Small neighborhood hangout in Oakhurst where you will want to become a regular. Good service & food. On nice days time will pass quickly sitting on the patio overlooking the "village" shops. Great place to be after dark.

Seems like UJoint has gotten worse, not better. Fewer decent beers, pretty average menu, spotty service. Great patio, but that's just not enough to draw me there. Such a great spot in the heart of Oakhurst, but if it's decent food and a good beer you're after, look somewhere else.

There is something for everyone on the menu. From burgers and BBQ to fish and salads with a few Quesadillas thrown in for good measure. Everything we had was good, the staff was nice and the drinks were flowing. Nice outdoor seating on a pretty corner with other shops and restaurants around. Lots of shade and a big fan to... More

We have two dogs and we like to take the U-joint. They have a large outdoor patio where four legged friends are welcome. Good vibe and good Brews. They changed their menu a year ago and took fried onions off the menu as a topping...guess I will have to adjust. Their burgers are cooked perfectly every time I go. And... More

We live within walking distance of Universal Joint and enjoy walking and dining on Tilapia Salad or hamburgers with olive tapenade to die for. Beers of every sort, margaritas or ginger ale depending on your mood. Love, love the recently renovated and spacious outdoor space of UJ! Highly recommend! Come out and support our local neighborhood "Cheers"!

My sister and I ate here Memorial Day weekend. The two girls who served us were absolutely great, friendly and attentive and knew the menu quite well. The food was excellent and the portions were large. Enjoyed the people watching and although I am two hours away, hope to go back soon to enjoy other menu items.

They have a good variety of beers on tap and nice outdoor seating at the main crossing area of Decatur (bars/restaurants on every corner). But that is where the good ended for me. I had a brisket sandwich - the roll was less than fresh, and the meat would have qualified for 'where's the beef'. There just wasn't much of... More

Really nice chicken sandwiches and burgers along with a great selection of brews. Very inviting atmosphere with outdoor seating right on the main plaza in Oakhurst. Seems very popular with the locals and I can see why.

the U Joint, as it's known by locals, is a great community hangout. My directions to my residence always include the Universal Joint, as most people know where it is. It has a wonderful patio, and the community congregates there in early evenings when the weather is nice (and sometimes when it's not) - bringing kids, significant others, friends, or... More

This is a GREAT place to hang out especially if the weather is nice and you can sit outside. Lots of fun, interesting people and the food is good. It is on a corner so it is a great place to people watch.
