. Sandwiches and a salad were okay, simple but tasty.
