Andy's Barber Shop is a one man operation located in the heart of Escondido's downtown area. I have owned the shop since 1992. My gray parrot, named Blackjack, is always ready to greet you outside the door. During my open hours its first come, first served but I'm always glad to come in a little early or stay a little late to accommodate your schedule.

"I went there w my wife for our anniversary. Big difference from last year- the warm vibe is there as soon as you walk in. I read about the general manager / sommelier "geno" and there he is at the front walking us to the table. He selected all of our wine which were perfectly paired with the food.
