I ate lunch at the Universal Joint and had the arugula mushroom quesadilla. It was delicious! The flavor was perfect and tasted fresh. My granddaughter had the chicken tacos and she loved them. This was the first time I ate at the Universal Joint and I am glad we now have one where I live.

Great burgers, big, juicy and delicious. You can also get any of the burger options made w a chicken breast instead. Nice craft beer selection on tap.

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
