I can't say for certain, but I think my wife got food poisoning from her chicken quesadilla. That being said, all the food for our party was delicious. It was a super busy night with the NFL playoffs on TV so I can't really complain about the service. It's a tight space and they did the best they could. I... More

It has a finely appointed bar with massive amount of seating surrounding it. Universal Joint is also a local heaven for beer connoisseurs and enthusiast as the huge variety offered is set to...

We stopped in for lunch on Monday and it was so good. They had a creme de latuie soup (which translates to cream of lettuce) which was incredible. The quest and salsa were quite tasty too, with the quest being a smoked tomatillo queso. Mom had the brisket dip which was tender and juicy, and I had the steinbeck's burger... More

Small sports bar with a very trendy menu ranging from burgers to hummus! We ordered the hummus with bread (very tasty) for our appetizer. I ordered a mixed greens salad w/grilled chicken topped with citrus dressing (yummy) and my husband ordered the brisket tacos which he said was very tasteful. Would definitely go again next time in town.

We recently stumbled across this place while visiting Clayton. It's a small bar/restaurant in an old converted gas station. There is indoor and outdoor seating, though the weather was a bit cold to enjoy the outdoors. Our wait staff was very friendly and helpful in making menu selections. We settled on a burger and fries, and a French dip sandwich... More

If you like burgers and a creative menu, this is the place for you. The food is tasty and the service is wonderful. Cozy up to the bar and watch a game while you try to decide which of the 15 draft beers to enjoy. You're gonna love this place.
