Ordered a arugula mushroom feta quesadilla. YUM! Great beer selection local to far. Menu is diverse for everyone. We went on a Monday mid afternoon. Very surprised how many people were there. Cool quaint town with art and diversity. They have an outdoor covered stage. Looks like they host music. Also cornhole friendly. Old filling station turned hip grill.

This is a cool place but the food and service is not good... We have been here 4 or 5 times and the service is always slow and the food is subpar...

Stopped in after a few vineyard tastings for a quick lunch. I was happy they had Omission beer and a (limited) gluten free menu. Hubby had a mushroom Swiss burger that he said was "good" and I had a mixed greens salad. Overall, decent food. Excellent atmosphere, though.

Mostly outdoor dining, add a stage, fire pit, and good food...plus a jacket (it is, after all, March) for a good time with family. I loved the ambiance of the place, like you would find in a college town. My husband and I had the brisket dip with fries. My son had the buffalo chicken quesadilla and tots, his wife... More

My wife and I have been to this place several times over the past few years and have loved the atmosphere and food each time we visited. Our trip this evening left us irritated and questioning our willingness to return. The food has drastically declined since our last visit. Our pita on our hummus plate were so crispy they were...

Stopped in for late lunch on Sunday, it was beautiful outside and the place was very busy. It seems the tables turn over quickly so no wait for anyone. Seemed to have a great list of beer, wine, and beverages and our waitress as well as other staff I encounter were very hospitable. They even have a cornhole game on... More

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.
