A local favorite in downtown Clayton, this is a great place to hang out in warmer weather. The doors on the converted service station open up, and great music abounds. On the weekends, live bands set up on an outdoor stage. Lots of free parking around back. Food is basic burgers and salads, but tastes great. They are so busy... More

Awesome atmosphere here with tons of outdoor space and a fire pit. The food was great, especially the chips and queso.

We ate here one Sunday, and the place was packed. The angus burgers were great. If you want to go vegetarian, they have a black bean patie, and glute-free is also an option. The arugula salad with soy ginger dressing was delicious. Great craft beer selection. We will be back!

My wife and I loved the hospitality and personality of the Unicersal Joint. From the fresh ground hamburgers and frosty draught beer to the outdoor dining and courteous staff, this place encompasses what the spirit of Clayton has. Great for the young and old.

We were on our way back to Atlanta from the mountains and decided to eat lunch in Clayton. Normally we just eat fast food on 441. I pulled out my phone and got Trip Advisor recommendations for the area. We decided on Universal Joint and were not disappointed. We ordered the tomatillo cheese dip and chips. It was really good---very... More

Fun outdoor vibe with relaxed atmosphere and good beer choices on draft. The food is trendy and eclectic, unique quesadillas, pork nachos, hummus, spring rolls and 11 burger choices round out the menu so there's something for everybody.

I can't speak for the food as we were never seated or served. We arrived around 3PM. We wanted to sit outside, but at the time we arrived, all of the outside seating was taken. The host informed us that it would be about 15 minutes. After waiting about 10 minutes, I noticed that there were 3 open tables in... More
