New Haven caterer adds barbecue carryout

Andy's Knockout Barbecue, which had been catering for corporate events and fundraisers, opened its first location Tuesday, at 404 Broadway St., New Haven. Andy's is a carryout-only spot with a variety of barbecue favorites – St. Louis-style ribs, legs, wings, potatoes and the like.

But the favorite menu item has proven to be the half chicken, owner Mark Anderson says.

“It's just been a passion,” he says. “Barbecuing is something my family has done forever.”

The cooking is done on the 22-foot stainless-steel grill, which travels with Anderson for catering and fundraising events.

Part of the reason Anderson decided to open the carryout business was its success at the Taste of New Haven last year. The event gave out an award to the customers' favorite, and Andy's won. Of the 18 businesses in the competition, Anderson says, Andy's received 72 percent of the vote.
