Really good bar food. BBQ Nachos were a big hit at our table. Our waiter was Dustin and he was awesome!

Was not pleased with any part of visit. Run down decor. Food unappealing and not flavor able. Would not recommend it or return.

We stopped by for a drink before dinner, it was busy yet seating and service were quick. I was a little disappointed with the beer selection - I had hoped for a wider choice. But what we had was OK. The burgers looked really good and we nearly changed our dinner plans! We would definitely try this place for a... More

UJ's has been a wonderful addition to downtown Clayton and draws people from all over 7 days a week! Their outdoor patio is a great place to see the action in Clayton while enjoying a super casual atmosphere! Great burgers, salads, beer and company. It's a "come as you are" place...and particularly when I just want a great hamburger and... More

My wife and I ate here on 7/25/15 looking to try someplace new. The U-Joint was hoppin with a live band and a packed outdoor dining area. We were sat quickly, a surprise considering how many people were there. We were told up front that orders were running about 40 minutes to service but that was fine with us. We... More

I love the outdorr seating. Even on a chilly night you can sit outside if you choose around the large fire pit. The live music is great on weekends. We had a bad server a few months ago but the owner, Nancy, was tremendously helpful and made it worth coming back and now we try to go once or twice... More

Since we found this fun and eclectic restaurant in Clayton in June 2015, we've eaten here 3 times. Even though this place is pretty busy, the service is excellent and the food is outstanding. I highly recommend both the brisket dip sandwich and the brisket tacos. My fiancé said her burger was incredible, too. We're looking forward to eating here... More

The Food at U Joint is great. The wait staff is usually busy, so do not expect premium service. I have here about four times as a local and it is great.
