We went there two nights in a row and had a great time. The first night was just drinks and listening to the band. They have a nice selection of draft microbrews. The second nights was beers and burgers. I had the U Joint and it hit the spot with just enough jalapenos to spice it up. My wife enjoyed... More

The band that was playing last Friday night was awesome and the drinks wet our whistles! Prices were reasonable to. Overall, good place for drinks.

Fun and casual bar serving good bar type foods. Reasonable prices and welcomes families. Weekend bands outside in warm months makes this a really fun option! Good times!!!

I had heard nothing but good things about this restaurant and was not disappointed. The menu offered a good variety of foods including, salads, burgers, sandwiches, tacos, and more. I had the B.A.T. (bacon, arugula, and tomato) sandwich with tater tots and it was delicious! In addition to the food, the service and atmosphere were both very good. Overall, I... More

Heard about this place from a few different people. Took my two daughters and one of their friends. Three of us had hamburgers and one had chicken quesadilla. We loved it all. Tater tots were very good. We went late, 9:30 on a Sunday night. There were a few others there but service seemed a little slow but we were... More

We enjoy the Universal Joint in Oakhurst, Atlanta, and were happy to find a U-Joint here in Clayton, where we've eaten lunch a couple of times. Same great food - I had the arugula salad, hubby a hamburger with pimento cheese. They even serve the hard-to-find Omission beer, the best gluten-free beer we've found. Very relaxing to sit outside at... More

By saying they were perfect I mean they didn't do anything right. We waited an hour on a hamburger and a pimento cheese sandwich they were actually not busy at all. The wait staff never checked to see if we needed more drinks or anything else for that matter. When our food arrived it was cold and the tots looked... More

I highly recommend. Burger was excellent, fries were great, they have a huge selection of local beers on tap, and they have a nice outdoor seating area. If you are around Clayton and don't want to eat fast food, then come here. You won't be disappointed.

We went to the Universal Joint after finishing up our rafting trip. We went to eat, not really drink.This is an old converted garage with a large outdoor eating area - very nice; and they had good indoor accomodations as well. The burgers were very large - no squabbling about value... Those in our group who ordered burgers well-done did... More

We happened to stop in during the World cup and the place was PACKED on a weekday at 3 in the afternoon. In spite of this, our server had a smile on her face and the service was prompt and the food was good. Can't go wrong with the burgers. Will be back again when it's not so crazy and... More
