I have driven past Andy’s on Markham darn near a million times but have only stopped once. That was for what turned out to be a fantastic fried catfish sandwich, and after posting about the delightful handheld, several folks started chiming in for support of Andy’s breakfast. 

 

Per usual, I was game for trying it out, so my friend and I met up one morning for what proved to be one of the better breakfasts in town. 

 

 

Andy’s itself is old-school, with faux-wood, 1970’s paneling throughout the interior and reasonable prices that almost feel like they’re from the same decade. Upon entry, just look up and take a gander at the menu above. The options are limited. That’s not a knock, just an observation. 

 

My recommendation? Go with the Full Breakfast. It offers a little bit of everything, including two eggs, a biscuit, hash browns and a meat of your choice (bacon, sausage, ham, steak or chicken). The hash browns were the frozen crowns, grocery store variety that I adore. The thin slices of bacon had that perfect balance of crispiness and bend to them. I love a good flop to my bacon, don’t you?

 

 

 

As for the biscuit, it might be the best biscuit in Little Rock, and that is not hyperbole. Buttery, light and slightly firm but not too dense, this scratch-made offering is why you need to go to Andy’s for breakfast. Pair the biscuit with an order of fluffy, scrambled eggs and you will be in absolute heaven. It gets even better because while I am not a huge pancake guy, those, too, were delightful. My tablemate and I gobbled up the griddled cakes with just as much fervor as the other items on the table. 

 

 

A reader mentioned that the Breakfast Wrap is also a great option. Guess I have something different to order on my next visit. I also want to try the steak on my Biscuit Breakfast sandwich. I went with the sausage patty this time, and although I enjoyed the protein, folks said the steak is the way to go. Honestly, you could pair a leather boot with that biscuit, and it would still taste great. 

 

Looking back, my only knock on the breakfast at Andy’s was the coffee. It is nothing special, especially for a java-snob like me. But if you are just looking for a regular cup of Joe, it will suffice. 

 

Here is the best part: While the food will bring you through the door, it is the friendly, downhome service that will keep you coming back time and again. The ladies behind the counter are so sweet and welcoming. Great service makes a big difference, and when you combine it with top-notch, reasonably-price food, then you have something special. 

 

Please go find out for yourself. Hey, you don’t even have to get out of your car, as Andy’s has a drive-thru.
